::a pier::

Thalankuppam is a small fishing hamlet, at the extreme north of Madras city. A river – called variously the Kourtaliayaar, Mogathwaram, Thalankuppam – meets the sea here, at Thalankuppam. A wide, sandy beach, broken piers, fishing boats, and more make for a great way to spend the evening.

Thalankuppam, otherwise just a small dot in the map of Madras, has one little thing going for it. Fresh fish. Locals and people from far flock to the daily and weekly fish market here. Fish here is sold in big lots, and buyers bid for it.

Apparently, the British Raj too bought its fish from here. They would board their ships at the Fort St. George, sail north for 17 kilometres, and buy their lord’s favourite here, 200 years ago. (Text Courtesy – Ravages)
