Anna Memorial, Kanchipuram

Anna Memorial, Kanchipuram
Anna Memorial is located at a distance of 3 Kms from Kanchipuram Bus Station and 3 Kms from Kanchipuram Railway Station. Anna Memorial is situated in Vishnu Kanchi. Dr. C.N. Annadurai, the former Chief Minister of Tamilnadu and the founder of D.M.K. was born in Kanchipuram. He is popularly called as Arignar Anna too.

Later in 1980 this house, where Anna was born, was converted into a memorial exhibiting his statue, photos and life history. As he is associated with the Dravidian movement and the nationalist movement one can see the evolution of these important movements which made a breakthrough in the lives of the Tamils who hailed him as their elder brother 'Anna'.
