SOUTHERN SOJOURN


CHENNAI-MAHABALIPURAM-PONDICHERRY-TANJORE-CHETTINAD-MADURAI-PERIYAR-KUMARAKOM-COCHIN

Stunningly green, remarkable in its simplicity, fascinating in its culture and tradition, awe-inspiring architecture, the southern cities of India are a study in contrast with the more famous northern counterparts. Ancient trade routes ensured a cultural diversity and south India is a lesson in assimilation. One encounters reminders of British colonial presence to ancient structures dating back to the earliest kingdoms, medieval synagogues, churches and mosques along with extraordinary temple architecture. Art, architecture, music, dance, sumptuous food in balmy coast lines to sparse terrains, stunning greens home to wildlife, all come together in a sensory extravaganza.
