Chennai, a city hailed for its vibrant atmosphere and historic attractions, remains one of the most visited places in India.
Get some historical perspective at Sea Shore Temple and San Thome Church. Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at Express Avenue Mall and The Forum Vijaya Mall. Change things up with these side-trips from Chennai: Mahabalipuram (Monuments at Mahabalipuram, Mahishasuramardini Cave, & more). There's still lots to do: kick back and relax at Marina Beach, take in the spiritual surroundings of Sri Parthasarathy Temple, wander the streets of Mylapore, and get a taste of the local shopping with Phoenix Marketcity.
