Chennai, a city hailed for its vibrant atmosphere and historic attractions, remains one of the most visited places in India.
Sea Shore Temple and Monuments at Mahabalipuram will appeal to history buffs. Descent Of The Ganges and Varaha Cave Temple are good opportunities to explore the local culture. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Chennai (Madras): Mahabalipuram (India Seashell Museum, Krishna Mandapam, & more). There's lots more to do: shop like a local with Phoenix Marketcity, buy something for everyone on your list at Express Avenue Mall, take in the spiritual surroundings of Vadapalani Murugan Temple, and make a trip to T Nagar, Ranganathan Street.
