CHENNAI FULL MAP
The city has a great deal to offer the visitor in the way of interesting sights and activities. Perhaps the oddest visitor’s attraction in the city is the Madras Snake Park, where over 500 species of snakes and reptiles are on display!
For the more traditional tourist, be sure to visit both the
Government Museum and the National Art Gallery. Fort St. George is
the center of the city and houses the state legislature and various
political offices. The Marina is impossible to miss, as it is the
world’s second largest beachfront area. However, these beaches are
not for swimming as the waters are shark-infested. None-the-less it
is a beautiful place with a flower-lined boardwalk.
More, you'll hear the splendid strains of classical music
and sniff a heady compound of Jasmines and spices, living
traditions that are still savoured from Chennai's ancient past.
Chennai has a mixed population of South Indians and North Indians. Apart from Tamilians and people hailing from Andhra Pradesh, Kerala, Karnataka; Chennai has a sizeable number of Gujarathis, Marwaris, Punjabis and people belonging to the Parsi , each group adding its colors to the rich tapestry of the modern city of Chennai .
Chennai is the base for automobile manufacturing giants like Ford, Hyundai, Ashok Leyland; Nylon giant Dupont; and is the home for Indian tyre giant MRF.
