  • This is a well known tourist spot located in the Marina beach area of Chennai. There is a lack of cleanliness, and there are no good places to sit to enjoy the view. However, I was pleasantly surprised to see the throng of people even during a week day.

  • MGR memorial is a memorial structure built on the Marina beach in Chennai, India. It was built in memory of former Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu, M. G. Ramachandran. The architecture is so nice. The place is neat and clean and well maintained by the officials.
