Madras Day Walks – 2016

August 8, 2016

Madras Day Walk #1 (RETROWALK #32) – WALK BY THE VILLAGE ROAD – NUNGAMBAKKAM

In the not-so-distant past, Valluvarkottam High Road was called Village Road. For much of its length, it runs along the old village of Nungambakkam. Of that village there is no trace until you come to a small Shiva temple with a large tank fronting it. Standing there, it is just about possible to imagine Nungambakkam’s rural past.

So welcoming the madras week ahead, we shall start at Valluvar Kottam and walk down Village road into the crowded, colourful and pretty ancient Nungambakkam Market. We will end the walk at the corner of Village Road and Nungambakkam High Road.

Major Attractions :

1. Valluvar Kottam

2. Agatheeswarar Temple & the tank

3. Commercial Area’s of Nungambakkam

4. Independance Day Park
