Chennai, a city hailed for its vibrant atmosphere and historic attractions, remains one of the most visited places in India.
Change things up with these side-trips from Chennai: Mahabalipuram (Sea Shore Temple, The Madras Crocodile Bank Trust and Centre for Herpetology, & more) and DakshinaChitra Museum (in Muttukadu). There's much more to do: take in the spiritual surroundings of Kapaleeshwarar Temple, enjoy the sand and surf at Besant Nagar Beach, get the lay of the land with Walking tours, and pause for some serene contemplation at San Thome Church.

Quickly create a custom-made itinerary for Chennai using our trip planner.

In September, plan for daily highs up to 39°C, and evening lows to 29°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 21st (Sat) to allow time to travel back home.
