The MGR Memorial house situated in Arcot Street, T.Nagar was opened for public viewing in 1990 by Mrs.JanakiRamachandran and this house in Chennai was the official residence of Late Dr.MGR and was used by him for more than two decades.
As soon as you enter the house you can see the dark green coloured car bearing the number plate TMX 4777, ready to 'take-off' with the sirens glowing. The shields presented to Late Dr.MGR are displayed in an orderly manner, in the reception. Once you reach the first floor you will land in his office room. The swords, spears, heavy wooden clubs used by him, shirts that adorned him, television, the books read by him, camera, trolley, the cloth bandage that was tied on him when he was shot, photographs are all there for the fans to see and remember their screen idol.
What’s more, even you can get a glimpse of his MLA identification card, his famous cap and dark glasses, pen, the 'Bharath Ratna' medal won by him, the certificate given to him when he was conferred with the doctorate degree are all exhibited here.
This memorial is really a gift of Dr.MGR to his fans.He has willed that the income from the market he owned in alandur purchased by him when he was acting in movies is to be used for the expenses relating to the maintenance of the memorial.
The house is open for public viewing from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm on all days except Tuesdays.There is no entrance fee. This memorial was established and is maintained by the MGR Memorial Charitable Trust
