Chennai, a city hailed for its vibrant atmosphere and historic attractions, remains one of the most visited places in India.
Bring the kids along to The Madras Crocodile Bank Trust and Centre for Herpetology and Vadapalani Murugan Temple. Explore Chennai (Madras)'s surroundings by going to DakshinaChitra Museum (in Muttukadu) and Mahabalipuram (Monuments at Mahabalipuram, Sea Shore Temple, & more). And it doesn't end there: stroll through Marina Beach, take in the spiritual surroundings of Sri Parthasarathy Temple, browse the different shops at Express Avenue Mall, and enjoy the sand and surf at Elliot's Beach.
