This is not the first time that Tamil Nadu has found itself on such a list. Chennai, the capital of Tamil Nadu, was named among the top 10 cities to visit in 2015, according to Lonely Planet’s Best in Travel 2015. The Lonely Planet guide in its profile of the city had stated, “Chennai has long been seen as a stepping-stone to other parts of India. But with the opening of the Chennai Metro Rail, the capital of Tamil Nadu plans to raise its profile. If nothing else, fast and frequent air-conditioned trains will transform the experience of exploring this humid metropolis. And there’s plenty to see: statue-covered Dravidian temples, fascinating museums, British-era fortifications and churches, a 3km-long beach, and India’s second-largest movie industry, ‘Kollywood’.”
