Fort St. George Tours

star-4
13 Reviews
Fort St. George
The British East India Company constructed their first fortress in India in 1640 along a strip of sand on lease from the Raja, allowing them a foothold for expansion in India. The 20-foot (6-meter) thick outer walls surround a complex of white colonial structures, known historically as ‘White City,’ including St Mary’s, the oldest Anglican church in Asia.

Until recently, Fort St. George housed the Tamil Nadu Secretariat & Legislative Assembly, and the Fort Museum remains open to the public and is now housed within an old East India Company exchange. The museum’s collection displays portraits, paintings, photographs, British governmental uniforms and East India Company porcelain, among other Raj relics.

Pay attention to the signage when visiting the compound, as several areas and buildings are closed to the public. If you want to avoid crowds at the security check, set aside a few hours on a Sunday morning for your visit.

Origins of Madras in Fort St. George- A heritage walkCultural Tours

Origins of Madras in Fort St. George- A heritage walk

star-5
The English ruled over the Indian subcontinent for over 3 centuries. The story of their conquest of India started here, in Fort St George. Walking through the fort is a fascinating experience. Today it is the seat of the state's democratic institutions, a partial makeover from the time when it was the seat of power of the East India company. From its beginnings as a small garrison to the imposing half decagon it is today, the fort has seen many battles, stand offs and eventually the historic raising of the Indian flag of Independence too.The fort is where some of English colonial history's most influential generals started their careers and their families. From Napoleon to Tipu Sultan, Fort St George has a long list of connections to some of world history's most recognizable names. Walk with us to understand life in the fort many centuries ago, the people who built the English empire and its transition into what it is today.
