Anna Salai Shopping-Mount Road

This road  is almost 400 years old. It has its origins in a cart track used by the European employees of the British East India Company to travel from the factory at Fort St George to the holy town of St Thomas Mount. This is where the Apostle St Thomas was crucified.

In the following years, the road became part of the city’s central business district. Several renowned corporations have their headquarters on Mount Road- The Amalgamations Group and the TVS Group to name two. Other prominent buildings on this road include, the LIC (Life Insurance Corporation ) building and the Spencers Plaza Mall.

While Mount Road is not a typical shopping market, there are numerous shops on this road. As it is a long road, it passes through several areas in Chennai.

In the Tenaympet area of Mount Road, there are shops selling lighting fixtures and modern lights and lamps for the homes. These shops are on the main Mount Road. Near the Gemni flyover are the Vummudi jewellery showrooms. Vummudi is one of the best shop for gold, silver and diamond jewellery in Chennai.
