Chennai’s Quarantine Birthday: 10 Landmarks of ‘Madras’ That Travelled To Chennai!

Madras, Nalla Madras.

Have you heard the phrase?  In the pink of health. When someone uses that phrase, it means they are doing great. I guess there is someone who can use this phrase forever. They seem to be always bustling at an amazing age of 381. Yes, you guessed it right. I am talking about the one and only Madaraspatinam, Madras and my dear Chennai. (It all refers to the same city, in case you didn’t know).

Chennai is celebrating its 381st  birthday! Amidst the pandemic though the celebrations are not loud it still counts. So to celebrate our very own Chennai’s Lock-down Birthday let us have a look at few buildings, which has traveled from Madrasapatinam to Chennai:


  1. Fort St. George – 1644

Although Madras was born 377 years ago, it is only after the establishment of Fort St. George did the city grow and become the presidency. The Fort built 373 years ago, is almost as old as the city. Constructed for trading purposes by the East India Company, the building now hosts the Tamilnadu Legislative Assembly making it one of those heritage sites that never retired.
