Chennai audio tour: Marina Beach Walk

About the Tour

Come join me for a stroll along Marina Beach, India's longest. This tranquil setting comes alive in the evening with hawkers selling their wares and people enjoying the sound of the waves and the fresh air. While you soak up the sea breeze, I'll be introducing you to the personalities that have shaped not only the Tamil language, culture and politics, but that of India as a whole. We will journey through the centuries and discover the mavericks who have defined what it means to be not only Tamil, but human. Discover Tamil history in this tranquil, yet vibrant setting.
