About CHENNAI

Chennai, formerly known as Madras, is the capital of Tamil Nadu State and is India's fourth largest metropolitan city. It is located on the Coromandel Coast of the Bay of Bengal with an estimated population of 6.98 million (2006). The 368-year-old city is the 34th largest metropolitan area in the world.

 

Chennai is the third largest commercial and industrial centre in India, and is known for its cultural heritage and temple architecture. It is also a hub for South Indian classical music and dance performances.

 

Chennai is considered the automobile capital of India, with a major percentage of the automobile industry having a base here and a major portion of the nation's vehicles being produced here. This has led to Chennai being referred to as the Detroit of South Asia.  Many multinational software companies are located in Chennai. It has also become a major centre for outsourced jobs from the West. The 12-kilometre long Marina Beach forms the city's East Coast. Chennai is also one of the rare cities to accommodate a Zoological Park, the Guindy National Park, within its city limits.
