Chennai, a city hailed for its vibrant atmosphere and historic attractions, remains one of the most visited places in India.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Vadapalani Murugan Temple and Arulmigu Aadhi Vyadhi Hara Bhaktha Anjaneyar Temple. Get outdoors at Elliot's Beach and Palavakkam Beach. Venture out of the city with trips to Kanchipuram (Arulmigu sri Vilakoli Perumal Temple, Kamakshi Amman Temple, &more). Next up on the itinerary: take in the spiritual surroundings of Kalikambal Temple, gain a rich perspective with a tour of cultural highlights, take a stroll through Mylapore, and shop like a local with Phoenix Marketcity.

Only one word accurately describes India's commercial capital Mumbai: big.
Take a break from the city and head to Kharghar Hills and Kanheri Caves. Discover out-of-the-way places like Bhaja Caves and Upvan Lake.

The adventure continues: don't miss a visit to Worli Sea Face, explore the striking landscape of Sanjay Gandhi National Park, take a memorable drive along Marine Drive, and pause for some photo ops at Gateway of India.
