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:
- 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.
