    This was established by Britain in 19th century and its architecture still depicts that era. The building is old and you need a proper valid ID card to visit this place.

    Raj Bhavan is the official residence of the Governor and is an absolute nature trail.

    We were pleasantly surprised to know that we could visit the place; a friend helped reserve for both families - it is online and friendly

    And the kids enjoyed and learnt..

    It is a paid trip nominal charge and entertaining to the core

    Chennai means two things will come to mind for locals as well as visitors. One is Marina beach and the second is LIC building (excluding the temples in Chennai). This 15 storey building is located on Anna salai (Mount Road) and houses Life Insurance Corporation, Govt of Inda office. It is the first skyscraper built in Chennai and until the last decade, it was the tallest building in Chennai. Infact, LIC Building was the tallest building in India when it was inaugurated five decade back and was later surpassed by Mumbai's first skyscraper building.

    If you travel from South Tamilnadu to Chennai or back, this building can be seen. There are too many tallest buildings have come up in Chennai. these days. Yet, the iconic name LIC remains in mind. Since it houses an govt LIC office, it is not attraction to enter inside.
