Chennai Central Station formerly known as Madras Central Station is the main railway terminus in Chennai (Madras). It is located in the northern part of Chennai. It is the home of the southern Railway and the most important rail hub in South India. Trains from here connect the city to New Delhi and prominent state capitals of India like Bhopal, Lucknow, Jaipur, Mumbai, Patna, Kolkata, Bangalore, Thiruvananthapuram etc. The building of the railway station, one of the landmarks of Chennai, was designed by the architect Henry Irwin. In 2005, the buildings were painted a creamy yellow colour, but concurring with the views of a campaign by the citizens of Chennai and also to retain the old nostalgic charm, they were repainted in their original brick-red color, which was how the buildings were built originally.
