    [Geetham Lists]

    Seven Wonders of Tamil Nadu

    :p :p

    Okie, dear people..

    We have had plenty of discussions about the new seven wonders, or 7-W version 1.01 etc. Good or bad, agree or disagree, one good thing is to list some places that are important centers of culture and interests of tourism.

    What would be your list of 7 important places to see in Tamil Nadu?

    Let us confine this list to only man-made wonders - architectural and other such interests (that are not-worship places). We can create few more lists for Temples (and other worship places), for natural habitats, and for beachers.

    Nominate them now.. we will vote for them after a week.. Each nomination should have atleast two votes/selections for inclusion in the poll..

    Top seven will form the

    Geetham's List of 7WofTN


    ~~~~~~~~~~~


    Would be nice if you can add some photos as well. May be next time when we visit India, we could check out some of these places..

    Thanks,

    Vasan

    Chennai Central Railway Station

    Chennai Central Railway Station in Chennai is the home to the Southern Railways and the most important rail hub in South India. Trains from here connect the city to other states of India, while trains to other parts of Tamil Nadu (excluding Salem, Erode and Coimbatore) are catered to by the Chennai Egmore station. Chennai Central is the main hub for the Chennai suburban railway. The building of the railway station, one of the landmarks of Chennai, was designed by the famous architect Henry Irwin.

    This station is also noted for a whole range of amenities available within the premises. The station has book-shops, restaurants, accommodation, Internet browsing centers and even an essential commodities shopping mall. This station is completely Wi-Fi enabled. Recently, in 2005, the buildings were painted to a creamy yellow color, but concurring with the views of a campaign by citizens of Chennai and also to retain the old nostalgic charm, they were painted back to their original brick-red color, which was how the buildings were built originally.
    Chennai Central serves as a symbolic landmark for people in South India as this served as the main gateway for all people who travelled to South India during British times. Chennai Central has been greatly instrumental in earning Chennai the famous sobriquet "Gateway of the South"
