Chennai Introduction
ChennaiFor the visitors wishing to explore South Indian extensively, Chennai - the capital of Tamil Nadu is the most convenient point of entry. Chennai has an international airport and a rail and road network that links it to all major towns and cities of the region. Chennai has grown from the merging of a number of small villages including its former namesake Madraspatnam. Though many still call it Madras, it is now officially known as Chennai. The city sprawls over more than 70 sq kms and rather than claiming a centre, retains its former regional hubs.
