    I visited this temple with my parents and friend. The place is quiet and holy for anyone who knows Baba. It is well known among locals and tourists.

    ISKCON Temple in Chennai is conveniently located just off the East Coast Road. A large and aesthetically pleasing temple, the place is clean and well maintained. Car parking is available. There is a food court which opens at 11am and a shop where one can buy books and souvenirs. Prasadam is given out free. You do need to climb quite a few steps in order to reach the main temple hall.

    Awesome place to visit. Entered the marine world with no expectations, exited with so much nice memories. You get to forget rest of the world when you are here. Lots of fish varieties. Most of which are a surprise to watch. You can spend atleast 3 hrs here peacefully. They have a good court and a popcorn stall too. Those who want to spend half a day outside city life, pls try visiting here once.

    The day we visited, we had a long queue in all counters for the tickets. But I booked online in a minute and entered the premises without wasting time. Sometimes they give offer while we book online too.

    Take kids and have fun.

    Talking about Besant Nagar Beach it is the chennai biggest and crowded beach of the state. The beach is very good and every year people from country and outside tourist comes to this beach to have fun with family and friends. The travel convince to the beach is very good and once can easily reach there. The accommodation and hotel and also present and nearby to the beach area and once can easily find a hotel in their budget. The local sightseeing is done with the help of local guides and individuals. Talking about the safety the safety measures are quite good developed at that area.

    We went to shop few things. which included Tamil Traditional clothes, visited a large store Pothys, Which housed every thing we sought. days later I wanted to backpack and went to neighbouring store called Saravana.

    Both the places, were extremely cheap, choice was wide and Staff behaviour was very good.

    I spent my childhood in Mylapore and hence returning for a visit was nostalgic, although it has become extremely commercial and crowded. But walking through the streets around Kapaleeswarar temple tank and by lanes brought back memories, not to forget the relegious fervor of the Markazhi month
