One of the main attractions in Anna Nagar is the 138 feet (42 m) tall Annanagar Tower, officially known as the Visveswaraya Tower, built for the 1968 World Trade Fair, by B. S. Abdur Rahman. It is popular with morning walkers and joggers, and with families and young people in the evenings to play and relax. The tower and park are now renovated and has a skating rink. Currently, it boasts of a good turnout of children who come in for practising their skills on roller skates. From atop the tower one can have a panoramic views, and the rapidly changing skyline of the city can be appreciated.
