Chennai Apartments and Housing (NO SPAM)

Chennai

Chennai is the capital of the Indian state of Tamil Nadu. It's home to a population of over 6.6 million people, making it the fourth most populous metropolitan area in India after Delhi, Mumbai and Kolkata. The city's name means "The Fortified City," an apt description given that Chennai was originally built around an old fort that served as a stronghold against Portuguese and Dutch invaders in the 16th century.


Besides being known as one of India's most colorful cities—with its rich blend of Hinduism, Islam, Christianity and other religions—Chennai is also known for its diverse cuisine options: Try out some authentic South Indian fare at places like Vadapalani Andavar Idli Shop or Saravana Bhavan; or sample some classic Chinese dishes at establishments such as China Town Restaurant or Surya Mahal Expressions. If you're looking for something more Westernized but with an Indian twist (and no shortage of seafood), check out Sigiriya Hotel in T Nagar for amazing seafood curries!


Chennai is also home to some of India's most famous landmarks: Marina Beach, San Thome Basilica and Fort St George. The city has a thriving theater scene too, with several plays being performed throughout the year at venues like Chevalier Theater and Ravindra Bharathi.


Chennai has a population of around 7 million, making it one of India's largest cities. The city is also a major center for education: It has several colleges, including the University of Madras, which was established in 1857; and it’s home to many arts and science institutions.
