Chennai's Sister Cities


I wanted to know which were the sister cities for chennai and found out some of the curious ones.

The first to become the sister city of chennai was Volgograd,Russia in 1966. This was during the time when Russia was involved in a strategic partnership with India during the period of cold war.

In the year 1984, Chennai became the sister to another major city. This time it was Denver, Colorado. Later in 2005, Frankfurt also became a sister city. Very recently in April 2007, San Antonio has also expressed its wish to become one.

I'm happy that my city is having so many sisters.
