Chennai, a city hailed for its vibrant atmosphere and historic attractions, remains one of the most visited places in India.
Venture out of the city with trips to Mahabalipuram (Monuments at Mahabalipuram, Sea Shore Temple, & more) and DakshinaChitra Museum (in Muttukadu). There's still lots to do: enjoy the sand and surf at Marina Beach, gain a rich perspective with a tour of cultural highlights, admire the natural beauty at The Theosophical Society, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Sri Parthasarathy Temple.

To see where to stay, maps, traveler tips, and more tourist information, read our Chennai planning app .

If you are flying in from United Kingdom, the closest major airport is Chennai International Airport. Expect a daytime high around 41°C in August, and nighttime lows around 29°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 28th (Wed) so you can travel back home.
