In the 18th century, the French returned Madras, after a brief occupation to the English. They erected 13 pillars a short distance away from the fort and banned any construction in the space between. Soon, a new Black Town came up and later the Madras High Court was set up at this location. Today, only one pillar remains and this is preserved within the walls of Parry’s building. By the 1960s, the population had completely changed. Tamil refugees from Burma arrived and settled down in the area, giving rise to the present day Burma Bazaar, which sold imported products. In order to take in George Town’s rich history a leisurely walk in the area is a must.
