  Street sign on a main road.

Street names change. Frequently. Street signs are usually painted onto buildings at just below eye level, and I think are always yellow with black writing. Tamil and English are usually on the same sign; if not, check the other side of the street. Although the names won't match anything on your map, so it doesn't really matter…

The photo is the sign for a major road, whose name actually shows up on several maps. Many signs are located better than this one is, but most are not.
