It lies in Villupuram District, 160 kilometres (99 mi) from the state capital, Chennai, and is close to the Union Territory of Puducherry. The fort is so fortified, that Shivaji, the Maratha king, ranked it as the "most impregnable fortress in India" and it was called the "Troy of the East" by the British. The nearest town with a railway station is Tindivanam and the nearest airport is Chennai (Madras), located 150 kilometres (93 mi) away.</p> <p>Originally the site of a small fort built by the kings of konar dynasty and maintained by Chola dynasty in 9th century AD, it was later modified by the Vijayanagar empire in the 13th century to elevate it to the status of an unbreachable citadel to protect the small town of Gingee. It was also the headquarters of the Gingee Nayaks, during the Nayak domination in northern Tamil Nadu. The fort was built as a strategic place of fending off any invading armies. As per one account, the fort was built during the 15–16th century by the Nayaks of Gingee, the lieutenants of the Vijayanagara Empire and who later became independent kings (Nayaks of Gingee ). The fort passed to the Marathas under the leadership of Shivaji in 1677 AD, Bijapur sultans, the Moghuls, Carnatic Nawabs, French and the British in 1761. The fort is closely associated with Raja Tej Singh, who unsuccessfully revolted against the Nawab of Arcot and eventually lost his life in a battle.</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!1d3898.976496352388!2d79.39567679891712!3d12.249869741009046!2m3!1f0!2f0!3f0!3m2!1i1024!2i768!4f13.1!3m3!1m2!1s0x3a53351449197217%3A0x80e8271e44475041!2sGingee+Fort!5e0!3m2!1sen!2sin!4v1552503262975" 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="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gingee_Fort" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Gingee Fort</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="/viluppuram" hreflang="en">Viluppuram</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="/category/architecture" hreflang="en">Architecture</a></div> <div class="field__item"><a href="/education" hreflang="en">Education</a></div> <div class="field__item"><a href="/taxonomy/term/329/0" hreflang="en">Monument</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> Wed, 13 Mar 2019 18:25:58 +0000 admin 151 at http://chennai-in-focus.com Maharaja Palace http://chennai-in-focus.com/chettinad-palace <span class="field field--name-title field--type-string field--label-hidden">Maharaja Palace</span> <div id="flexslider-2" class="flexslider optionset-default imagestyle-flexslider-full"> <ul class="slides"> <li> <img src="/sites/default/files/styles/flexslider_full/public/2018-06/IMG_4750.jpg?itok=znCuPeLz" width="1800" height="1350" alt="Chettinad Palace" 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_4746.jpg?itok=J4LjJfjr" width="1800" height="1350" alt="Chettinad Palace" 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_4800.jpg?itok=wVJK_YdF" width="1800" height="1350" alt="Chettinad Palace" 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_4802.jpg?itok=5cvIrQKx" width="1800" height="1350" alt="Chettinad Palace" 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_4803.jpg?itok=ItW8BwTn" width="1800" height="1350" alt="Chettinad Palace" 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_4813.jpg?itok=AyyqJCBN" width="1800" height="1350" alt="Chettinad Palace" 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 - 18:42</span> <div class="clearfix text-formatted field field--name-body field--type-text-with-summary field--label-hidden field__item"><p>The 110-year-old Chettinad Palace is an outstanding example of Chettinad architecture.

This is a fine example of Indo-Saracenic style of architecture, a combination of three types of architectural styles - Gothic, Ionic and Corinthian. The Ripon Building is white in colour and is located near the Central station in Chennai. Commissioned in 1913, it was built by Loganatha Mudaliar. The Building took four years to build at a cost of 750,000 Rupees. Ripon building was named after Lord Ripon, Governor-General of British India and the Father of local self-government. Earl of Minto, the then Viceroy and Governor General of India laid the foundation on December 12, 1909. The Municipal Corporation of Madras, after functioning from several other places, settled at Ripon building in 1913, with P.L. Moore as the President of the Municipal Corporation at the time of the inauguration.</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"></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/Ripon_Building" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Ripon Building</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="/anna-salai-mount-road" hreflang="en">Anna Salai (Mount Road)</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="/category/architecture" hreflang="en">Architecture</a></div> </div> </div> Thu, 28 Jun 2018 10:02:29 +0000 admin 90 at http://chennai-in-focus.com Museum Chennai http://chennai-in-focus.com/museum <span class="field field--name-title field--type-string field--label-hidden">Museum Chennai</span> <div id="flexslider-4" class="flexslider optionset-default imagestyle-flexslider-full"> <ul class="slides"> <li> <img src="/sites/default/files/styles/flexslider_full/public/2018-06/_MG_0115-001.jpg?itok=22sy5WvY" width="1800" height="1350" alt="Chennai In Focus - Government Museum | Chennai Museum" 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/_MG_0034.jpg?itok=60zdkDv4" width="1800" height="1350" alt="Chennai In Focus - Government Museum | Chennai Museum" 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">Thu, 06/28/2018 - 15:08</span> <div class="clearfix text-formatted field field--name-body field--type-text-with-summary field--label-hidden field__item"><p>Government Museum, established in 1851, is located in Egmore, Chennai.
