It has a line of statues, that the wiki link above lists; and here’s the sunrise on the statue of

The beach faces east, and sunrises are beautiful…when there’s a sunrise, can thoughts of be far behind? :)

Here’s the “Gandhi silai” (statue of Gandhi) that stands at the junciton of the Beach road and Radhakrishnan Road:
