Chennai, a city hailed for its vibrant atmosphere and historic attractions, remains one of the most visited places in India.
Escape the urban bustle at The Madras Crocodile Bank Trust and Centre for Herpetology and Covelong Beach. Your inner history buff will appreciate Sea Shore Temple and Varaha Cave Temple. Venture out of the city with trips to Mahabalipuram (Mahishasuramardini Cave, Descent Of The Ganges, & more) and DakshinaChitra Museum (in Muttukadu). And it doesn't end there: enjoy the sand and surf at Marina Beach, take in the spiritual surroundings of Sri Parthasarathy Temple, examine the collection at Vivekananda House- Multimedia Cultural Museum, and admire the striking features of San Thome Church.

For more things to do and tourist information, refer to the Chennai journey website .

If you are flying in from Mauritius, the closest major airport is Chennai International Airport. Expect a daytime high around 39°C in September, and nighttime lows around 29°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 24th (Tue) so you can travel back home.
