The city of Chennai is bursting at the seams and spilling over to the small towns lying on its outskirts. One such locality is that of Padappai. The locality owes its name (meaning “beautiful flower garden”) to the number of nurseries that surround it. Once a small suburb, this town is developing quickly, owing to the number of big companies sprouting up around it. Add to this, it is in proximity to the city of Tambaram. The locality is abundant in unlocked land parcels and there is plenty of scope for it to grow further.
One should, however, not dismiss Padappai as just a new locality. Educational institutions like St. Mary Matric School and Padappai High School, and healthcare centres like Sayee Hospital, Sri Nursing Home, and others have contributed significantly to the social infrastructure of this small town.
