I take a sightseeing tour of Chennai (Madras) - Origins of Chennai go back to the colonial period. It was established in 1639 as East India Company’s fort and trading post and later it became the political and economic capital of British territory in South India.

As we drive past the High Court which was built in late 19th century in Indo Saracenic style, through the local markets and visit the Museum which houses one of the world’s finest collections of South Indian bronzes I find that Chennai has a very distinct colonial character.
