Southern India

The south, more exotic than the north, is the crossroads of many cultures and predominately comprises of the states of Tamil Nadu, Karnataka and Telangana. Reminders of the region’s historical role as the cradle of Dravidian culture are evident all over the state in the form of huge temple complexes, beautiful rock carvings and evocative music and dance.

Tamil Nadu is the best known of the three and offers the chance to discover some of India’s greatest temple treasures. The religious complexes in Madurai, Kumbakonam and Tanjore are exceptional, whilst the mansions of Karaikkudi and former French colony of Pondicherry are fascinating places to explore. To the north, visit the regal city of Mysore and excellent Nagarhole National Park. Crossing coffee plantations, lush green valleys, teak wood forests and mountain ranges you’ll enter underexplored Karnataka. Visit the  UNESCO World Heritage Site of Hampi,    the stunning Islamic architecture of Bijapur then continue to Hyderabad, capital of Telangana.

Take a visual journey through what we consider to be some of Southern India’s unmissable highlights.
