Chennai, a city hailed for its vibrant atmosphere and historic attractions, remains one of the most visited places in India.
Head to Express Avenue Mall and T Nagar, Ranganathan Streetfor plenty of shopping. Do some cultural sightseeing at DakshinaChitra Museum and India Seashell Museum. Change things up with these side-trips from Chennai: Om Sri Skandasramam (in Tambaram), Mahabalipuram (Sea Shore Temple, Raya Gopura, & more) and Vallakottai Murugan Temple (in Sriperumbudur). There's much more to do: identify plant and animal life at The Madras Crocodile Bank Trust and Centre for Herpetology, get a taste of the local shopping with Phoenix Marketcity, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Kapaleeshwarar Temple, and wander the streets of Pondy Bazaar.
