What We Love About Chennai

Chennai is the capital city of the Indian state of Tamil Nadu. Located in South India, it's also one of the biggest cultural and economic hubs in the country! Steeped in history––with its roots as a British military outpost––remnants of the era like the Fort St. George and the Government Museum in Chennai are attractions worth visiting. One of India's oldest and most prestigious universities, the University of Madras, is also located here. Spend an evening strolling along the shores of Marina Beach for the best sunset views and dinner options.
