This memorial of Arignar Anna, the former Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu is located near the Marina Beach. Adjacent to it is the MGR Memorial. This place is pleasant to look at in the evening, but in the day it will be difficult to look around in the scorching sun.

Normally we do pay a visit to Anna Memorial whenever we go to Marina beach. This is built in in memory of former Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Anna Durai who was cremated here. This beautiful monument is on the northern end of the Marina just next to the MGR Memorial.

Awe-inspiring and architecturally-imposing monuments can be found littered around the park. With the connecting MGR Memorial, both serve as good place to visit for the weekend.

There is nothing much to do or see here and the ones that generally visit this place are the curious ones who have heard of the person buried here. For the visitor, unless you have time... More
