George Town/Parry’s Corner
George Town is one of the busiest and most commercial neighbourhoods of Chennai. It may not boast of pubs or restaurants, but it surely offers something that the rest of Chennai can’t - a strong whiff of history. This historical area located in north Chennai is where the city of Madras was officially born in 1640 alongside Fort St. George. A walk here leads you to
the well-established specialised bazaars and wholesale markets selling everything under the sun: fabrics, fruits, vegetables, spices, fabrics, camera, perfumes, jewellery, etc. Home to the High Court and other State institutions and famous for a large resident Sindhi and Marwari community, George Town is a rich congregation of shrines of different faiths within its boundaries – from Hindu and Jain temples to churches, mosques and synagogue. If you are craving some authentic North Indian food, head to streets of Sowcarpet for chaat, vada pav and other popular street snacks.
