Virtual Photowalk for children – Aug. 22, 2021

Walk along the Veteran Lines!

Pallavaram (originally Pallavapuram, [பல்லவபுரம்]) derives its name from Pallava dynasty settlement during the 7th century by Pallava king Mahendravarman. Pallavaram is considered to be one of the oldest inhabited places dating back to the Paleolithic Age.

Pallavaram has also an interesting history of Anglo-Indians, who settled in a vast area called Veteran Lines.

Was this neighbourhood created for World War II veterans? Or got its name from the company, European Artillery Veterans that operated from the area? Whatever be the origin of the name, the beautiful houses, their porticos, roofs, arched windows, sprawling gardens, the place reflects facets of British architecture.

Walk around and view some of the unique features of Veteran Lines, virtually.

Virtual Photowalk organised by
N. Ramaswamy, who publishes a photo every day at and is an avid photowalker, will lead the walk.

Time: 4 p.m. to 5 p.m.
Date: Sunday, Aug. 22, 2021

Open to children of ages 8 upwards.
