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.

CHENNAI – MAHABALIPURAM

With the morning breakfast, we will visit each and every nook of Tamil Nadu. Chennai is the capital of Tamil Nadu and was created by British as their capital in the south so it has a deep colonial atmosphere. We will visit the Vivekananda House, the Saint George Fort, and Marina Beach. Before leaving, we will meet the NGO, “Prakriti” to learn about how they tackle AIDS, both in prevention and treatments. After that, we will leave for Mahabalipuram.

MAHABALIPURAM

Mahabalipuram is engulfed by a sea shore called Gulf of Bengal and is a beautiful enclave in the sea shore of the Gulf of Bengal. The impressive temples carved in the rocks and the Shore Temple, facing the sea, are some of its major interests. Mahabalipuram was the façade of the southern kingdom in the 10th Century to attract the merchants of the maritime silk routes. By evening, we will try some sea foods.

Overnight stay at hotel.

5 hours of driving will take us to Thanjavur, the capital of the Chola Dynasty. This kingdom was famous for its bronze sculptures, still reproduced in India as the greatest representation of Hindu gods. But, the city also has a World Heritage temple almost 1000 years old and the palace of Tanjore, the seat of the kings up to the Maratha dynasty which portrays the splendour of the south for many centuries

Overnight stay at hotel.


 

THANJAVUR – MADURAI

In the evening, we will reach Madurai, the cultural and commercial centre of this part of South Tamil Nadu.

Overnight with local families


 

MADURAI

Considered the Vatican of Hindus for some people, Madurai hosts the must see temple of Sri Meenakshi. It might seem a bit kitsch with all the colourful paintings in the stone carvings, but the fresh painting shows that this temple is alive. The atmosphere in the temple is amazing and unique. Surrounding it, a market of flowers where you get the necessary things for the rituals. Later, we can visit the palace of Thirumalai Nayak. In the evening, we will come back to the temple to see the rituals before closing the sancta sanctorum.

Overnight stay at hotel.


 

MADURAI – MUNNAR

Tea lovers Munnar is a place for you to indulge. Indian tea is worldwide famous and here you can find one of its best varieties. For those who prefer nature, Munnar gives a chance to walk in the forests. We will visit a cooperative of workers and a tea factory.

MUNNAR- KOCHI

After breakfast, we will drive to Kochi, a former European colonial city. Fort Kochi, the oldest part of the city, preserves all the atmosphere and charm of its history. The old houses have been occupied by intellectuals and artists, and a small Jewish community still lives here.
