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). And it doesn't end there: steep yourself in history at Kapaleeshwarar Temple, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Sri Parthasarathy Temple, tour the pleasant surroundings at Besant Nagar Beach, and pause for some serene contemplation at St George's Cathedral.

To find reviews, maps, traveler tips, and more tourist information, read our Chennai journey builder app .

Expect a daytime high around 36°C in February, and nighttime lows around 24°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 8th (Fri) so you can travel back home.
