Silver shopping in Mylapore, Chennai

Sukra Jewellery, near Rasi Silks, Mylapore. This is my sister's haul, she was wearing it today and I photographed it. Totally drool-worthy!

If you haven't already seen it, do take a look at the CHENNAI MAGIC SHOPPING GUIDE.

Suba and I have suggested shops for fabrics, jewellery, curios, and all sorts of other things. I'm sure you'll love it! We are updating it every now and then with new items, so please pop in regularly and take a look.

If you have not been to this area of Chennai before, try our Mylapore Walk. It offers a great introduction to this religious and cultural epicenter of the people of Chennai.

During this walk, you will visit the Kapaleeswara temple in the company of our knowledgeable guide. You can also walk through the surrounding areas, where you can see Mylapore in all its crowded chaos. The jewellers, silk merchants, fruit and vegetable sellers and the flower vendors in the bazaars provide a colourful backdrop to the temple. The walk takes you through small lanes with old-style homes, through silk shops, stores selling music and religious memorablia, ‘kutcheri’ auditoriums, etc.

At the end of the tour, we stop at the popular Saravana Bhavan for snacks and coffee. More details here.
