Chennai, a city hailed for its vibrant atmosphere and historic attractions, remains one of the most visited places in India.
Explore Chennai's surroundings by going to Mahabalipuram (The Madras Crocodile Bank Trust and Centre for Herpetology, Sea Shore Temple, & more). There's lots more to do: take in the spiritual surroundings of Kapaleeshwarar Temple, tour the pleasant surroundings at Marina Beach, and enjoy the sand and surf at Besant Nagar Beach.

For more things to do, maps, reviews, and other tourist information, you can read our Chennai trip planner.

In October in Chennai, expect temperatures between 38°C during the day and 28°C at night. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 28th (Mon) so you can travel back home.
