Flights to Chennai

Flights to Chennai transport you into an India that’s temperamentally and historically separate from the north.

Close by is Pondicherry (now Puducherry), the last enclave of French India, one of India’s most fascinating cities – recently brought to life in the movie Life of Pi. Just outside is the ‘experimental city’ of Auroville, whose centrepiece, a golden sphere called the Matrimandir, is one of the wonders of modern India. And while there are great Hindu temples such as Kanchipuram and Tiruchirapalli there are remnants, too, of the Chola dynasty – notably in the town of Thanjavur.
