Old structure with defective lifts and escalators, most of the shops have closed down and brand shops are shifted to Express Mall. Avoidable place.

In old days its the only shopping mall and a landmark place around it. Now its lost its crowd, one good bar inside it and can get good bread omlets from a small shop.

Eight years after my last visit, I popped in on a Friday late morning en route to the Victoria Technical Institute. Was my memory playing tricks with me, I asked myself as I wandered lonely as a cloud around, passing many, too many, empty shops. Shops sell a wide and often nice selection of the usual fare of shawls, jewellery,... More

We went here but not much was open, but this could have been because of the currency difficulties. Beware of the roads they are very difficult to cross, due to heavy traffic and crazy driving.

One of the oldest shopping malls of chennai. It has lost its charm by a greater extent and seeing lots of business establishments closed down their operations. But it's still the place for lots of youngsters to hang out . Keep going .

This is the oldest mall in india which was built during Britisher's time. I went there to have food in Sarvana Bhawan which offered tasty food. Nice, old decor of mall but looks interesting to visit oldest mall.
