Two Horse (Equestrian) statues at Gemini: Chennai Statues

Two equestrian (Horse) statues were installed during 1970s at Anna (Gemini) flyover, Chennai. This statue is facing towards Uthmar Gandhi Salai (or Nungambakkam High Road) and the other one towards Cathdral Road. These two equestrian statues were installed to commemorate the abolition Horse Race in Chennai.

There are people to believe that the man taming the horse has some resemblance with Vandhiya Thevan, the hero of Kalki's popular Tamil historical novel Ponniyin Selvan.
