Unusual guards

Even with a cursory look, these figures appear to be out-of-place in Chennai. The headgear, tunic, leggings and footwear, all indicate a nativity that is not from the southernmost states, where it was much more common for guards or soldiers to be bare torso-ed. 

More details about what these figures are guarding will come up in a future post, but for now, can you guess which part of Chennai these figures can be found in?
