Prakasam Salai


Opposite Parry's Corner, one of the Chennai milestones built in 1795, it is an impressive stylish building in Indo-Saracenic style with grandeur in red bricks. Prakasam Salai, earlier known as Popham's Broadway, a distance off George Town, has a cluster of old shrines that include Kandaswamy Koil, Tucker's Church, a Wesleyan Chapel and the Anderson's Church. The architectural marvelous and archeological values are appreciated here. This has grown to a hot spot for tourism.
