I feel,Parks are a gift to mankind.With the present day trend of the concrete jungle all around parks are such a welcome change whew one can just go sit & enjoy the serene atmosphere or walk or read a book and get some fresh oxygen away from all the traffic congestion and hustle and bustle of a busy city.
Panagal Park is a park and a locality in T Nagar, Chennai.Now a little history about this park :
The park is named after the Raja of Panagal, the Chief Minister of Madras Presidency who created the park. It is an important junction and is the commercial centre of T Nagar.When the Long Lake on the western peripheral region of the old city was drained out and the area of T. Nagar was newly carved out of the existing neighborhood of Mambalam in 1923, a park was developed in the centre of the new locality intended to be a residential one. The park was named Panagal Park honouring the then Chief Minister of Madras, the Raja of Panagal.In the early days, there was a public radio inside the park to cater the visitors who gathered there to listen to music and news and stayed till the last news broadcast at 7.15 p.m.
The architect of Panagal Park was Ganesh Iyer. Interesting history isn’t it ?

This is bang in the middle of a shopping area which is croded throught a day irrespective of time. It is fairly large with one end facing Pondy Bazaar and the other Usman Road. The kind of vegetation provides a cool zone in a city known to have just three seasons a year, namely hot, hotter and hottest. Nice place which keeps the dust and heat away and gives a cool and healthy shade where you can spend quiet evenings in spite of the melee around.

I've been to Chennai multiple times since I was a kid. All the time we go to T. Nagar when we need to do shopping. This time, when my parents went shopping, I decided to curiously explore Panagal Park which is right across Kumaran Silks and Nalli. Impressions of this park are amazing. It's very convenient to walk around, you have a lot of lush greenery and generally you can sit and hang out at. The weather was lightly humid but very comfortable for doing all those things. Had it been extremely humid, it's not very ideal unless you're used to that kind of weather.

Good for morning walks. The park was once in a dilapidated condition, but is maintained very well now. If you visit the park during mid-day, dont miss putting the mehendi on ur hands by the skilled guys outside the park, for a very nominal charge. :)

Panagal Park is one of the old park in Chennai. It is situated in T.Nagar near Pothys and exact opposite to Pondy Bazzar road. It is a nice relaxing place in a busy area.

It was an unexpected visit here with my photowalk friends. We were looking for a place to visit for some nature, texture and macro photography. I suggested this place which si smack bang in the centre of the city. I was not expecting much at all from this walk in terms of good pictures.
But to my surprise it was an amazing experience and I will sure visit this place once again. Lot of people jogging, walking, doing yoga and some also just chilling before the sun gets too hot.
There is ample parking for bikes and cars and no ticket to park or enter.
Instrumental Music was being played to to calm people even more and give a nice feel to the whole park. There is a public toilet as well for male and female and is kept quite clean.
We did get some nice pictures of plants, insects and also textures.
I recommend a visit to this park at any time of the year early in the morning and also post 430pm once the afternoon sun is down. There is however plenty of shade and also a kids play area.
10 on 10 for this attraction and also hats off to Tamil Nadu Government. We need more of these in Chennai.
