Heritage Walk-Fort St.George: On Saturday.
A friend of mine, Harini is organizing a Heritage walk in Fort St. George, it being one of the oldest monuments here in the city.
Inspired by one of Mr.S.Muthiah’s lecture on Madras, the plan is to organize a walk around Fort.St.George, one of the earliest symbols of the British era in India. She has been in touch with Dr. Suresh, an eminent archaeologist in Chennai and he has agreed to guide a small group (minimum 15 people) on this walk around the fort.
This walk is organized usually on a saturday or sunday and permission for the group is required since the building is used as the secretariat by the TN Government. The walk will start at 7am in the morning and end by 10 am max…depending on walking speed of the group etc.
Tentatively the dates are march 1 or march 8 (saturday). Those interested in joining for this walk are requested to get back to her by the 25th of Feb so that she can start the planning.
