The beach runs from near Fort St. George in the north to Besant Nagar in the south, a distance of 13 km (8.1 mi), making it the longest urban beach in the country and the world's second longest. The Marina is primarily sandy, unlike the short, rocky formations that make up the Juhu Beach in Mumbai. The average width of the beach is 300 m (980 ft) and the width at the widest stretch is 437 m (1,434 ft). Bathing and swimming at the Marina Beach are legally prohibited because of the dangers, as the undercurrent is very turbulent. It is the most crowded beach in the country and attracts about 30,000 visitors a day during weekdays and 50,000 visitors a day during the weekends and on holidays. During summer months, about 15,000 to 20,000 people visit the beach daily. In 2010, 18 per cent of the 5,000 respondents interviewed by the Tripadvisor Survey panned the beach as being dirty</p></div> <div class="clearfix text-formatted field field--name-field-map field--type-text-with-summary field--label-visually_hidden"> <div class="field__label visually-hidden">Map</div> <div class="field__item"><iframe src="https://www.google.com/maps/embed?pb=!1m18!1m12!1m3!1d31094.988090993702!2d80.26634392159649!3d13.043722361739665!2m3!1f0!2f0!3f0!3m2!1i1024!2i768!4f13.1!3m3!1m2!1s0x3a52689bb60132bb%3A0x549cf8edf62b60a!2sMarina+Beach!5e0!3m2!1sen!2sin!4v1529562705755" width="100%" height="200" frameborder="0" style="border:0" allowfullscreen></iframe></div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-external-link field--type-link field--label-visually_hidden"> <div class="field__label visually-hidden">External Link</div> <div class="field__items"> <div class="field__item"><a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marina_Beach" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Marina Beach</a></div> </div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-tags field--type-entity-reference field--label-visually_hidden"> <div class="field__label visually-hidden">Location</div> <div class="field__items"> <div class="field__item"><a href="/location/marina-beach" hreflang="en">Marina Beach</a></div> </div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-category field--type-entity-reference field--label-visually_hidden"> <div class="field__label visually-hidden">Category</div> <div class="field__items"> <div class="field__item"><a href="/nature" hreflang="en">Nature</a></div> </div> </div> Thu, 21 Jun 2018 06:14:08 +0000 admin 26 at http://chennai-in-focus.com Megamalai http://chennai-in-focus.com/megahamalai <span class="field field--name-title field--type-string field--label-hidden">Megamalai</span> <div id="flexslider-1" class="flexslider optionset-default imagestyle-flexslider-full"> <ul class="slides"> <li> <img src="/sites/default/files/styles/flexslider_full/public/2019-02/IMG_8234.jpg?itok=aiYfXhZW" width="1800" height="1350" alt="Megamalai - மேகமலை" typeof="foaf:Image" class="image-style-flexslider-full" /> <div class="flex-caption"></div> </li> <li> <img src="/sites/default/files/styles/flexslider_full/public/2019-02/IMG_8212_0.jpg?itok=vvaUzyof" width="1800" height="1350" alt="Megamalai - மேகமலை" typeof="foaf:Image" class="image-style-flexslider-full" /> <div class="flex-caption"></div> </li> <li> <img src="/sites/default/files/styles/flexslider_full/public/2019-02/IMG_8150_0.jpg?itok=FrNitT0I" width="1800" height="1350" alt="Megamalai - மேகமலை" typeof="foaf:Image" class="image-style-flexslider-full" /> <div class="flex-caption"></div> </li> </ul> </div> <span class="field field--name-uid field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden"><span lang="" about="/user/1" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="">admin</span></span> <span class="field field--name-created field--type-created field--label-hidden">Mon, 02/25/2019 - 18:16</span> <div class="clearfix text-formatted field field--name-body field--type-text-with-summary field--label-hidden field__item"><p>Meghamalai,(Tamil:மேகமலை) popularly called Highwavys Mountains is a mountain range situated in the Western Ghats in Theni district, Tamil Nadu.

