Chennai, a city hailed for its vibrant atmosphere and historic attractions, remains one of the most visited places in India.

There's lots more to do: take in the spiritual surroundings of Kapaleeshwarar Temple, take in nature's colorful creations at The Theosophical Society, take a stroll through Mylapore, and kick back and relax at Marina Beach.
