Chennai, a city hailed for its vibrant atmosphere and historic attractions, remains one of the most visited places in India.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Chennai: DakshinaChitra Museum (in Muttukadu) and Mahabalipuram (Krishna Mandapam, Monuments at Mahabalipuram, & more). There's much more to do: take in the spiritual surroundings of Kapaleeshwarar Temple, get the lay of the land with Walking tours, kick back and relax at Besant Nagar Beach, and take in the architecture and atmosphere at San Thome Church.

To find photos, reviews, where to stay, and tourist information, you can read our Chennai trip itinerary builder app .

In August, daytime highs in Chennai are 41°C, while nighttime lows are 29°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 24th (Sat) to allow time to travel back home.
