What to Expect
You will be picked up from your hotel in the morning and driven to the headquarters of the Theosophical society located in Adyar, a suburb of Chennai. The Society was first established in New York but the headquarters were shifted to India after the two founding members, Mme. Blavatsky and Col. Olcott moved to India. Spend some time exploring the sprawling campus of the Society set amidst lush green gardens. The campus has an exceptional library with a very old collection of books.

Next drive to the campus of Kalakshetra Foundation. The Foundation was set up in 1936 for the preservation and teaching of traditional art and dance forms of South India. The sprawling campus is situated by the seashore and has a collection of several very old trees and plants. You can also see music and dance classes in progress.

After the campus visit, drive over to Elliot’s Beach, an exclusive beach of Chennai that has a Church and a modern temple dedicated to the Hindu Goddess Lakshmi situated close by.

After finishing your tour, enjoy lunch (beverage excluded) at a local restaurant. After lunch, you will be driven back to your hotel.
