  • A Must Go for nature lovers. Cyclones have destroyed their real beauty. Needs proper maintenance.
  • My most favorite place in Chennai which is known for the greenest and lush green environment !! There are only three green places in Chennai, which are also called as the lungs of Chennai, namely, 1. IIT and Guindy park, 2. Anna University, 3. Theosophical Society (World HQ).
  • A very calm all green pollution free property for evening n morning walks. But one needs you get a written permission from their office.
  • This place is absolutely run down. The grounds are in shambles but one should consider there has been a flood in 2015 and a hurricane in 2016. The library books are rotting and are in a card catalog system. This means you cannot even interact with books themselves. Additionally there are so many random books mixed in that are not spiritual books at all. Lastly the staff was extremely unfriendly and unprepared to help and spoke very bad English.
  • A calm and beautiful place to get peace and to see varieties of flora
