THE TOWN: Chennai is the capital of the Indian state of Tamil Nadu and most populous city of the South of India. It’s one of the Indian cities most visited by foreign tourists (especially for health tourism), and is the 47th most visited city in the world. The Quality of Living Survey rated Chennai as the safest city in India. Lonely Planet named Chennai in 2015 as one of the top ten cities to visit and writes about it:”With its withering southern heat, roaring traffic and scarcity of outstanding sights, the ‘capital of the south’ has always been the rather dowdy sibling among India’s four biggest cities. But if you have time to explore Chennai’s diverse neighbourhoods and role as keeper of South Indian artistic and religious traditions, the odds are this 400-sq-km conglomerate of urban villages will sneak its way into your heart.
