One of the costliest quaint neighbourhoods of Chennai is Adyar, that gets its name from the Adyar river that flows nearby. It has rich historical and cultural roots and is sprinkled with some of city’s oldest residential houses. Home to the IIT campus and with the Guindy National Park close by, it is considered to be one of the hottest spots in the city with the best of eateries, an easy access to the beach and a
shopping hub. It’s worth taking a walk in the quiet bylanes to sample traditional south Indian dishes at well-known local family-run establishments especially the rural food from Tamily Nadu, Andhra Pradesh and Karnataka. A visit to the Padmanabhaswamy Temple keeps the flavor of the temple town intact.
