I just now enquired. It is "HOTEL COMFORT" (Address: No.22, Vallabha Agraharam, Triplicane High Road, Chennai - 600 005 (Opposite to Star Theatre)
Phone: (044) 28587661. Rent: For AC Room - Rs.825/- per day and for
Non-AC Room - Rs.525/- per day.

I was informed that many foreigners are staying in that hotel. It is comparatively very cheap. (I dont know how good the room will be, which I can find out later). Location wise, though it is congested, it will be convenient for move around.

Advance booking is essential. So, based on your reply, I can book a room in the hotel.

You may send your reply to both my following email ids: ns_serc@yahoo.com / psdir@sercm.org

Regards,
N. Subramanian

Cricket, the most popular sport in Chennai

by joshtiglao

The M.A. Chidambaram Stadium (MAC) in Chepauk is one of the oldest cricket stadiums in India. The Chemplast Cricket Ground on the IIT Madras campus is another important venue hosting first class matches. Prominent cricketers from the city include former Test-captains S. Venkataraghavan and Kris Srikkanth. A cricket fast bowling academy, the MRF Pace Foundation, whose coaches include Dennis Lillee, is based in Chennai. Chennai is home to the Indian Premier League cricket team, the Chennai Super Kings. Chennai is also home to the Indian Cricket League team, the Chennai Superstars, who won the first ever ICL 20s championship and the ICL Domestic 50s.

The Mayor Radhakrishnan Stadium is regarded by the International Hockey Federation as one of the best in the world for its state-of-the-art infrastructure. The city is home to a Premier Hockey League (PHL) team, the Chennai Veerans, and has hosted many hockey tournaments such as the Asia Cup and the Men's Champions Trophy.

St. Thomas Mount

by Rodan44

The apostle St. Thomas (doubting Thomas) traveled thru southern India from 52 to 72 AD spreading the Gospel of Jesus Christ. His preaching met with much success and he made many converts and established several churches. He is believed to have been martyred on a hill just outside the modern city of Chennai, and this hill is now known as St. Thomas Mount.

Although St. Thomas' body was later removed from the site, the Portuguese built a small church on the site in 1523 (on the foundations of an even earlier church), which can still be visited today. The site is still maintained by the local Catholic diocese, and there is a convent there as well. The 100 meter high hill can be accessed either by 134 stone steps or by road. The hill also offers excellent panoramic views of Chennai and the nearby airport. Pope John Paul II visited the site a few years ago, and there are plaques to commemorate this.

Chennai, India

by siwaydi

"Where did the name "Chennai" came from?"

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.

Although some believe Chennapattinam was named after the Chenna Kesava Perumal Temple, as the word Chenni in Tamil means face, and the temple was thought of as the face of the city.

The former name, Madras, is derived from Madraspattinam, a fishing village that lay to the north of Fort St. George. The origin of the name Madraspattinam is a subject of disagreement. One theory holds that the Portuguese, who arrived in the area in the 16th century, may have named the village Madre de Deus.[9] However, historians believe that the village's name came from the once prominent Madeiros family (variously known as Madera or Madra in succeeding years), who had consecrated the Madre de Deus church in Santhome in 1575 (demolished in 1997). Another theory says that the village was named after an Islamic college (a madrasa) which was located in the area. After the British gained possession of the area in the 17th century, the two towns, Madraspattinam and Chennapattinam, eventually merged. The British referred to the united town as Madraspattinam, while the locals preferred to call it Chennapattinam.

The city was officially renamed Chennai in 1996, about the same time that many Indian cities were undergoing name changes. Madras was seen as a Portuguese name.
