In and around Chennai: Fort St. George

January 13, 2010

I took a friend over to see Fort St. George. This was only my second visit there and the first time inside the museum’s portrait gallery. There is a Raja Ravi Varma oil immediately to the left as you enter. But its the room itself that impresses.

Just inside the museum, Cornwallis and Willingdon tower over mere mortals.

Lots of other interesting prints and models and artifacts. I may have even learned something new. I really should make an effort to go see many more of the museums and historic sites in and around Chennai.
