Whether it is true or not, visitors often hope to witness that event at least once. If you are fond of fine architecture, you must visit this place, as it offers both peace and happiness.


An unexplored beauty from the Eastern Ghar. Nagalapuram is just 75 kilometres away from Chennai, which is nothing short of a marvel.
