Chennai has several emporia along the famous Mount Road (popularly referred to as Anna Salai), which runs North to South at a length of about 8 kms which offers a range of products, Hotels, Restaurants and a feast of glittering showrooms.

Previously known as Mardas, it is the capital of Tamil Nadu which lies on the South Eastern tip of India. Towards the East is the Port which opens out to the Bay of Bengal. The old city lies adjacent to the port and within a Km. From the Railway Station. The residents of the old city are mostly Marwaris originally from the State of Rajasthan and Gujaratis who are known to has trade in their blood. This part of the city therefore is also known as Sowcar Pet.

About 7 kms to the North West lies the Anna Nagar  where the up markets brands are available and no bargaining is necessary since all goods are sold as per the price lists of the manufacturers.

3 kms from the Station towards the west lies Egmore, an upcoming upmarket shopping area mostly housing Shopping Plazas and Department Stores.
