Highlights

1/ Starting from Chennai, the automobile capital of India, Chennai, in short, is a journey into timeless India, a kaleidoscope of moods. Rich in the treasures of history, from temples and shrines to forts and palaces, the landscape of the past lives easily with the present.

2/ From Chennai to Puducherry (shortly Pondy), the charming former French outpost, that retains a relaxed and artistic atmosphere even with a population of over 1 million. Great food and gorgeous nearby beaches are all awaiting us to give us a one of kind experience.

3/ Next stop, Thanjavur – a major religious, literary and political center of South India, frequently celebrated for its contribution to classical Carnatic music, Bharathanatyam dance and Tanjore painting and dolls. Thiruvaiyaru, which is close to Thanjavur, is the place where the great musician Saint Thyagaraja lived. If you are a lover of fine arts, this place will more than fill your appetite.

4/ Yercaud is next, a beautiful hill station near Salem, Tamil Nadu in the Servarayan range, this town is popularly known as the “poor man’s ooty.” Yercaud is awash in natural beauty and its name comes from “yeri” meaning lake and “kaadu” meaning forest.

5/ Thiruvannamalai, also known as the Moon City, is a humble, pilgrimage town in the Tamil Nadu. Every month at the full moon thousands of pilgrims gather to circumnavigate the base of the Arunachala Mountain, approximately 14 km in circumference, where Shiva is honored as Arunachaleswar. Thiruvannamalai is one of the Pancha Butha Sthalangal, or rather one of the places where God appeared glorified in the form of an element, namely fire. Traveling to Tiruvannamalai is a spiritual journey filled with destiny and often leaves visitors physically, mentally and emotionally inspired.

6/ the end as the start, Chennai – the city grew up around the English settlement of Fort Saint George and gradually absorbed the surrounding towns and villages. Despite the strong British influence, Chennai has retained its traditional Tamil Hindu culture and effectively blended it with the foreign influence. Retaining much of its traditional charm, this 350 year old city is the gateway to the south, providing many a fascinating vignette of southern heritage.
