The chapter on Chennai:

Chennai (formerly Madras) is the sixth largest Indian city (as of 2011) – with nearly 4.7 million inhabitants. Owing to its colonial past, Chennai has a number of historical, picture-perfect buildings – sure to get cameras clicking. Aside from tourism, Chennai is also a center of education, culture, commerce (Chennai has India’s second largest port) and film, as the city produces a number of Tamil-language films.
