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. Venture out of the city with trips to Covelong Beach (in Covelong), DakshinaChitra Museum (in Muttukadu) and Mahabalipuram (Ganesh Ratha Temple, Varaha Cave Temple, & more). Next up on the itinerary: contemplate the long history of Kapaleeshwarar Temple, take in the spiritual surroundings of ISKCON Chennai, Sri Sri Radha Krishna Temple, take a stroll through Mylapore, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Marina Beach.

To see where to stay, photos, other places to visit, and more tourist information, read our Chennai travel planner .

In March, daily temperatures in Chennai can reach 39°C, while at night they dip to 27°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 30th (Sat) to allow time to travel back home.
