South India - A Living Heritage

South India - A Living Heritage


"So far as I am able to judge, nothing has been left undone, either by man or nature, to make India the most extraordinary country that the sun visits on his rounds. Nothing seems to have been forgotten, nothing overlooked." -- Mark Twain, from Following the Equator

What Mark Twain saw is best kept intact in South India. The delightful south ! Almost untouched by invasions madurai temple tour, trichy temple toursthroughout its history,.the Southern states of India, can be considered the most `Indian ` part of India .The Aryans never brought their meat eating influence to the south . The Muslims and British influence was minor . As a result Hindu forms of lifestyles and artistic & cultural expression are stronger here compared to anywhere else in India . While bringing to you the manifestations of the glorious artistic creativity of South India's incredible ancient heritage, we would not miss out on giving a human feel to your tour. We will interact with locals by visits to popular local bazaars, typical traditional work places, rides in local cycle rickshaws, visits to typical homes and stopping for walks and visits to tribal villages while driving through the countryside. We are attempting to harmonise the glorious past with the vibrating, colorful and extremely hospitable lifestyles of the present with which you could conveniently relate and see your own lives in a different perspective !
