Overview

Explore Fort St George historically called White Town and the first English fortress in India dating back to 1644! The construction of the fort provided the impetus for further settlements and trading activity, in what was originally an uninhabited land. Thus, it is a feasible contention to say that the city evolved around the fortress.

The magnificent fort happens to be the first in many aspects in the entire era or British rule in India. The fort itself is the first British garrison settlement in India. It also houses the first British official residential complex, the Clive House which was the home of the Commander-in-chief and the orchestrator of British India, Lord Robert Clive.

St Mary's Church inside the fortress is also the oldest Anglican Church, not only in India but among all the landmasses east of Suez. The fort currently houses the Tamil Nadu legislative assembly and other official buildings.
