Escorted Rail Tours to Chennai

The city once known as Madras

Formerly known as Madras, Chennai began as a collection of villages, which were transformed by the arrival of the British East India Company who built a factory and created a trading port here in 1693. The British developed it as a major naval base and an urban trading center - by the start of the 20th century Madras was a vital administrative hub for the region.

In recent years, as part of an independent India, Chennai has developed significantly and has achieved significant economic growth. The city has been able to support this growth thanks to its favourable infrastructure and the availability of space into which the city can grow.

Today Chennai is India's fourth-largest city, home to a fascinating collection of colonial buildings, beautiful temples, monuments, churches and street markets, as well as a beautiful sandy beach, one of the longest in the world.

70 years ago, on the 15th of August 1947 India became the country that we know and love today. Following the departure of the British after nearly 200 years of what is known as the ‘British Raj’ (or ‘British Rule’), India suffered a period of turmoil, with Pakistan off from India, but it has since risen to become one of the main superpowers of the modern world.
