George Town/Parry’s Corner
George Town is one of the busiest and most commercial
neighbourhoods of Chennai.
It may not boast of pubs or
restaurants, but it surely offers something that the
rest of Chennai can’t - a strong whiff of history.
This historical area located in north Chennai is where
the city of Madras was officially born in 1640
alongside Fort St. George. A walk here leads you to
