Faces and Phases of Chintadripet
Originally a village developed for weavers, with streets laid out without any social distinction, the planning of Chintadripet was way ahead of its time. It played a vital role in the East India Company's trade in cloth and thrived under the support and encouragement of the Britishers. Beyond that, Chintadripet was home to individuals and communities who have shaped the locality and its development.
Today, Chintadripet is popular for its fish market, its fascinating history lost in the past. The remnants of its bygone era can be found in the old houses, age-old markets, traditional businesses, educational and religious institutions, and its residents.
