Chennai, a city hailed for its vibrant atmosphere and historic attractions, remains one of the most visited places in India.
Get out of town with these interesting Chennai side-trips: DakshinaChitra Museum (in Muttukadu) and Mahabalipuram (Sea Shore Temple, Pancha Rathas, & more). And it doesn't end there: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Kapaleeshwar Temple, enjoy the sand and surf at Besant Nagar Beach, take in nature's colorful creations at The Theosophical Society, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Marina Beach.
