Chennai, a city hailed for its vibrant atmosphere and historic attractions, remains one of the most visited places in India.
You'll get in some beach time at Marina Beach and Covelong Beach. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to India Seashell Museum and DakshinaChitra Museum. Explore Chennai's surroundings by going to Mahabalipuram (Ganesh Ratha Temple, Varaha Cave Temple, & more). There's still lots to do: shop like a local with Phoenix Marketcity, steep yourself in history at Kapaleeshwarar Temple, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Vadapalani Murugan Temple, and admire the striking features of San Thome Church.

To see other places to visit, maps, photos, and other tourist information, refer to the Chennai trip planner.

In March, daytime highs in Chennai are 39°C, while nighttime lows are 27°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 8th (Fri) to allow enough time to travel back home.
