Chennai

Target Tours India Pvt Ltd. Chennai, a metropolitan south Indian city was initially known as Madras and is the capital of Tamil Nadu. The city is the country's fourth largest city and less jam-packed and spoiled than other Indian metro cities. The city carries the distinction of being the first settlement site of the East India Company, and the company set up its base here in 1639.

Chennai is beautifully placed on a long stretch that goes as long as 17km of the Coramandel coast and the waterways of Cooum and Adyar and the Buckingham Canal trisect it as well. This pulsating, expanding and fastest-changing city is also rated as the "Gateway to the South". The city boasts of a culture that is clearly poles apart from that of northern India. Music, dance and all art forms are a common sight for this religious Indian land.

Tondaimandalam was the term the region of Chennai had for those days and had its military headquarters at Puzhal. Modern Chennai is a result of a tiny village which was chosen by early English merchants for settlement.
