Chennai, a city hailed for its vibrant atmosphere and historic attractions, remains one of the most visited places in India.
You'll visit kid-friendly attractions like Marina Beach and Arulmigu Aadhi Vyadhi Hara Bhaktha Anjaneyar Temple. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Chennai: DakshinaChitra Museum (in Muttukadu) and Mahabalipuram (Varaha Cave Temple, Sea Shore Temple, & more). There's much more to do: take in the spiritual surroundings of Kapaleeshwarar Temple, get the lay of the land with Walking tours, tour the pleasant surroundings at Besant Nagar Beach, and take in nature's colorful creations at The Theosophical Society.
