Settlements and Stories of Saidapet

Step back in time with our heritage walk through Saidapet, a neighbourhood steeped in history. 

Saidapet bears witness to a fascinating evolution from its days under Nawabi rule to its vibrant native community. Saidapet is a testament to political history and a melting pot of famous personalities who called Saidapet home. As we stroll through its bustling streets, we'll delve into the neighbourhood's past, discovering tales of illustrious personalities, ancient temples, and ancient town planning. 

Our journey will culminate with a unique culinary experience at Mari Hotel, where the legendary vada curry, an iconic local delicacy with flavours that has delighted the people of Madras for generations, first gained fame.
