Chennai, a city hailed for its vibrant atmosphere and historic attractions, remains one of the most visited places in India.
Venture out of the city with trips to Mahabalipuram (The Madras Crocodile Bank Trust and Centre for Herpetology, Arjuna's Penance, & more). There's still lots to do: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Kapaleeshwarar Temple, kick back and relax at Marina Beach, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Besant Nagar Beach.

To find maps, photos, other places to visit, and other tourist information, read Chennai travel planner .

In August, plan for daily highs up to 41°C, and evening lows to 29°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 19th (Mon) early enough to travel back home.
