They are the valuable features of tourism in southern India that is appreciated by maximum number of tourists including foreigners. It depicts the multi-dimensional background of India. Chennai being the important part of this dimension have some great tourist spots that are loved by number of visitors travelling to Chennai for business or pleasure purpose. It too has some historical sites to be observed with great interest. Amir Mahal Chennai is a historical monument which has a great bygone background.
To establish directorial offices of British India Company it was constructed in the year of 1978 by the Company itself. It is built as massive architectural structure and is counted as the historical landmark of Chennai. My eyes were constantly gazing at the huge mansion and it was a feeling of pride for the nation that it houses such historical monuments in its various states. Its origin is related to titular Nawab of Arcot who used to reside here with his family. The location is really peaceful and it narrates the lifestyle of the Nawab as a ruler. The palace is spread across 14 acre of the land and is around 300 years old. It was the abode of His Highness Nawab Mohammad Abdul Ali Azim Jah since his existence from 1867 AD. I was astonished to know that the palace is presently the house of eighth Prince of Arcot in accession and has nearly 600 members including family, servants, staffs and their respective families. After the death of last Nawab of Carnatic the palace was owned by the Government and it provided the same to the paternal uncle of Prince Azeem Shah, the Prince of Arcot.
It was a great experience to know the vast history of the Amir Mahal Chennai and its ancient rulers. The history simply mesmerized me with its glory and grand rulers. India is bagged with so many historical events and incidents that it’s impossible to know about the entire journey of India from prehistoric era to recent period. Being flocked with so many ancient stories I left the place to visit another historical site of Chennai.

The sunset at this place is worth experiencing.
My journey to Chennai was taking new moulds each time when I was moving to the places I wanted to observe since my younger days and it had all the colours of travelling. The Government Museum Chennai was among those places of interest that gave me the combination of delightful journey with bulk of historical knowledge. The museum is the choice of large number of tourists as it keeps them embedded with the culture and customs of southern India and its historical past.
Spread in 16.25 acres of land the museum is located in the heart of the city named Egmore on Patheon Road, with great dignity. It houses around 46 galleries of its exhibits and various displays. It was introduced in 1851 and ranks second oldest after Indian Museum in Kolkata and treasures some premium masterpieces of anthropology, archaeology, art, numismatics and many others as an opulent repository in southern India. It is reckoned among the South Asia’s largest museums with six sovereign buildings that consist of 46 galleries including Children’s Museum, Bronze Gallery, Contemporary Art Gallery, Main building, National Art Gallery and Front Building.
Among the six of them I was able to witness only four of them which are amazing in their own terms. They were National Art Gallery, Contemporary Art Gallery, Bronze Gallery and the Main Building. They are some of the important galleries that comprise of unlimited relics and specimens of the past glorious history of India. Main building consist of sculptures, philately and botany galleries accompanied with animal galleries. Front building has an interesting part of puppet gallery to display the folk art and traditional music which was left by me. While the National Art Gallery houses some brilliant pieces and paintings of the artistic prodigies. Evolvement of art and its origin can be easily observed in the Contemporary Art Gallery which I liked the most.
Since I did not have enough time to witness the entire museum, I checked some of the suggested galleries by my cousin. I had a great time seeing the Government Museum Chennai and wanted to catch up some more interesting places of Chennai. I came out of Museum to have some playful time at the beach of Chennai.
