It is the central point for the British to handle official administration. Now the big building was under the control of the Tamil Nadu government. The legislative assembly comprises the secretariat, chief minister office, home ministry, and treasury of the state. It is open to the public for a specific area.

The museum and Wellesley house displays the many items belonging to the period of English rule. The flagstaff, made of teakwood on the pavement of the building, is the tallest in the country.

Thousand lights Mosque

More than many temples, the astonishing architecture of the Thousand lights Mosque attracts people. It is one of the largest mosques in the country. It got the name “Thousand lights” because a total of thousand oil lamps are required to light up the centre hall of the mosque. It is majestic with its tall pillars and high construction. The area around the mosque got the same name due to its popularity. The wide-long domes give considerable space to the prayer to god. According to the community, a unique hall is allocated only for women to pray in towering places.

Guindy National Park

When all things are historical, calm and majestic, the tour becomes boring. To add fire to the tyre, Guindy National park comes in the middle.

Located near the official residence of the governor of Tamil Nadu, it extends to the governor’s estate, surrounded by beautiful forest and lakes. It is the home of numerous vertebrates, invertebrates, mammals and birds. It also has a children's park where many birds and harmless animals like deers, peacocks, ducks and monkeys stay.
