Chennai (Madras)

Chennai, a city hailed for its vibrant atmosphere and historic attractions, remains one of the most visited places in India.
Step out of Chennai (Madras) to go to Muttukadu and see DakshinaChitra Museum, which is approximately 1h 15 min away. There's much more to do: identify plant and animal life at Madras Crocodile Bank, take in the architecture and atmosphere at San Thome Church, tour the pleasant surroundings at Marina Beach, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Sri Parthasarathy Temple.

To find maps, reviews, and tourist information, read our Chennai (Madras) travel itinerary creator.

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airport is Chennai International Airport. In December, plan for daily highs up to 85°F, and evening lows to 71°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 9th (Sat) so you can travel back home.
