M G R Memorial - Review
One of the most striking structures of the Marina Beach, the MGR Memorial is built as an ode to the former Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu, M. G. Ramachandran. Sprawling an area of some 8.25-odd acres, this Chennai attraction lies adjacent to another important attraction of the city the Anna Memorial. MGR memorial has been observed to receive the highest footfall on the seafront. In recent times, the attraction has gained more popularity being the burial site of former Tamil Nadu Chief Minister and MGR's protege J. Jayalalithaa.

A must visitable place near marina beach. It is a monuments on the honour of the former chief minister mr. MGR. It also has a museum. The place is too beautiful and well maintained. At evening it has another types of beauty. But there is a usual crowd on daily basis. From entrance to the monument it has its beauty. At night its own colourful lights make it more charming and beautiful. Must visit this place before or after enjoying the beauty of Maria beach.
An interesting place. Especially for me as a foreign tourist. But for only one visit. I see no reason why I would like to go there again. Located on the beach, so you can start from this memorial and take a walk along the sea afterwards. And it's really crowded in the weekends. Parking? You should be really lucky for that and ready to pay for it.
One fun fact-people say they can still hear the sound of MGR's watch when they place one ear pressed to the tomb. I've tried it but not sure whether i heard it not. You should definitely try it.
Well maintained. Thousands of peoples visiting and paying their tribute to their beloved leader especially south tamilnadu people if the petty sellers removed from within it will be much appreciable
The place is not as expected. If you are a true MGR fan, you can visit it. The place is very close to marina beach. If you are going to the beach you can give a running visit to the place. Not much of q tuorist place it is.
