Chennai, a city hailed for its vibrant atmosphere and historic attractions, remains one of the most visited places in India.
Step out of the city life by going to Marina Beach and Mahishasuramardini Cave. Visit Sea Shore Temple and Kapaleeshwarar Temple for their historical value. Get out of town with these interesting Chennai side-trips: Covelong Beach (in Covelong) and Mahabalipuram (The Madras Crocodile Bank Trust and Centre for Herpetology, Monuments at Mahabalipuram, & more). There's lots more to do: kick back and relax at Besant Nagar Beach, shop like a local with Pondy Bazaar, browse the different shops at The Forum Vijaya Mall, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Shirdi Sai Baba Temple.
