Twenty8th Chennai Photowalk

March 2, 2010

The 28th Chennai Photowalk & its announcement …

The past photowalks have concentrated in and around Parry’s corner or Broadway areas of North Madras. This walk we will head further into the so called black town areas of Washermanpet and Royapuram.

The walk will begin at the start of West Madha Church Street just outside the entry to Royapuram Railway station, where one of the earliest photowalks ended, and then proceed down that road. Madha Church Street and Arathoon Road were the areas where the Parsi community, yes the dwindling fire worshippers of Madras lived. West Madha Church has the only existing fire temple in the city, apart from its name sake Madha Church. At the end of the road is a single screen theatre, and then the walk heads to Arathoon road, which was the where the Parsi’s in Chennai lived. Both these streets do not look like the typical Royapuram/Tondiarpet areas and starkly different with their Parsi roots very evident. Before ending the walk at the Royapuram Market.

Date of the walk: 14th March 2010

Place: West Madha Chruch road Begening (Outside entrance to Royapuram Station on West Madha Church Road)

Time: The usual 7 am.

And for those who are scratching their heads after reading the route, here is the map.
