Detroit of South Asia

Chennai, a city hailed for its vibrant atmosphere and historic attractions, remains one of the most visited places in India.

There's lots more to do: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Kalikambal Temple, tour the pleasant surroundings at Elliot's Beach, walk around Natesan Park, and admire the striking features of Rockfort Temple.
