This charming city in the Southern part of India is blessed with beautiful beaches and a rich cultural backdrop.

Vast sandy beaches are the signature trait of the city and a leisurely walk through the scenic Marina Beach promises to be a memorable experience. The religious sights in the city are all architectural marvels with Dravidian style temples, churches with Portuguese and Victorian leanings and Mughal-inspired mosques.
