Chennai (formerly Madras) is the capital of the Indian state of Tamil Nadu. A coastal metropolis, Chennai has recently received a surge of investments by multinational companies. Chennai has some of the best medical care and educational facilities in India. Chennai's Marina Beach is supposedly the second longest in the world. The city has several luxury hotels to cater to the growing business community. Chennai previously had only a few multistoried buildings. However a boom in construction has led to plenty of buildings of 10 stories and above.
