The walk is to find out how Madras was created by the British. The traces could be found in Pulicat, where the British were fighting to settle down to trade. Before 1639, the British had their trading post in Armagon (Durgarajapattinam) northern end of Pulicat Lagoon. Pulicat Lagoon was the most favourable location to anchor large wooden ships and travel into the hinterlands where cotton was woven into fine clothes. In 1502, the Portuguese landed at Pazhaverakadu and established their trade links with the Vijayanagara Kingdom. Followed by them, the Dutch arrived in 1602AD forming the East India Company. After seeing the rise in power and money of the Dutch and Portuguese, the British and French followed to settle on the Coromandel Coast. More of the details will be presented during the full-day Heritage Walk on 27-AUG-2022 at Pazhaverkadu (Pulicat).
