    Geography  in Chennai (Madras)

    Located at 13.04° N 80.17° E on the southeast coast of India, Chennai is positioned at the northeast corner of Tamil Nadu. It locates at an average elevation of 6 meters (20 feet), its highest point being 60 m (200 ft). On a flat coastal plain known as the Eastern Coastal Plains, several lakes of varying size are located on the western fringes of the city. It offers a quite low-lying strip of land. The city stretches its 19 km length along the Coromandel coast and extends 9 km at its widest inland. Its irregular shape covers about 172 sq km.


    The historic Buckingham canal moves almost parallel to the coast almost through the complete length of the city. Two rivers meander through Chennai, the Cooum (or Koovam) in the central region and the Adyar in the southern region. Chennai is positioned on a flat coastal plain known as the Eastern Coastal Plains. The city is trisected by two east-flowing rivers that traverse its width. The city is divided into two halves by the Cooum River. The Adyar River divides the southern half of the city into two.
