Some of the most amazing and intriguing sights in our cities are only seen at night, when a lot of us are tucked away in bed, fast asleep. Nocturn is a new night photography series on UrbanDuniya, shining the light on the cities we call home, long after most people have fallen asleep.
We start today with Chennai, the largest city in southern India and the home of the Tamil-speaking world.
See Chennai, while you were sleeping.

Chennai Central never sleeps

The crowds are thinning out on Marina Beach

Have you ever wondered where the autorickshaws go to sleep at night?
