Geography of Chennai

Chennai, sometimes referred to as the "Gateway to South India,"[13][47] is located on the south–eastern coast of India in the north–eastern part of Tamil Nadu on a flat coastal plain known as the Eastern Coastal Plains. Its average elevation is around 6.7 metres (22 ft),[48] and its highest point is 60 m (200 ft).[49] Two major rivers meander through Chennai, the Cooum River (or Koovam) through the centre. Wikipedia
