Welcome to the 2012 edition of the festival.
All great cities have a soul. Mylapore can rightfully claim to be the soul of Chennai. It pre-dated Chennai's birth and watched the city's growth. Mylapore retains many of the old landmarks, culture and heritage of a village, yet has not escaped development
So it deserves a festival of its own. That is why the Sundaram Finance sponsored Mylapore Festival is organised every year during January.
What began as a simple kolam contest for the community in the year 2001 organised by the neighbourhood newspaper, Mylapore Times ( in its 17th year), has now grown into the Mylapore Festival.
Four days. Ten venues, 30 events, 300 artistes. And thousands of people visit and soak in it. Welcome to what is Chennai's most unique festival held in the spaces all around the famed Sri Kapaleeswarar Temple and at the Nageswara Rao Park. The 2012 fest will take place from Jan 5 to 8, 2012.
Come, be part of it!
