Chennai City Facts

 

Situated on the east coast, Chennai, the fourth largest of the Indian Cities is the capital of  the state of Tamil Nadu. The Gateway to the South of India, Chennai was the first British major settlement in India. Though there are dominant British influences in the form of old Cathedrals, buildings in the Indo-Saracenic style of architecture and wide tree lined avenues, Chennai retains a charm characteristic of the typical South Indian heritage and way of living. Ever growing and changing, Chennai is a fascinating place, presenting an increasingly cosmopolitan exterior that contrasts sharply with a resolute and religious interior.
