TRIPLICANE

Triplicane situated about a half km from the Bay of Bengal coast and Fort St George, is one of the oldest central business districts of Madras (Chennai), South India. Triplicane owes its name to its Puranic existence as Tiruvallikeni or Tiru-Alli-Keni (Sacred Lily Pond in Tamil) denoting the pond in front of the famous Parthasarathy Temple located there. The place was also referred to as Vrundha-raNyam (beautiful garden) in Puranic scriptures.
