About Chennai

Some time ago, known as Madras, Chennai is the capital city of the province of Tamil Nadu, in the southern piece of India. Situated on the Coromandel shore of the Bay of Bengal, Chennai is as unique as it is drenched in the convention. This 'capital of the south', is one among the four metropolitan kin of India, having a rich social history which it consummately offsets with its city way of life.

Amid its disorder of traffic and sweltering moist atmosphere, Chennai merits visiting for its sanctuaries saturated with south-Indian culture, British-period historical centers and landmarks, culinary enjoyments and Marina Beach (Second biggest urban seashore on the planet). Chennai's horizon is celebrated for its transcending high rises, yet the core of Chennai has an old-world appeal to it that won't be dominated.
