Tamil Nadu, the Land of Temples, is home to numerous ancient Hindu temples, many of which date back to hundreds of centuries. Ancient temples can be found in every district of this culturally and traditionally bound state. And a visit to Tamil Nadu would be incomplete if a travellers’ itinerary does not include temples.
We recommend that tourists visit Tamil Nadu and experience her rich heritage and glorious history. However, there is more to Tamil Nadu, then her temples. Blessed with a long coastline, the state boasts of some stunning beaches – right from the Marina in Chennai to Kanyakumari, the Southernmost tip of mainland India.
The seamless assimilation of the Western Ghats into this huge state offers an opportunity to experience nature at its best. The state boasts of exotic flora and fauna and mesmerising landscapes. Hills, waterfalls, dense forests, which include elephant corridors and tiger reserves. The best places to visit in Tamil Nadu are accessed by road, and there is no better way of travelling through the state other than renting a self-drive car.
Ensure that your Tamil Nadu travels, is about creating memories for a lifetime. And that can be best done when you are travelling alone, planning your journey, along the way. The places of interest are scattered and do not lie on a single defined route. Being in a rented, self-drive car allows you the freedom to drive to Dhanushkodi, after your visit to Rameswaram. You don’t depend on public transport nor are you in the car with a stranger, which you would be if you hire a taxi.
The temples here are known for their unique and fascinating architecture. The Navagraha temples, in Kumbakonam, dedicated to the nine planets (one of the nine temples is in Karaikkal) are a stunning example of Dravidian architecture. Other temples that every visitor to this southern state must visit are the Meenakshi Temple, Madurai, Brihadeeswara Temple, Thanjavur, Rock Fort Temple in Tiruchirappalli and those in Rameswaram, Chennai and Kanchipuram.
The wildlife sanctuaries in the state are a must-visit too. We recommend Top-Slip, Annamalai Tiger Reserve, Madumalai National Park and the Guindy National Park. And while you are touring these regions, we suggest you take a detour and visit the Nilgiris, Kodaikanal, Kotagiri, Pollachi and Yercaud. Nestled in the Western Ghats, these hill towns are known for their scenic beauty – lakes, waterfalls, lush greenery, forests and wildlife.
