How did TASMAC come to Tamil Nadu

Chennai

With 4.7 million inhabitants, Chennai is the fifth largest city in India. The capital of the state of Tamil Nadu was formerly called Madras. The actual city center is more than 2000 years old. After India gained independence in 1947, the city grew rapidly, but the older sights in the center were retained. Chennai is a very lively metropolis that has kept the balance between modernity and tradition. The former villages of Mylapore, Triplicane, Ezhambur (Egmore) with their historical past are all part of Chennai today. There are long sandy beaches, parks, historical sights and a good tourist infrastructure. The Cooum River divides the city in half and the Adyar River divides the southern half of the city in two. The historic Buckingham Canal runs almost parallel to the coast for almost the entire length of the city. At over 10 km in length, Chennais Marina Beach is the second longest sandy beach in the world.
