Visit Chennai

Spend half-day visiting Fort St George (bastion of the British East India Company), San Thome Cathedral (where the Apostle Thomas was interred); and the Bronze Gallery at the Madras Museum. Visit the ancient Kapaleeswarar Temple at Mylapore and drink a traditional yard-long kapi (coffee). Or gawk at the scale of one of India’s largest vegetable wholesale markets at 5 am in the morning. Make longer day trips out to Mamallapuram, 5th century UNESCO World Heritage Site with its rock temples; see the magnificent living temples of Kanchipuram; or visit former French colony Pondicherry with its heritage Quarter and Creole cuisine.
