Chennai, a city hailed for its vibrant atmosphere and historic attractions, remains one of the most visited places in India.
Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Sea Shore Temple and Varaha Cave Temple. Get out of town with these interesting Chennai side-trips: Kamakshi Amman Temple (in Kanchipuram) and Mahabalipuram (Arjuna's Penance, Monuments at Mahabalipuram, & more). There's lots more to do: take in the spiritual surroundings of Kapaleeshwarar Temple, stroll through Besant Nagar Beach, pause for some serene contemplation at San Thome Church, and kick back and relax at Marina Beach.

Before you visit Chennai, use our trip planner to discover what you can do and see there.

In December, plan for daily highs up to 34°C, and evening lows to 25°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 30th (Mon) so you can travel back home.
