Chennai, a city hailed for its vibrant atmosphere and historic attractions, remains one of the most visited places in India.
Relax by the water at Marina Beach and Covelong Beach. Popular historic sites such as Sea Shore Temple and Sri Santhana Srinivasa Perumal Temple are in your itinerary. Get out of town with these interesting Chennai side-trips: Mahabalipuram (Monuments at Mahabalipuram & India Seashell Museum) and DakshinaChitra Museum (in Muttukadu). Next up on the itinerary: stroll through Besant Nagar Beach, take in the spiritual surroundings of Kapaleeshwar Temple, look for all kinds of wild species at The Madras Crocodile Bank Trust and Centre for Herpetology, and see the interesting displays at Vivekananda House- Multimedia Cultural Museum.
