Det skal I lave

We start the heritage walk at Chennai's iconic marina beach. We will be exploring the history and architecture along the promenade. Some of India's oldest colonial era institutions line this stretch, built in a curiously eclectic and unique 'Indo-saracenic' style of architecture. We will be visiting these buildings and talking to the people who are in charge of their restoration and maintenance. We will visit the site of a traditional method of producing 'lime mortar' where two buffaloes are employed to crush soft stone and make a fine powder which was for many centuries, the pre-cursor to modern day cement concrete. We will go inside a 250 year old building undergoing extensive restoration and talk to the experts who are using local material knowledge to carefully restore it to its former glory. Some of the fine architecture we will be looking at during this walk includes: -Presidency College: A 200 year old institution and the earliest example of the Indo-Saracenic style -Kalas Mahal: The former court of the 'Nawab' of Arcot who ruled the city in the 18th century -Senate House: The pinnacle of the Indo-Saracenic architecture style is used for the graduation ceremony of students from Madras University, another grand old institution with 3 Nobel Laureates to its name. This a walk filled with rich stories and rare access to prestigious landmarks in Chennai city!

I founded 'Madras Inherited', a heritage initiative that wants to celebrate and protect the heritage of Chennai city. As a qualified historian and conservation architect, I love taking people to see the offbeat parts of my city. I have hosted more than 75 themed and curated heritage walks over a period of 3 years for locals and tourists alike. Exploring Indian cities can seem daunting and a lot of the best kept secrets are hidden away in streets, markets and alleys that can be intimidating to any body not accustomed to the incessant chaos and overwhelming energy. Walking with a local expert like myself helps to solve these riddles and make sense of the communities, customs, traditions and neighborhoods in Chennai.
