Chennai Mini Guide
The Indian city of Chennai was formerly known as Madras, and it remains the capital of the Madras state. Because of this the main cultural event here is still known as the Madras music season.
The music scene in Chennai is very much dominated by soundtracks to films as the important Tamil film industry is based in Chennai.
As the fifth most populated city in India Chennai has some four and a half million inhabitants, but this doubles if you take into consideration the greater metropolitan area.
Chennai is located on the Bay of Bengal along the Coromandel Coast in the east of India. Because of this advantageous position it has always had a thriving urban industry as well as a naval base.
However the location of Chennai was a massive disadvantage in 2005 as it was severely affected by the devastating tsunami. Chennai was formerly ruled by many Indian dynasties but it was also partly colonised by the Dutch and the Portuguese.
