TVG hosts fest in Besant Nagar temple; Dec.18 onwards

One venue in the city is special to some artistes.
The hall at the Sri Varasiddhi Vinayaka Temple in Besant Nagar, south Chennai.
It is simple, clean and can accommodate about 300 people. The music of the temple rituals also floats in but that creates the atmosphere!

Musicians and dancers living this side of the city like to perform here.
