Chennai Guide

Chennai, the capital of Tamil Nadu is worth exploring during a South India Tour. Previously known as, Madras, this southern India city is famous for its temples and churches. Chennai, the home to Tollywood, South Indian Cinema, has always stood up to an actor's aspiration to act in South Indian movies. When in Chennai, do make sure to visit its downtown to feel the true flavor of this southern Indian city.

When talking about Chennai downtown, we are actually talking about Mylapore region that is typically dominated by the Hindus. Exploring Chennai downtown could be a real fun if you plan in advance and seek the help of a car hire agency. Crowded as ever, downtown area in Chennai or Mylapore is one of the oldest areas in Chennai. This cultural hub of Chennai is surrounded by some attractive temples like Kapaleeswarar Temple, Srinivasar Temple and KesavaPerumal Temple.

Majority of people speak Tamil in the area like downtown, and if you don't know this language, you won't be able to check this place out. So, do hire a car from a car hire agency that will provide you with a Tamil and English-speaking driver. Apart from solving your problem of language difference, a car hire agency can be your guide in telling what to look for in Chennai downtown.

Now, don't worry about where to find a good car hire agency to explore Chennai downtown, simply visit 18 Anna Salai, a place where you will find a number of car hire agencies to choose from. Another great option to get a car hired is searching as well as booking a car online, this will be both time and money saving. Moreover, the guide cum driver will save your time in taking you to the less crowded areas of Chennai downtown.

What do I need to do when picking up a car?

To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver.
