About Chennai

Nicknamed, 'Detroit of India', home to the famous Tamil film industry, one of the most visited Indian cities, Chennai is the fourth largest city in India. This city is all about beaches, diverse population, rich culture, and deeply rooted traditions, and is also called the Gateway to the South. The city still has glimpses of the impressive monuments built during the British rule, when it was known as Madras. A well-connected city bus service system and tram routes reflect a well-planned infrastructure. The mouthwatering and nourishing South Indian cuisine has impressively captured the global palate too. Impeccably carved and painted with figurines of Gods and Goddesses, the magnificent temples enthrall the devotees. Adorned with 17th-century spectacular Anglican churches, the city is the largest economic, social and cultural center of south India. Bragging the title of health capital of India, Chennai has been ranked as the safest city in the country. The city exquisitely blends modern infrastructure with traditional values and is listed in the UNESCO Creative Cities Network for its rich traditional music contributions. Evolving as one of the first few smart cities of India, Chennai promises the world-class, consistent quality of living with culture and language that Tamilians take pride in.
