    Posted: 23-Sep-2008 at 5:42pm
Joggers at dawn ... Fishing boats   putting out to sea ... Family groups dipping their feet in the waves every   evening ... Children squealing with delight as they ride horseback ... the swirling beam   of the lighthouse at night ... Lantern-lit shops selling trinkets, shells and   fast-food ... and the soft splash of sea waves. That is what makes Marina beach more than a mere reprieve from the city's heat.

Between the beach and the road is a promenade created by Governor Grant-Duff, who gave Marina its name in 1884. A series of statues   line the promenade. The most impressive of these being the Triumph of Labour by Debiprasad Roy Choudhry.

Also on the promenade are memorials to former Chief Ministers of the State - Annadurai and M G Ramachandran.

On the other side of the road is the familiar   Chennai skyline - Senate House of Madras University, Chepauk Palace,   Presidency College and Vivekananda Illam (Vivekananda House).

Despite being one of the longest beaches in the world, Marina does   tend to get crowded on weekends and public holidays.
