  • One of the attractions in the city of Chennai in and around marina Beach. A political heavyweight who is regarded widely as the architect of modern Tamilian politics. It is located just by the main road that is on the beach itself. Visible from the main road. Entry is free and the compound is quite large in size in the middle of which the memorial is located.

  • The place is okay but quite dirty. Government should take care of the beach to make it clean. Beach should be look like clean & naturally beauty so that it can attract the tourists.

  • The memorial is strategically placed against the University of Madras to imprint a picture of the strong leader in the students. Clearly the visitors come here more as a devotee with some even tears in their eyes. The visual is all there for you to see. The memorial is built on Marina Beach and is under construction to include J Jaylalitha's samadhi alongside. Political it maybe but it does offer a wonderful sight
