Tamil Nadu Holidays Karnataka Tours Temples India Chennai Ooty Train

Tamil Nadu Holidays & Karnataka Tours

The states of Tamil Nadu and Karnataka in southern India are renowned for their fascinating array of ancient temples and palaces, many of which are World Heritage Sites.
 
Tamil Nadu holidays & Karnataka tours therefore tend to focus on visiting some of these astonishing Temples of India. The best starting point is Chennai, which has been a bustling port on the eastern Coromandel Coast since the 1st century. Formerly known as Madras, it is home to one of the world's most popular curries. From here head south to the ancient port of Mahabalipuram, and visit the former French colony of Pondicherry, before visiting more temples of India at Thanjavur.
 
A trip on the narrow gauge Ooty Train (or 'Toy Train') is another must, after which you can relax at this hill station, surrounded by tea plantations. Finally view some of the palaces of Mysore and the garden city of Bangalore, which is a great way to end Tamil Nadu holidays & Karnataka tours.
