Chennai Sightseeing Tour

Chennai, the first city of the South, and capital of Tamilnadu, has a chequered history dating back to 1639 when Francis Day and Andrew Cogan, agents of the East India Company acquired a Strip of Land granted on lease by the Vijayanagar Emperor. Fort St.George was built in Chennai for setting up a factory as a nucleus around which arose the British settlements. Gradually, but steadily the old tiny village like Triplicane, Egmore, Purasawakkam and Chetpat were clubbed with the new agglomeration of the fast growing Chennapatnam as it was know then.

Chennai, widely known as Madras till 1996, has a rich tradition and civilisation with a blend of the old, and the new, vibrating ceaselessly to keep pace with the rest of India, as the buoyant metropolis of the third most industrialised State.

People in Chennai are deep rooted in their cultural moorings and traditions, even though modernity has its own impact. Chennai is airy, spacious with verdant green patches and beaches. With a population of about six Million, Chennai is the fourth largest city in India. It has played a notable role in deciding the political destiny of India on many occasions. Chennai has regained its pride of place in the automobile industry as the 'Detroit of the South'. Days are not far away when Chennai may be a 'Silicon City' with high-technological knowledge in software. May be that real India, in her pristine cultural warp and beauty as detailed in history, still lives in chennai. A visit to Chennai to see the graceful people of glorious land will surely help the visitor to carry home this imprint of Indian Heritage.

Connemera Public Library
Connemara Public Library at Chennai is one of the four National Depository libraries which receive a copy of all books, newspapers and periodicals published in India. Established in 1890 the library is a repository of centuries-old publications, wherein lie some of the most respected works and collections in the country. It also serves as a depository library for the UN.


Established in 1857, the Chennai Museum is undoubtedly one of the country's best museums located at Egmore. It has sections devoted to Geology, Archeology, Anthropology, Numismatics, Botany, Zoology and Sculpture besides which there is good collection of arms & armour as well as several other specimens of Anthropological interest. The museum's prized possessions however, are the relics from the 2nd century A.D Buddhist site at Amravathi & Pre-Historic exhibits from the stone & iron ages. the bronze gallery with its ancient icons & modern bronzes is perhaps the best found anywhere in the world.

By Air

Chennai is one of the four major international airports of India. The Kamaraj Domestic Airport and the Anna International Airport are located at Tirusulam, 7kms south of Chennai. The city has representation of almost all airlines of the world. Many major international airlines have regular direct flights to Chennai. Domestic airlines operate daily flights to all major cities of the country from the domestic terminal.

By Train

Chennai is the headquarters of Southern Railway and well connected to all the major cities in India through a wide network of railways. Trains operate from Egmore Junction to different parts of the state while interstate trains originate from Chennai Central Station.

Egmore Railway Station

The entire area south of Periyar EVR High Road (earlier known as Poonamallee High Road) and the curve of the Cooum river is known as Egmore. This was originally a small village that the East India Company acquired in the 17th century, as it began to expand its territories. Egmore was also one of the earliest residential localities, where wealthy company merchants built palatial homes surrounded by luxuriant garderns - the so - called "garden houses" that were extremely popular in colonial Chennai.
