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, Mahishasuramardini Cave, & more) and DakshinaChitra Museum (in Muttukadu). There's lots more to do: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Kapaleeshwarar Temple, take in nature's colorful creations at The Theosophical Society, take in the architecture and atmosphere at San Thome Church, and identify plant and animal life at The Madras Crocodile Bank Trust and Centre for Herpetology.

To find photos, maps, more things to do, and more tourist information, go to the Chennai trip itinerary maker website .

April in Chennai sees daily highs of 42°C and lows of 30°C at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 3rd (Fri) to allow enough time to travel back home.
