Chennai Port or Madras Port – the 2nd largest and one of the oldest ports in India (as early as 1600), is a place i have been wanting to visit for a long long time. The huge merchant ships, navy ships, cargo containers, massive equipment, yachts, boats and of course the Bay of Bengal. These sights and sounds make you feel that more closer to Chennai/Madras and remind you why Chennai/Madras was and still is one of the most important port towns in the country!
I was lucky to travel a short distance on a yacht and take in the breeze and smell of the strong seas and the sights of the Chennai Port up close (despite my terrible sea sickness!). Click on of the snaps below – it was an amazing evening, overcast weather accompanied by heavy rain over the sea!
(P.S – i even saw the recently commissioned patrolling vessel INS Sumitra ! No photos of course, i am a responsible Indian citizen)
