Chennai is one of the India's largest cities. What was the previous city name?
The renaming of cities in India started after the end of the British imperial period in India in 1947 and continues to date. Madras was changed to Chennai in 1994, but the old name preserved in many institutions, like Madras Stock Exchange, Madras University and Madras High Court.
