O --- Old is Gold!


For the letter O, I am gonna post only pictures :) What pictures? Pictures of old monuments and wonders that are present in Chennai even now.

This Indo-saracenic white beauty is the offical house of the Corporation of Chennai. Designed and completed in 1913 by Loganatha Mudaliar and named after Lord Ripon, the then Governor General of British India, the Ripon Building is situated on the same road as the Chennai Central (see here).

This is the Fort St. George, the first English fort in India, built in 1644. The fort played a major role in the development of Madras (Chennai). This beauty is another magnificent structure.

This is the Government Museum of Chennai City, the second oldest (1851) in India and one of the largest in Asia.

This again was built during the British Raj times in the Indo-saracenic style.











Have a nice day folks! :)
