Chennai is the capital of Tamil Nadu and is one of four cosmopolitan cities of India along with New Delhi, Mumbai, and Kolkata. While it’s a visibly westernized city with sparkling boutiques, luxury hotels, swanky clubs, quirky cafes, and smart contemporary restaurants, Chennai is still teeming with old culture and remains deeply rooted in tradition, and the San Thome Cathedral, Kapalleshwarar Temple, Government Museum, and Fort St. George are all excellent examples of its history. Chennai is also home to several natural attractions, such as Sri Ramakrishna Math, a tranquil, flowery oasis; the Theosophical Society; and Marina Beach, a nearly 2-mile stretch of beach featuring fish markets, fortunetellers, and cricket matches.
