in the northern premises. Chennai, the capital of Tamil Nadu state
abodes a number of important places. Purasavakkam in Chennai
constitutes one of the many residential areas and as such features a
number of colonies. In a literal sense the place does not contain
any monuments or architectural wonders. However, as an integral part
of the city, the place bears the same impressions as the rest of the

scattered into various colonies. Some known places in the region
include those of T.N.H.B.(Tamil Nadu Housing Board) Colony,
A.K.Swamy Nagar, Secretariat Colony, Perumalpet and Kusapet.
