Madras, which is now called Chennai, is the political and cultural centre of Tamil Nadu. It is also the symbol of the Dravidian movement in India. Chennai is India's oldest modern city, which is why it's called the "Gateway to South India." It may not have any famous sites like the Red Fort or Marine Drive. This busy city is a mix of different cultures and customs, and it shows how rich the history of the area is.

Key Points: 1. Get picked up and visit the Kapaleeswarar Temple: Pick you up from the place you specify (airport, train station, hotel, etc.). Start by going to the beautiful Kapaleeswarar Temple in Mylapore, which has the self-manifest Shiva Lingam. Check out the intricately decorated gopurams and see one-of-a-kind gifts like the Kasu Mala, a gold-coin string.
