CHennaii ............. its hot ...

Chennai is the capital of Tamil Nadu with an estimated population of 7.5 million it is the fourth largest metropolitan city in India . The city was established in the 17th century by the British, who developed it into a major urban centre and naval base. By the 20th century, it had become an important administrative centre . Chennai's economy has a broad industrial base in the automobile, technology, hardware manufacturing, and healthcare industries. The city is home to much of India's automobile industry and is the country's second-largest exporter of information technology and information-technology-enabled services .
Thirty-five countries have consulates in Chennai.
Abutting the Bay of Bengal, Chennai has one of the loveliest beaches. The 4.5 km long beach is the second longest beach in the world. A stroll along the Marina, whether in the morning or evening, refreshes one.The old Saracenic buildings dotting the other side of Kamarajar Salai, a main road along the Marina, would bring back memories of good old British Raj. The Senate House of the University of Madras and the old buildings now housing government offices, such as Ezhilagam and the Director General of Police office. They wear a mystical look in the morning when the Sun rises.

A walkway along the beach bordered with a green lawn entices you to go on a leisurely stroll. At the intersections of this promenade stand beautiful statues of Tamil scholars, patriots, and noted personalities. Of these, the Statue of Labour is a splendid sculpture depicting the efforts of a team of labourers who are at strenuous, manual work. The sea in this part is not recommended for swimming, as the currents are violent. And this beach is the most clean beach that you can see in the world .

Another great aspect of our beach is that you can find all the film start politician stars and you can also take photographs with then just for 20 rupees very cheap actually ..
