  • Best place to roam around. Love the greenery, the old huge trees. The place has a character, a culture and vibes. The stage by the pond is magical.

  • A very famous and well known place for learning arts of various kind. They also have a ground for hosting exhibitions. Once in a while, they showcase சந்தை (market place) where people from all over India showcase their goods. Most of them are hand crafted goods, organic food and other such items. It's definitely a must visit place for it's feel and the products you can buy.

  • Beautiful place and people. This place is a must visit if you are in Chennai for some time. They have a small shop where they sell authentic Kalamkari fabrics and stuff made by their students. Kalakshetra university is a great place to learn classical performing arts.
