Less is a bore-Robert Venturi

Rajah Sir Ramasamy Mudaliar Choultry

“One of the great beauties of architecture is that each time, it is like life starting all over again” Renzo Piano

The above building was constructed in the year 1888.

The architecture is known by the name Indo-Saracenic Architecture, which is a combination of Gothic architecture with Mughal and Hindu designs.

“Good architecture is like a good therapy session, a good marriage, a good poem – gently and almost invisibly allowing you to be you, as flawed and as beautiful as you are.”

Robert Sullivan

It’s situated opposite Chennai Central Railway Station, Chennai, Tamil Nadu, south India.

The building was constructed as a choultry by Sir Ramasamy Mudaliar for the benefit of Railway passengers.

Metrorail has taken over this building and promised to convert the heritage building into a Metro Rail Museum.

Thank you for your visit.

Take care, my friend.

  1. This building reminds me of the Centennial Museum in Washington, DC. It’s part of the Smithsonian complex of museums on the Mall. It was built in the late-19th Century when architecture really started to get interesting.
