Situated on the east coast of India, Chennai is one of the greatest metropolitan cities of the world and the fourth largest city in the country. Down the ages Chennai has grown from a number of small coastal villages including its former namesake Madraspatnam to the mighty city of Madras to the modern Chennai.
Chennai, on the Coromandal Shore conveys a sense of spaciousness and ease lacking in many other big Indian cities. A widespread city still open to skies; a green, airy city with several vestiges of its rural past; a city whose values of another day still survive in the midst of the humdrum bustle of today; a city that still retains the charm, culture and courtesies of the ages.
This city, with an international and domestic terminal, is well connected by air to the rest of the globe. It has a big port and has excellent infrastructure to support transport facilities.
For travelers with an interest in the rich and volatile colonial history of India, Chennai and its environs have much worth exploring.
