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 (Sea Shore Temple, Monuments at Mahabalipuram, & more), DakshinaChitra Museum (in Muttukadu) and Kanchipuram (Sri Varadharaja Perumal Temple, Kamakshi Amman Temple, & more). There's still lots to do: take in the spiritual surroundings of Kapaleeshwarar Temple, don't miss a visit to Lord Veeraraghava Perumal Temple, get the lay of the land with Walking tours, and get your game on at Ethnic Experiences.

For more things to do, photos, reviews, and tourist information, go to the Chennai attractions planner .

Phoenix, USA to Chennai is an approximately 26-hour flight. You can also do a combination of bus and flight. Traveling from Phoenix to Chennai, you'll lose 12 hours due to the time zone difference.

Cap off your sightseeing on the 18th (Sat) early enough to travel to Mumbai.
