Chennai (Madras) ©
Chennai, a city hailed for its vibrant atmosphere and historic attractions, remains one of the most visited places in India.
Step off the beaten path and head to Descent Of The Ganges and Varaha Cave Temple. Venture out of the city with trips to Mahabalipuram (Arjuna's Penance, Krishna Mandapam, & more) and Covelong Beach (in Covelong). And it doesn't end there: enjoy the sand and surf at Marina Beach, take in the spiritual surroundings of Kalikambal Temple, stroll through Elliot's Beach, and look for all kinds of wild species at The Madras Crocodile Bank Trust and Centre for Herpetology.

Expect a daytime high around 39°C in September, and nighttime lows around 29°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 8th (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
