Chennai, a city hailed for its vibrant atmosphere and historic attractions, remains one of the most visited places in India.
Discover out-of-the-way places like Descent Of The Ganges and Krishna Mandapam. Museum-lovers will appreciate India Seashell Museum and Maritime Heritage Museum. Get out of town with these interesting Chennai side-trips: DakshinaChitra Museum (in Muttukadu), Mahabalipuram (Mahishasuramardini Cave, Varaha Cave Temple, & more) and Vedagiriswarar Temple (in Thirukalukundram). And it doesn't end there: admire the landmark architecture of Varadharaja Perumal Temple, wander the streets of Mylapore, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Shirdi Sai Baba Temple Injambakkam.
