Det skal I lave

The heritage walk starts at the beautiful Kapaleeshwar Temple with great spiritual vibes and an abundance of friendly cats. We talk about the history and architecture of the temple and the precinct, Mylapore, before heading into the residential neighborhoods. The people here are warm and inviting, often eager to talk about the old, eclectic houses they have been living in. We attempt to trace the evolution of the community, from streets filled with temple devotees and priests, to the expanding neighborhood welcoming new cultures to form a true melting pot of traditions, religions and businesses. Mylapore pre-dates Chennai itself. It finds mention in Roman trader journals and records of merchants from Persia. Walking through this area today is a process of digging up the many layers of history and culture that have accumulated over the centuries.

I founded 'Madras Inherited', a heritage initiative that wants to celebrate and protect the heritage of Chennai city. As a qualified historian and conservation architect, I love taking people to see the offbeat parts of my city. I have hosted more than 75 themed and curated heritage walks over a period of 3 years for locals and tourists alike. Exploring Indian cities can seem daunting and a lot of the best kept secrets are hidden away in streets, markets and alleys that can be intimidating to any body not accustomed to the incessant chaos and overwhelming energy. Walking with a local expert like myself helps to solve these riddles and make sense of the communities, customs, traditions and neighborhoods in Chennai.

Her skal du være

We start the walk at a celebrated place of worship, the Kapaleeshwar Temple in Mylapore, Chennai. The many myths associated with this temple are the perfect starting point to a walk that will take us into the quaint residential area around it. The houses of Mylapore are old and eclectic, remnants of many layers of history that have shaped this heritage precinct over the centuries. We talk to locals and taste local food for the holistic experience
