Book flights from Miami to Chennai with Qatar Airways
Arriving in Chennai, India
Barely 400 years old, the cultural melting pot of Chennai, in southern India, is nevertheless a fascinating and vibrant city that’s full of surprises. Fly to Chennai with Qatar Airways and discover this rich cultural diversity for yourself.
Chennai may not have as many ancient temples and monuments as some of the older Indian cities, but it still manages to surprise and delight visitors nonetheless. A patchwork of districts come together to create a uniquely quirky city that offers visitors an incredibly warm and friendly welcome.
Every culture that has had a say in the development of Chennai has left behind a legacy of monuments, architecture and cultural nuances that make this destination so interesting.
However, despite its relatively recent establishment as a city, Chennai has a few little gems of older architecture, such as Kapaleeswarar Temple, which is said to date as far as the 8th century.
European influences (and in particular the English Raj) have also left their architectural mark with a clutch of churches and buildings that are typically Victorian in design.
The main thing that draws visitors to Chennai, though, are its beaches. Marina Beach, is 12-kilometres long and lined with flower beds and colonial buildings, while Covelong – once a small fishing village – is now a luxury resort.
The Wallajah Mosque, located on Wallajah Road in Triplicane, is a historically important building constructed by the Wallajah family in 1795.
