Tamil Nadu Holidays Temple Tours of India Chennai Pondicherry Ooty

Tamil Nadu Holidays & Temple Tours of India: Chennai + Pondicherry + Ooty

Tamil Nadu in southern India is renowned for its fascinating array of ancient temples and palaces, many of which are World Heritage Sites.
 
Tamil Nadu holidays & temple tours of India usually start in the state capital of Chennai, which has been a bustling port on the eastern Coromandel Coast since the 1st century. Formerly known as Madras, it has given us 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 train to Ooty (or 'Toy Train') is another must, after which you can relax at this hill station, surrounded by tea plantations. You can then continue into the neighbouring state of Karnataka to view the palaces at Mysore and the garden city of Bangalore, which is a great way to end Tamil Nadu holidays & temple tours.
