Chennai, a city hailed for its vibrant atmosphere and historic attractions, remains one of the most visited places in India.
Change things up with these side-trips from Chennai: Kanchipuram (Sri Varadharaja Perumal Temple & Kanchi Mahaswami Satabdhi Mani Mandapam), DakshinaChitra Museum (in Muttukadu) and Mahabalipuram (Sea Shore Temple, Pancha Rathas, & more). And it doesn't end there: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Kapaleeshwarar Temple, tour the pleasant surroundings at Besant Nagar Beach, take in the local highlights with Walking tours, and kick back and relax at Marina Beach.

To see photos, more things to do, where to stay, and more tourist information, read our Chennai trip itinerary site .

In August, plan for daily highs up to 41°C, and evening lows to 29°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 21st (Wed) so you can travel back home.
