Chennai, a city hailed for its vibrant atmosphere and historic attractions, remains one of the most visited places in India.
Do some cultural sightseeing at Sea Shore Temple and Monuments at Mahabalipuram. You'll get in some beach time at Marina Beach and Mahabalipuram Beach. Get out of town with these interesting Chennai (Madras) side-trips: DakshinaChitra Museum (in Muttukadu) and Mahabalipuram (Pancha Rathas, Krishna's Butter Ball, & more). The adventure continues: tour the pleasant surroundings at Besant Nagar Beach, identify plant and animal life at The Madras Crocodile Bank Trust and Centre for Herpetology, take in the spiritual surroundings of Kapaleeshwar Temple, and take a stroll through Mylapore.

To see more things to do, reviews, and other tourist information, you can read our Chennai (Madras) trip itinerary maker website .

In September, plan for daily highs up to 39°C, and evening lows to 29°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 29th (Sat) to allow enough time to travel back home.
