Chennai, a city hailed for its vibrant atmosphere and historic attractions, remains one of the most visited places in India.
Visit Marina Beach and Covelong Beach for some beach relaxation. Venture out of the city with trips to Mahabalipuram (Monuments at Mahabalipuram, Sea Shore Temple, & more). There's lots more to do: stroll through Besant Nagar Beach, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Luz Anjaneyar Temple, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Sacred Heart Shrine, and examine the collection at Government Museum.

To see ratings, traveler tips, maps, and other tourist information, refer to the Chennai itinerary maker site .

Expect a daytime high around 42°C in April, and nighttime lows around 30°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 30th (Tue) early enough to travel back home.
