It is a cosmopolitan city with people belonging to different religious groups living together. Chennai is located on India’s southeastern coast and is marked by scenic, bustling beaches. Historically, the area was popular with seafarers, spice traders and cloth merchants.

Chennai is a mix of the old and new—stately colonial structures are juxtaposed with modern high rises.
