Chennai, a city hailed for its vibrant atmosphere and historic attractions, remains one of the most visited places in India.
Get out of town with these interesting Chennai side-trips: Mahabalipuram (Monuments at Mahabalipuram, Sea Shore Temple, & more), Kanchipuram (Arulmigu Kandaswamy Temple, Chitragupta Swamy Temple, & more) and Sriperumbudur (Vallakottai Murugan Temple & Adi Kesava Perumal Temple). There's much more to do: kick back and relax at Marina Beach, take in the architecture and atmosphere at San Thome Church, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Jain Temple, and take in the local highlights with Walking tours.

For where to stay, traveler tips, photos, and tourist information, read our Chennai tour planning website .

Use the Route module to find travel options from your starting location to Chennai. Expect a daytime high around 35°C in January, and nighttime lows around 24°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 13th (Thu) to allow enough time to travel back home.
