Best Time to Visit Chennai - Chennai is a little infamous for its hot and humid weather, especially in the summer months, when the sweltering heat can be intolerable and that is why we recommend visiting Chennai during the winter months from November through February when the temperature is moderate and lingers between 20-25 degrees Celsius. It is during this time that Chennai celebrates the Tamil festival of Pongal. This festival takes place over a period of four days, when the whole city celebrates by cooking sweet rice (pongal) and enjoying sugarcane.
