The River Cooum

Welcome

The Cooum river though now a byword for "nauseous drain", both sustains the city of Chennai and represents a wide swathe of its history.

A port, a fort, a university, palaces, graves of the common men and saints, museums, 1500 year old temples, one of the oldest scientific astronomical observatories all on its banks.

Mapping it before its too late is vital.
