    I have had thoughts about going to Chennai at the end of the year when the weather is much pleasant in the South.
    I plan to visit some of the famous temples there but I would also like to know if I go there what places of interest in Chennai should I visit.

    I think the South has totally different places from North India, so it would be interesting to see them.
