Chennai Citi Center:

According to me it is one very beautiful looking piece of architecture. Built with a medieval look, you can’t beat its location, being right next to the Marina Beach. It has a lot of branded stores and great eateries. Make sure you don’t miss out on the Van Gogh color room situated in the first floor. It is an instant photo kiosk, where you take a photo and apply whatever effects you want to it. The photo is printed immediately and is framed if you want. It will sure be a great display on your living room wall!
