Chennai, a city hailed for its vibrant atmosphere and historic attractions, remains one of the most visited places in India.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Descent Of The Ganges and Krishna Mandapam. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Chennai: Mahabalipuram (Monuments at Mahabalipuram, Mahishasuramardhini Mandapa, & more) and DakshinaChitra Museum (in Muttukadu). The adventure continues: contemplate the long history of Kapaleeshwarar Temple, take in the spiritual surroundings of Vadapalani Murugan Temple, get lost in a book at The Anna Centenary Library, and shop like a local with Phoenix Marketcity.

To find reviews, photos, more things to do, and tourist information, you can read our Chennai trip planner .

In June, daily temperatures in Chennai can reach 43°C, while at night they dip to 31°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 15th (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
