ARRIVAL AT CHENNAI 

BEFORE WE START WE WISH TO EMPHASIZE THAT THE DETAILS OF SITES OR PLACES IN OUR TOURS DO NOT REMAIN RESTRICTED OR CONCLUSIVE. ON THE CONTRARY WE MEET MUCH MORE IN OUR WAY TO OUR DESTINATIONS.

We welcome you at the Chennai International Airport and escort you to the selected hotel at Mahaballipuram for an overnight stay. 

MAHABALIPURAM

Good Morning, Mahaballipuram !
We dedicate the morning to visit the imposing remains excavated in the rock of the ancient temples that surround this town which was the port of the Pallava dynasty. The simplicity of Mahaballipuram's structures is overwhelming, as is the enclave of one of its most famous temples, the Shore Temple, on top of a promontory overlooking the Bay of Bengal. In the afternoon, if we wish we can walk along the beach, although the enclave is not recommended for swimming due to strong underwater currents.
Overnight stay at hotel.

MAHABALIPURAM TO THANJAVUR

Good Morning, Mahaballipuram !
We start for Thanjavur.  Home to many ancient temples and historical palm-leaf manuscripts.
We stay near Kumbakonam where we can make a relaxed visit to the village with historical temples of outstanding architecture.
Tamil Nadu is a state famous for spinning and weaving silk; and it would be good to see the process in person. 
Overnight stay at hotel. 


 

THANJAVUR TO CHETTINAD

Thanjavur is chiefly led and highlighted by two magnificent premises.
First is the Brihadishwara Temple that dates back to the 11th century to the Chola dynasty.  The cupola carved in granite was placed on top through a 6 km ramp, imitating the Egyptian technique to built the pyramids.  
Second is the Thanjavur Maratha Palace or Royal Palace that has been the official residence of the Bhonsle family whose ancesters ruled Thanjavur three centuries ago.  The Palace, a work of the Nayak and Maratha dynasties, in spite of its decadence keeps its splendorous appearance.
The historical Chola bronzes and other artistic pieces that treasure the two premises / monuments are of the great value. 
In the afternoon, we continue our journey to the Chettinad region.
Overnight stay at hotel. 

 

CHETTINAD TO MADURAI

Chettinad, once a rich & prosperous region of merchants, still offers the peculiar articles of architecture of the early dynasties of Tamil Nadu, chiefly the Chola dynasty. 
The spacious and great palaces of the merchants still continue standing in here.  Some of them have been converted into hotels & restaurants, and allow us to see the pattern of living of the area first hand.  
In the afternoon, we return to the road to reach Madurai, the religious capital of South India.
Overnight stay at hotel.

 

MADURAI

Madurai, one of the most famous cities in India for its historically religious & mysterious significance. The pilgrims and tourists gather in great number in the historical city, especially around the famous temple of Sri Meenakshi, one of the most kitsch of Dravidian religious art & architecture. The ecology and environment of the temple is extraordinary and must be attended and joined to.
We can also approach the labyrinthine market located in north of the temple or visit the Palace of Thirumalai Nayak a short distance away,where we can see the Entrance Gate, the Main Hall and the Dance Hall.
Overnight stay at hotel.

MADURAI TO KANYAKUMARI

Good Morning, Madurai !
The visit to the west coast of India takes us through the plains of Tamil Nadu, covered by windmills. We  reach Kanyakumari, the southern tip of India, where the Arabian Sea and the Bay of Bengal come together, a sacred place for Hinduism.
We will continue to the Padnamabhapuram Palace still in Tamil Nadu, but it was the seat of administration by princely state of Travancore until the 18th century.  Beautiful history can be grasped in here.

KOVALAM BACKWATERS TO KOCHI

We dedicate the day to a cruise through the backwaters that  takes us to the surroundings of Allepey, through narrow channels dotted with coconut trees and small villages. We  have the opportunity to see & experience - the life on the banks of these canals, the crops and traditional fishing; as well as enjoying the relaxed life on board. The ship has all the comforts and the crew serve us exquisite keralí food and will show us the main attractions en route. Late evening we continue towards Cochin (Kochi). 
Overnight stay at hotel.

COHIN (KOCHI)

Cochin or now, Kochi, had been the port for the merchants of Arab, China and Europe in 14th century. 
And the life today in here still displays the blend of these cultures and life-styles.

The city of Fort Kochi is situated at an island opposite the port of Ernakulam. Its streets have preserved the colonial life-style / environment, something that has attracted numerous artists and intellectuals. Therefore, Kochi breathes a unique and bohemian atmosphere-cum-social environment with charming cafes and restaurants. At the same time, it is a city full of attractions such as its famous Cantilevered Chinese fishing nets that are a beautiful setting for the sunset. Cochin spice market, the Sun spice market most famous spice market in Kerala and its signs of the Jewish culture remains important to visit and make some purchases.
Overnight stay at hotel.

KOCHI TO OOTY

Good Morning, Kochi !  And time to bid goodbye.
We  leave Cochin and Kerala to head towards the Ooty (Tamil Nadu) a hill station. Along the way, we  cross hillsides covered with tea plantations. The British had a place of rest in Ooty during the tropical summers. 
The Central Ooty Lake (artificial expanse of waters) and the Government Botanical Gardens are the chief attractions in here.  The Botanical Gardens are a fine home to ferns, orchids and a prehistoric fossilized tree trunk estimated to be 20 milion years old.

OOTY TO MYSORE (MYSURU)

Good Morning, Ooty !
We leave the mountains to cross the Bandipur National Park, the animal reserve and reach Mysore (official name Mysuru), the city of sandalwood and incense sticks.
