Chennai — 5 nights

Detroit of South Asia

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 Elliot's Beach and Mahishasuramardini Cave. You'll discover tucked-away gems like Covelong Beach and Pancha Pandava Cave. Venture out of the city with trips to Kanchipuram (Kailasanathar Temple & Kamakshi Amman Temple) and Mahabalipuram (Tiger Cave, Trimurti Cave, &more). There's still lots to do: kick back and relax at Marina Beach, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Sri Ramakrishna Math, stroll through Besant Nagar Beach, and make a trip to Ayappan Temple.
