Chennai, a city hailed for its vibrant atmosphere and historic attractions, remains one of the most visited places in India.
Appreciate the collections at DakshinaChitra Museum and India Seashell Museum. Head to Phoenix Marketcity and Pondy Bazaarfor plenty of shopping. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Chennai: Kanchipuram (Varadharaja Perumal Temple, Varadharaja Perumal Temple, & more), Mahabalipuram (Monuments at Mahabalipuram, Sea Shore Temple, & more) and Covelong Beach (in Covelong). There's more to do: take in the spiritual surroundings of Vadapalani Murugan Temple and wander the streets of Mylapore.
