Mylapore Tours

One of the oldest residential neighborhoods in Chennai, Mylapore is the city’s cultural heart and an area filled with narrow streets, tree-lined avenues, temples, churches, flower markets and old shops, all begging to be explored on foot.

Life in Mylapore revolves around the stately Kapaleeshwarar Temple, a Dravidian-style temple to the Hindu god Shiva with a colorful gopurams, pyramid-like gateways covered in carvings of scenes from Hindu mythology. The streets surrounding the temple are packed with vendors selling flowers, sweets and other offerings to visiting devotees.

Travelers interested in the history and arts of Chennai will know the neighborhood as the birthplace of Thiruvalluvar, one of the greatest Tamil poets of all time.

Practical Info

Due to the heat and traffic, Mylapore is best visited in the early evening. This is also when the temple will be a hive of activity.
