Things to Do in Chennai

  • Wallajah Mosque

    A historic landmark and an architectural marvel, the Wallajah mosque is popularly known as the Big Mosque in Chennai. Built by Muhammad Ali Walajah, the building was constructed in line with proper symmetry and is a great example of Indian, Islamic and Iranian architecture. Neither metal nor wood was used to avoid depletion in later stages.

    Made of grey-coloured granite, the mosque has two minarets in the front. The grounds of the mosque are often used as a place for conducting religious and cultural functions. During the month of Ramzan and Id, the mosque is flooded with many devotees. Another special event that is grandly celebrated is Prophet’s birthday in the vast grounds of the mosque. Besides the prayer hall, the mosque is also home to the tombs of various Muslim saints.

  • Fort Museum

    Nestled amidst walls of the St. George Fort in Chennai, Fort Museum was constructed in the year 1948. Supervised by the management of Archaeological Survey of India (ASI), the museum displays an antique collection of historic items and valuables like arms, uniforms, medals, porcelains, coins, manuscripts, paintings, prints and textiles.

    Here, you would find unique artefacts from the British and French East India times as well as the Mughal Raj and Muslim era. Admire the giant statue of Lord Cornwallis that stands more than 14 feet tall at the entrance of the museum and the epic canons of Tipu Sultan. The museum also houses pieces of shells that were fired during the two World Wars.
