About Chennai

Chennai formerly known as Madras, is the state capital of Tamil Nadu. Located on the Coromandel Coast off the Bay of Bengal, it is the biggest industrial and commercial centre in South India and also a major cultural, educational and economic centre. It is sprawling, bustling industrial metro established on the site of a fishing village in 1639 as the first British settlement in India. Chennai is a convenient entry point for southern India and has good links with other parts of India. Chennai is known as the 'Detroit of India' for its automobile industry. Chennai is the third largest city and fourth most populous metropolitan area in the country. The city is a strange mix of British era monuments, Portuguese churches, Hindu temples and one of the longest urban beaches on earth. While Chennai retains the old legacy, and in some ways it is a conservative bastion in social and religious matters, it is also the Bollywood of South India and a stronghold of traditional Tamil culture.
