Colonial Madras – Lighthouse to War Memorial
90 mins – Walk
This trail traces the story of the arrival of the British to India. Why did they come to this faraway land? How did they deal with other colonial powers that got here before them? How did they go from being mere traders to ruling over almost the entire subcontinent? What was their life like in Madras? How did they deal with local religion? And how did India end up making their language its very own? We’ll talk about all these as we pass by fine British-era buildings that have many tales to tell.
This walk starts from the Light House and ends at the War Memorial.
