Chennai is also home to several revered places of worship like the Kapaleeswarar Temple, Kandaswamy Temple and Velankanni Church which are all an architectural marvel. Besides attracting tourists by its stunning architecture, the city hosts an annual Music Season spanning six weeks (December-January) and pulls music and performing art lovers from around the world. Visitors also have an option to relish the serenity of the world's second longest beach, the Marina Beach. Hotels in Chennai can be easily spotted near most tourist spots.

Chennai is widely regarded as Detroit of India for being an automobile hub, housing Ford, Hyundai and Nissan/Renault. Currently, the city is also witnessing boom in its IT sector. Old Mahabalipuram Road (OMR) or the IT Corridor is an ambitious project in Chennai which has attracted various IT Corporations and is definitely charting new success stories for the city. With this, and numerous avenues for recreation, like zoo, biological gardens, amusement parks and malls, the city has a lot to offer.
