Chennai, a city hailed for its vibrant atmosphere and historic attractions, remains one of the most visited places in India.
You'll discover tucked-away gems like Tirumala Tirupati Devasthanams and Kalikambal Temple. Change things up with these side-trips from Chennai: Kanchipuram (Sri Varadharaja Perumal Temple & Kamakshi Amman Temple) and Mahabalipuram (Sea Shore Temple, Descent Of The Ganges, & more). Next up on the itinerary: take in the spiritual surroundings of Arulmigu Aadhi Vyadhi Hara Bhaktha Anjaneyar Temple, wander the streets of Mylapore, don't miss a visit to Indian Institute Of Technology, Madras, and browse the collection at The Anna Centenary Library.

To see photos, where to stay, traveler tips, and more tourist information, read our Chennai driving holiday planner.

If you are flying in from Singapore, the closest major airport is Chennai International Airport. Expect a daytime high around 41°C in August, and nighttime lows around 29°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 30th (Fri) early enough to travel back home.
