The Chepauk Palace
Hunting hard for a topic to blog about, I decided I would do what I like doing best. Take a ride. So, on a clear Sunday morning, I set out to the beach. And before I hit the beach, I saw this…
The Chepauk palace. A once brilliant palace built in the Indo Saracenic style. A style pioneered in Madras. A style pioneered by Robert Chisholm.

The Chepauk palace is pretty much where the British Raj started off. Details and the history, soon.
