    What is closed tym of mgr memorial.?

  • Very Nicely Maintained Memorial dedicated to Dr. MGR. Even on a week day afternoon there were so many visitors paying respects to the Great Actor/Leader. Nice Golden Bust of MGR in the front is an attractive look for the monument.

  • It's one of the iconic places in Chennai. It draws crowd from the entire state due to the stature of this leader and his fame during his hay days. Since the crowd is unmanageable, the place is not too clean. There is a subway provided for the public to cross roads, but no one uses it which makes this place even more messier

  • No access to major part of the memorial. Well maintained yet lacks amenities including basic necessities. Could be maintained even more better to attract a lot more tourists.

  • Good place. But the quality of eateries in the beach have deterioited now. Bessy is better if you are planning to go into the beach for food.

  • Beautiful park and tomb for a major political figure. As a tourist, I really enjoyed the architecture of the memorial, but wish there was more information about the man.
