An extremely crowded and narrow road connecting Usman Road to Mambalam Railway Station , this is the ultimate urban nightmare. Enter into this street at your own peril because the moment you enter , you will be swallowed in a sea of humanity jostling for space. Why do so many people go there ? For shopping of course. The street... More

The ranganathan street in T.nagar, Chennai was busy and crowded even before 45 years when I used to go there as a student. Now it is bursting at the seams and is thronged by people from all parts of India. It is mostly crowded with low Middle class and middle class people and to some extent high middle class people....

it's great fun just walking around here, but it's packed with people so hard sometimes to keep together and obviously hard to keep an eye on all your belongings. Can be a bit hectic so keep calm and take t in your own pace.

This is the place for cheap bargains. Shops here are famous for textiles and other house hold goods. The place will always be crowded and parking is not possible in this area. A favorite of the locals, this place will not appeal to anyone visiting Chennai. If you still want to visit this place, watch your belongings.
