Nanmangalam Reserve Forest

Quote:
Nanmangalam Reserve Forest is a protected area located in the southern part of Chennai, about 24 km from the city centre. It is located at Medavakkam on Velachery High Road between Velachery and Tambaram. The reserve forest has an area of 320 hectares. However, the total area of the forest is 2,400 hectares.[1]
Red-wattled lapwing

The forest is popular among bird watchers and is home to about 85 species of birds. Red-wattled Lapwing, Crested Honey Buzzard, Grey Partridge, Coucal, Indian Eagle-owl, White-breasted Kingfisher, Pied Kingfisher, Southern Bush Lark and Red-whiskered Bulbul are commonly seen birds in the area.[2]

The 320-hectare Nanmangalam Reserved Forest, located about 10 km from Velachery, is a scrubland around an abandoned granite quarry[3] and is home to some of the rare territorial orchids, according to a recent study.

The state forest department has entrusted the work of data collection in this small forest area to Care Earth, a bio-diversity research organisation. Located near Medavakkam, a rapidly developing residential locality, the forest needs immediate fencing to protect it from encroachment and to curtail any non-forestry activity there, the study says.

Thiruneermalai

Quote:
Thiruneermalai is a panchayat town in Kancheepuram district in the Indian state of Tamil Nadu. It is popular for a temple on a hill. From the top of the hill, one can view the entire Pallavaram area.This place is very close to Chennai city (4 km from Pallavaram GST road).

The area is one of the 163 notified areas (megalithic sites) in the state of Tamil Nadu.

Pachai Malai - A strict NO for sight seeing. Very lonely and not a good place.

Thumbs down

I think this thread is out of place in SkyscraperCity. As the name suggests, this is primarily a forum for infrastructure and associated developments in places around the world. Chennai has so many aspects to it. But that does not mean that this forum should have threads about anything and everything in Chennai. Please stick to infrastructure related topics. So, this is my thumbs down to this thread and I feel this thread is totally unnecessary here.

I dont think this thread is totally unrelated to infrastructure development,forest and hills can be part of eco-tourism which again becomes a part of infrastructure development
