About Egmore

Rising on the banks of Coovum River, Egmore is one of the commercial hubs of Chennai. A haven for shopaholics, the area, has many shopping plazas, department stores, and handicraft emporiums. It also has a flea market that is set up on the footpaths during the afternoons. These vendors offer vibrant fabrics and dazzling accessories at very cheap rates. But, brushing up your bargaining skills before you approach these stalls would be a good idea. Egmore also has several large shopping malls containing stores of many popular brands. There are also many pearl and gold jewelry showrooms here that make it a must-visit place for the female population of Chennai. Egmore also has co-operative society stores selling authentic Kancheepuram sarees at discount rates. It also has many restaurants and food joints where the weary shoppers can recharge their lagging energy levels, after a hectic shopping.

Historical Context: Egmore was the administrative headquarters of the ancient kingdom of Tamil Nadu under the Chola kings. The place underwent much progress under the British, especially after the Sepoy Mutiny of 1857. The establishment of the Egmore Museum, the Connemara Library and the Egmore Railway Station sealed this area’s destiny as an important commercial and transport hub of Chennai.
