Public restrooms nearby memorial are not maintained well. So if you are planning to take a dip in the beach and use the restrooms you might have to consider other restrooms in the beach. Ample parking space available even for buses. Lot of street food vendors also present for a light snack.
Nice place to hang out with family before/after visiting Marina Beach. Cleanliness is not upto the mark, stray dogs should have been kept outside and crows shouldn't be fed here to maintain sanitation. The memorial structure is great. Full points to the designer of memorial and gate.
If you are in Chennai then you should not miss this place. It is so beautiful and artistic. Dr. MGR, was the great chief minister of Tamil Nadu. Here you can see his golden statue. Very good place, you'll certainly come once.
A Simple Structural Beauty. Peaceful atmosphere. Well maintained and clean. You could feel the Tamil people's love towards those great personalities when you visit the place. Good place to visit with your family or friends. Best time to visit is after 5 when the atmosphere isn't that hot.
It's a good place to visit. But maintenance is disappointed. In evenings after 5pm the place will be crowded so keep eyes on your things and keep your children safe. This place in marina beach so it's great place to spend time who come from remote places. 😀😀😀😀😀😀😀
