Get Lost In These Unique Hidden Treasures Of Chennai


Chennai is one of the most progressive cities in the country. Western cultural themes imbibed, accelerating changes in modern-day dynamics and yet the city has somehow managed to keep its traditions and history intact. If you are in Chennai and all the generic modern themes don’t quite interest you, here are a few unusual spots that are well and truly “Exclusively Chennai”

1. Theosophical Society

If you are someone looking to explore new horizons for a serene mind, try a visit to the Theosophical Society at Adyar. A society inbuilt by its very own principles and ideas, one can be guaranteed to leave the place with a different perspective towards celestial nirvana or at times the truth of life.

2. Cholamandal Artist Village

Chennai is everything art and culture, and the Cholamandal Artist Village is a fitting testimony to the city’s affinity to it. Since its inception in 1966, the art village has been an art gallery, an art museum, an amphitheatre and everything ‘art’!. 

3. Adyar Eco Park

Life every day isn’t a walk in the park, but a visit to the Adyar Eco Park could be one (Pun intended). The vast acres of this iconic park is a must-visit if you are in Chennai. Being one of you could also feel free to pay a visit to the Snake park nearby!

4. Tirusulam Mount

The mount is one of the very few places that reflects the metro in a different light. Though public entry has been restricted due to its proximity to the airport, a platform ticket at the Tirusulam Railway station between 4 pm – 6 pm, your favourite playlist plugged in, and a sunset to behold – is an experience from yours truly Chennai!

5. Ottiambakkam Quarry

The Quarry is quite an experience altogether. Tranquil green waters hidden away from the music of the metro city, the quarry is a disparate space inside the city’s landscape. Feel free to take a dip, but make sure you know to swim, the water’s deep!

What are you waiting for? Put on your adventure hat and explore these hidden gems of the city!
