Chennai — 6 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.
Change things up with these side-trips from Chennai: Mahabalipuram (Monuments at Mahabalipuram, Shore Temple, &more) and Tirumala Tirupati Devasthanams (in Tirupati). And it doesn't end there: kick back and relax at Marina Beach, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Shirdi Sai Baba Temple, gain insight with a tour of cultural highlights, and browse the different shops at Express Avenue Mall.

Plan my Chennai trip by asking Inspirock to come up with tips and suggestions.
