When the city celebrated its founding day on Aug.22 this year, there was a special event to mark this occasion.
In order to provide an opportunity for people, especially those who do not reside here anymore, a web-cam image was put out live via the internet.

The camera was located on Marina Beach from 0630 hrs onwards, for two hours.

Then, from about 0830hrs onwards, it was focussed on the views around Sri Kapali Temple, Mylapore. The cam provided views of the Mada Streets, the temple gopuram, the temple tank, and all the buzz around it.

This view was available till about 1600 hrs. Thereafter, the camera moved back to the Marina Beach to capture the evening scene from 1630hrs to about dusk.

Yet another special on the occasion of Madras Day 2006.
