The Leela Palace Chennai gardens


Chennai, formerly known as Madras, is the largest city in the southern part of India and capital city of Tamil Nadu state. The city has its eastern boundary with the Bay of Bengal which stretches for about 17km thereby making Marina, the second largest sea shore in the world.
Among Chennai’s greatest assets are its people, warm and extremely welcoming. Despite being a major hub to the south, it’s well worth a stay with several museums, temples and coffee shops a plenty. End your stay with a sunset saunter along the famous Marina Beach.
Recent years have added a new layer of cosmopolitan glamour, in the shape of luxury hotels, high end boutiques, contemporary restaurants and a sprinkling of swanky bars and clubs open well into the night.
