The climate of Chennai (India)
Chennai is to most people better known as Madras. It is the fifth largest town of India. Nevertheless the town makes a much quieter and more relaxed impression than for instance Bangalore. The town was founded around the British fortress St. George which was built here on the coast to protect the commercial interests of the British East Indian Company. To most people Chennai (Madras) is a stopover on their journey elsewhere. Still Chennai is also worth visiting. The town is an important centre for music and culture in India and is known for its shows in Hindoe temples. Every year a big festival is held with mainly singing and dancing. It is pleasant walking about on the marketplace of Georgetown and also a visit to the Marina beach is worth while.
Chennai has a tropical climate. The situation on the coast causes few big differences in temperature in the town. The rain season is from July up to and including December. Then most rain falls in November.