Vellore district lies on the north western side and Tiruvannamalai district lies on the south eastern side of this range. About 50 miles (80 km) wide and 20 miles (32 km) long, they are bisected into eastern and western sections by the Cheyyar and Agaram rivers, tributaries of the Palar. They consist of bluish gray granites, with peaks averaging 3,600–3,800 feet (1,100–1,150 m). The hills are sparsely populated; the majority of the inhabitants are Malayali tribespeople, though other castes are also present. There are many tourist places near Javadhu Hills, e.g., the Beemanmadavu waterfalls. The Indian astronomer Vainu Bappu selected the hills as the site of the Kavalur Observatory (VBO), which began operations in 1967. The towns of Tirupattur, Vaniyambadi and Ambur of Vellore district are located on the north western side and the towns of Chengam and Polur of Tiruvannamalai district are located on the south eastern side .</p></div> <div class="clearfix text-formatted field field--name-field-map field--type-text-with-summary field--label-visually_hidden"> <div class="field__label visually-hidden">Map</div> <div class="field__item"><iframe src="https://www.google.com/maps/embed?pb=!1m18!1m12!1m3!1d7787.461795465752!2d78.88250122438296!3d12.599978814401746!2m3!1f0!2f0!3f0!3m2!1i1024!2i768!4f13.1!3m3!1m2!1s0x3bad1da10e7bb649%3A0xab39f901ac80b06f!2sJawadhu+Hills%2C+Jamunamarathur%2C+Tamil+Nadu+635703!5e0!3m2!1sen!2sin!4v1530280395058" width="100%" height="300" frameborder="0" style="border:0" allowfullscreen></iframe></div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-external-link field--type-link field--label-visually_hidden"> <div class="field__label visually-hidden">External Link</div> <div class="field__items"> <div class="field__item"><a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Javadi_Hills" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">The Javadhu Hills</a></div> </div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-tags field--type-entity-reference field--label-visually_hidden"> <div class="field__label visually-hidden">Location</div> <div class="field__items"> <div class="field__item"><a href="/taxonomy/term/285" hreflang="en">Tiruvannamalai</a></div> </div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-category field--type-entity-reference field--label-visually_hidden"> <div class="field__label visually-hidden">Category</div> <div class="field__items"> <div class="field__item"><a href="/nature" hreflang="en">Nature</a></div> <div class="field__item"><a href="/religious" hreflang="en">Religious</a></div> <div class="field__item"><a href="/sightseeing" hreflang="en">Sightseeing</a></div> <div class="field__item"><a href="/%3Fq%3Dtaxonomy/term/340" hreflang="en">Tourist Spot</a></div> </div> </div> Fri, 29 Jun 2018 13:43:45 +0000 admin 105 at http://chennai-in-focus.com Agaya Gangai http://chennai-in-focus.com/agaya-gangai-kolli-malai <span class="field field--name-title field--type-string field--label-hidden">Agaya Gangai</span> <div id="flexslider-1" class="flexslider optionset-default imagestyle-flexslider-full"> <ul class="slides"> <li> <img src="/sites/default/files/styles/flexslider_full/public/2018-06/IMG_5939.jpg?itok=bletED8a" width="1800" height="1350" alt="Agaya Gangai" typeof="foaf:Image" class="image-style-flexslider-full" /> <div class="flex-caption"></div> </li> <li> <img src="/sites/default/files/styles/flexslider_full/public/2018-06/IMG_5949.jpg?itok=qAR99NTO" width="1800" height="1350" alt="Agaya Gangai" typeof="foaf:Image" class="image-style-flexslider-full" /> <div class="flex-caption"></div> </li> <li> <img src="/sites/default/files/styles/flexslider_full/public/2018-06/IMG_5895.jpg?itok=db505rD3" width="1800" height="1350" alt="Agaya Gangai" typeof="foaf:Image" class="image-style-flexslider-full" /> <div class="flex-caption"></div> </li> <li> <img src="/sites/default/files/styles/flexslider_full/public/2018-06/IMG_5969.jpg?itok=OkQeYcyr" width="1800" height="1350" alt="Agaya Gangai" typeof="foaf:Image" class="image-style-flexslider-full" /> <div class="flex-caption"></div> </li> </ul> </div> <span class="field field--name-uid field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden"><span lang="" about="/user/1" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="">admin</span></span> <span class="field field--name-created field--type-created field--label-hidden">Fri, 06/29/2018 - 14:45</span> <div class="clearfix text-formatted field field--name-body field--type-text-with-summary field--label-hidden field__item"><p>Agaya Gangai (Tamil: ஆகாய கங்கை) waterfalls are located in Kolli Hills of the Eastern Ghats.
