Chennai – Brief History

Chennai, the capital city of Tamil Nadu, is located at the North east of the state. Apart from being a major district, this metropolis also serves as the gateway of South India. General information about Chennai reveals that of late, the city of Chennai has developed as one of the cosmopolitan cities in India that plays an important part in the cultural, intellectual and historical growth of India.

Chennai is a culturally developed city replete with centres of Carnatic Music and cultural events. Apart from the vibrant theatre life scene Chennai also has a popular film industry with numerous studios involved in the making of Tamil, Kannada, Malayalam, Telugu, and Hindi movies which popular all across India

Unlike some other cities in India, Chennai doesn't have any world famous monuments or tourist attractions. It's a city that requires time and effort to really get to know and appreciate it.There are two amusement parks located a short distance from the city -- the amusement park at VGP Golden Beach, and MGM Dizzy World. The five week Madras Music Season in December and January is a big cultural draw card. The annual Pongal festival also happens mid January. However, Chennai unfortunately lacks the cosmopolitan nightlife of other Indian cities.

Chennai has a hot and humid climate, with summer temperatures in late May and early June often reaching an extreme 38–42 degrees Celsius (100–107 degrees Fahrenheit).

The city receives most of its rainfall during the northeast monsoon, from mid September to mid December, and heavy rains can be a problem. The temperature decreases to an average of 24 degrees Celsius (75 Fahrenheit) during winter, from November to February, but doesn't drop below 20 degrees Celsius (68 Fahrenheit).
