  • Awesome place. A big salute to the Martyr and biggest thanks to government for maintaining it. Thanks to all who safe guard it. Truly an inspiration and motivation for the young generation to be loyal to the nation.

  • It was very pleasant to watch the flag hoisting during the sunrise and flag lowering before sunset. This is a daily routine at this place by the army personnel. Please do plan to watch either in the morning or in the evening. Do not miss to watch this event if you plan to visit this place .

  • This place is open from morning till evening on all regular days. Bringing food from outside here is not allowed. Located on the outskirts of Chennai. Best is to visit in early morning or late evening hours, as afternoon is very hot.
