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. Get some historical perspective at Vadapalani Murugan Temple and Ananthaa Padmanabha Swaamy Temple. Change things up with these side-trips from Chennai: Mahabalipuram (Raya Gopura, Tiger Cave, & more), Kanchipuram (Sri Vaikuntha Perumal Temple (Parameshwara Vinnagaram) & Kamakshi Amman Temple) and Covelong Beach (in Covelong). Next up on the itinerary: take in the spiritual surroundings of Kalikambal Temple, take a stroll through Mylapore, stroll through Marina Beach, and identify plant and animal life at Chennai Turtle Walk.

For more things to do, maps, and other tourist information, use the Chennai road trip app .

In October, daily temperatures in Chennai can reach 38°C, while at night they dip to 28°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 10th (Thu) early enough to travel back home.
