About
This tour is led by a cultural evangelist who will explain the history of these buildings as well as the fate of their masters. Chennai was an important power centre during the British rule in India. Listen to the Chennai story through the buildings built in that period. Over the 3 hours appreciate the harmony in blending of Victorian Gothic, Indo-Saracenic and Byzantine styles of architecture.
