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 MadrasMuseum. Visit the ancient KapaleeswararTemple at Mylapore and drink a traditional yard-long kapi (coffee). Or gawk at the scale of one of Indiaís largest vegetable wholesale markets at 4 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.
