Chennai, a city hailed for its vibrant atmosphere and historic attractions, remains one of the most visited places in India.
Discover out-of-the-way places like Descent Of The Ganges and Vadapalani Murugan Temple. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Chennai: Mahabalipuram (Krishna's Butter Ball, Ganesh Ratha Temple, & more), Varadharaja Perumal Temple (in Kanchipuram) and DakshinaChitra Museum (in Muttukadu). There's still lots to do: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Kapaleeshwarar Temple, stroll through Marina Beach, look for all kinds of wild species at The Madras Crocodile Bank Trust and Centre for Herpetology, and wander the streets of Mylapore.
