Taj Connemara

Opened in 1891 at the height of the British Raj, the hotel was one of the elegant retreats of colonial India.

Today Chennai (formerly known as Madras) is the capital of the state of Tamil Nadu. It is the fourth largest metropole in India. Modern Chennai grew out of a small fishing village called Madraspatnam, when the East India Company chose the location for a new settlement way back in 1639.

Colonially elegant and infused with design touches hinting to its imperial past, the Taj Connemara, is Chennai's only heritage hotel. Situated in the heart of the city it offers the best business and leisure facilities.

Our team researches the hotel's history, from the very beginning, verifying its exact opening date and providing an overview of its history up to the present day. ?If you have any useful information, please send it to archives@famoushotels.org.? Thank you
