  • Natural garden in the centre of the city.. nice place to relax. But maintained very poor
  • Very nice historical place. But maintenance was very very poor. Need good maintenance.
  • Built with details by the then Chief Minister M Karunanidhi. But before the inagural date, his Government was dismissed by the then central government. A great Tribute to Tamil culture in the Chennai and a tourist attraction
