About Nungambakkam

Nungambakkam, one of the oldest localities of Chennai is flourishing with multinational commercial establishments, shopping malls, plush hotels, restaurants, sports academies, cultural centers and a lot more. It is surrounded by some equally important places of Chennai such as Egmore, T. Nagar, Kodambakkam, and Kilpauk. In the early 20th century, Nungambakkam was popular as one of the upper-class residential areas for Europeans. Apart from its beautiful monuments that attract tourists, this place is a heaven for shopaholics. Hand knotted carpets and rugs from Persia, handicrafts, furniture, home décor, footwear and art galleries exhibiting some of the finest works of leading artists, sarees, salwar suits and lehengas from different parts of India are available here. Other than the chic showrooms flaunting their plush products, you can also amble through the narrow streets of Nungambakkam, where you find street-side vendors selling interesting goods on their attractive carts.
