For the poem by Vijay Nambisan, see Madras Central (poem).</p> <p>Chennai Central Railway Station, (officially Puratchi Thalaivar Dr. M.G. Ramachandran Central Railway Station), formerly known as Madras Central (station code: MAS), is the main railway terminus in the city of Chennai, Tamil Nadu, India. It is the busiest railway station in South India and one of the most important hubs in the country. It is connected to Moore Market Complex railway station, Chennai Central metro station, Chennai Park railway station, Park Town railway station and is 2 km from Chennai Egmore railway station. The terminus connects the city to all northern cities of India, including Kolkata, Mumbai and New Delhi.</p> <p>The century-old building of the railway station, designed by architect George Harding, is one of the most prominent landmarks of Chennai. The station is also a main hub for the Chennai Suburban Railway system. It lies adjacent to the current headquarters of the Southern Railway and the Ripon Building. During the British Raj, the station served as the gateway to South India, and the station is still used as a landmark for the city and the state.</p> <p>The station was renamed twice, from Madras Central to Chennai Central in 1996, to reflect the name change of the city of Madras to Chennai, and then to Puratchi Thalaivar Dr. M. G. Ramachandran Central railway station in 2019, after the late Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu.</p> <p>About 550,000 passengers use the terminus every day, making it the busiest railway station in South India. Along with Chennai Egmore, Coimbatore Junction, and Karur Junction, the Central terminus is among the most profitable stations of Southern Railways. As per a report published in 2007 by the Indian Railways, Chennai Central and Secunderabad were awarded 183 points out of a maximum of 300 for cleanliness, the highest in the country.</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!1d3886.268083826388!2d80.27331961482317!3d13.08218879078339!2m3!1f0!2f0!3f0!3m2!1i1024!2i768!4f13.1!3m3!1m2!1s0x3a5266000af86837%3A0xb82ae0604cf7ec4d!2sChennai+Central!5e0!3m2!1sen!2sin!4v1529232245931" 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/Puratchi_Thalaivar_Dr._M.G._Ramachandran_Central_Railway_Station" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Chennai Central Railway Station</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/central-station" hreflang="en">Central Station / Madras Central</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="/transportation" hreflang="en">Transportation</a></div> </div> </div> Sun, 17 Jun 2018 10:35:46 +0000 admin 7 at http://chennai-in-focus.com
