Hi,
If you are well-off, then i will say that the reply is useless, But if you do not want to drain money then this message will be useful.

Airport opposite is the railway station,
Just take a ticket to a station called "Egmore railway station"(max. ticket rs.7.00-). journey time is 30-40 mins, egmore railway station is a major railway junction, so you can spot the differene between ordinary station and the egmore station(more number of platforms).

After you get down at the railway station ask which side is the albert theatre, because if you take the left of the station then there are not hotels, only the right hand side of the railway station you can find hotels.


There are lot of hotels for rs.100/- to rs.1000/- and much more at egmore railway station.

Now you have checked in.

From egmore to shankar nethralaya hospital costs rs.20-35 only by auto, if you go by call taxi then rs.50 extra.

If bus is convenient to you, then at the railway station you get lots of buses, which is 3 stoppings from the bus stand, nothing more than 10-15 mins of travel.

DO NOT TAKE AUTOS FROM SHANKAR NETHRALAYA HOSPITAL, CROSS THE ROAD AND MOVE AWAY FROM THE PLACE AND THEN TAKE A AUTO TO GET YOU BACK TO HOTEL,

IF YOU WANT TO VISIT THE HOSPITAL COMPULSORILY BY AUTO ONLY, THEN CATCH A AUTO AND TELL HIM THAT YOU WANT TO GO TO "DPI"(DEPARTMENT OF PUBLIC INFORMATION) NEAR TO SHASTRI BHAVAN. GET DOWN AT "DPI", OPPOSITE IS THE SHANKAR NETHRALAYA HOSPITAL.

COMPULSORILY BARGAIN WITH THE AUTO MEN.

Local phone number for any enquiry or assistance call: 044-26444444. This number is something similar to yellow pages enquiry, but make a polite request to the guy about something which you want to know, for example you are lost and want to find the place. etc.


incase of any emergency, you can go to central railway station, just 2 stoppings from egmore railway station, you can go by the same train or hire an auto for rs.30/- maximum amount

Travel Tips for Chennai (Madras)

Muttukadu Boat House

by goutammitra

Muttukadu Boat House: Located at 23 Kms from Adayar, this backwater area is maintained by the Tamilnadu Tourism Development Corporation, and offers rowing and speedboat riding. This place has great potential but the bad marketing of TTDC ( Tamilnadu Tourism Development Corporation, they are just like our WBTDC) it is not getting clientale. First the timing is bad , the speed boat do not take you far in the deep, they go only for a very short duration less than 10mts. I asked the boatman to take us little further towards sea, he looked the other way, obviously he was not interested. The TTDC bus takes you there during mid day in scorching sun. In my view they should include Crocodile Park in their itenerary and drop VGB Golden Beach amusement park. It is fine entertainment for the people coming from the villages.

It is not run by TTDC themselves but they have given rights to some private company. The time is very short for boating about 10 mts, which they dont tell beforehand but you learn when you pay and ride the boat. It's just a touch and go. If there are more people waiting the boatman may just ask you to get down as you have seen and boarded on a power boat??? Hope someday TTDC will wake up?

Charges: As far as I remember, in 2004 it was Rs40/- per person.

Halal in Chennai

by alycat about Mouthful Restaurant

Landed here after thorough research looking for halal food and more importantly after days of veg stuff down my throat. Its situated in a residential area, but still surprising had a near 100% occupancy for the Friday lunch.

The chefs here put in a lot of effort and it shows in the presentation and taste of the food. Check out their menu which is online with prices. They have different parathas and naans, lamb meat cooked in typical afghani and north indian style. I stuffed myself and the bill was still under 200 bucks!

MADRAS HIGH COURT

Chennai(madras)

"Etymology"

The name Chennai is an eponym, etymologically derived from Chennapattinam or Chennapattanam, the name of the town that grew up around Fort St. George, built by the British in 1640. There are different versions about the origin of the name. When the British landed here in 1639 A.D. it was said to be part of the empire of the Raja of Chandragiri. The British named it Chennapatnam after they acquired it from Chennappa Nayaka, a Vijayanagar chieftain. Gradually, the name was shortened to Chennai. The first instance of the use of the name Chennai is said to be in a sale deed dated August 1639 to Francis Day, an agent for the British where there is a reference to Chennaipattinam

"History of chennai(madras)"

The region was ruled by Damerla Venkatapathy, the Nayak of Vandavasi. He granted the British permission to build a factory and warehouse for their trading enterprises. A year later, the British built Fort St George, which became the nucleus of the growing colonial city.In 1746, Fort St. George and Madras were captured by the French under General La Bourdonnais, the Governor of Mauritius, who plundered the town and its outlying villages. The British regained control in 1749 through the Treaty of Aix-la-Chapelle and fortified the town's fortress wall to withstand further attacks from the French and another looming threat, Hyder Ali, the Sultan of Mysore. By the late 18th century, the British had conquered most of the region around Tamil Nadu and the northern modern-day states of Andhra Pradesh and Karnataka, establishing the Madras Presidency with Madras as the capital. Under British rule, the city grew into a major urban centre and naval base

"Sports"

Chennai has produced popular tennis players such as Vijay Amritraj and Ramesh Krishnan and is host to an Association of Tennis Professionals (ATP) event, the Chennai Open. Football and athletic competitions are held at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium, which also houses a multi-purpose indoor complex for competition in volleyball, basketball and table tennis. Water sports are played in the Velachery Aquatic Complex. Chennai was the venue of the South Asian Games (SAF Games) in 1995
