Chennai, a city hailed for its vibrant atmosphere and historic attractions, remains one of the most visited places in India.
Step off the beaten path and head to Descent Of The Ganges and Krishna Mandapam. Change things up with these side-trips from Chennai (Madras): Mahabalipuram (Group of Monuments at Mahabalipuram, Varaha Cave Temple, & more), DakshinaChitra Museum (in Muttukadu) and Covelong Beach (in Covelong). There's still lots to do: stroll through Marina Beach, meet the residents at Arignar Anna Zoological Park, take in the spiritual surroundings of Kapaleeshwar Temple, and shop like a local with Phoenix Marketcity.
