I love my city because: Chennai is the capital city of the state of Tamil Nadu. The history of the state and the city goes far beyond 4000 years of civilization, culture, literature, arts. Various powerful kings and dynasties have ruled over this region and left their fabulous imprint on civilization, culture and monuments. Then came the wave of Europeans -- the Portugese, Dutch, French, British... and yes they left their imprint as well. Where else in the world can you see wonderful thousand-year old hindu temples sprinked around the city co-existing with British era buildings, monuments ?

I have travelled to: All over USA ( 20+ states ) ; Europe ( Austria, Czech, Finland, France, Hungary, Poland, Slovakia ) ; Peru ; Cambodia.
