Madras Progressive Union School

George Town or Black Town is one of the oldest settlements of Chennai city, which was established by the British. This congested and crowded area is dotted with a lot of historic buildings, streets and old temples. The Madras Progressive Union School is one of such structures that have heritage value.

The Madras Progressive Union Higher Secondary School is located in Audiappa Naicken Street. It was started in 1888 CE. It is one of the oldest surviving schools of Chennai city.

The two popular political parties of Tamil Nadu are named as Dravida Munnettra Kazhagam and Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam. And, in Tamil language, this school is called as Chennai Munnetra Kazhagam School. :-)

Happy travelling.
