“City of Dreams” - Chennai
Formerly known as Madras, is the capital of Tamil Nadu and India’s 4th largest city. A real melding of cultures takes place here as a former stronghold of the British meets modern India in a charming, cosmopolitan city. Sightseeing highlights include Fort St George and a rich variety of museums, galleries, temples and churches.
The Kalakshetra Dance School is open to visitors during the mornings to observe the classes in progress. Located just south of Chennai is Dakshinachitra Cultural Centre, an extensive collection of restored homes from around the Southern States with live demonstrations by local artisans.
