The style of the building is multiethnic, a hodgepodge of styles. At this time, for work of the metro, it is difficult to even make photos, because of the gendarmes that imoediscono lavvicinamento.

  • It is located at Chennai Central. Well connected by public transport system. A big building with several wings. I visited the Adhaar enrollment center here. Got little bit problem to locate the center due to language problem. All replied my Hindi or English enquiries in local language only. Inside the center also I found the same problem.
  • Great Building .. Near to Chennai Central trail way station One of the most oldest building in Chennai . Now the Ripon is Change to Chennai Corporation office An annexe building is located to the rear of the main building, which was renamed 'Amma Maaligai' in August 2014. All departments of the Chennai Corporation, except the offices of the Mayor and Commissioner, function from the annexe building.

The building has been designed in a post-modern style, with some elements of traditional architecture. Some design elements would suit the colonial-style architecture of the Ripon Buildings.
  • A very historical place. Well constructed Amma Maaligai and historical Ripon building. Feel like we are entering into the White House of Chennai!
  • Be aware of thefts pic pocketing. In the morning and in the night when the crowd is full and in rush. Don’t leave your belongings.
