Temple Visits & Tour Highlights
Madurai: Tamil Nadu’s cultural capital and one of India’s oldest inhabited cities, Madurai is also known as ‘Athens of the East and the ‘city of nectar’. Planned and built in the shape of a lotus, it was ruled by Pandya kings for the longest time. Home to many important old temples, it is flocked by devotees from all over the world. Some of the most well-known temples include Meenakshi Amman Temple which is dedicated to the goddess Meenakshi, Thiruparankundram, a hill temple dedicated to Lord Muruga or Karthikeya, Mariamman Teppakulam Temple, etc. Apart from holy temples, the city also boasts a wealth of cultural heritage and natural beauty, making it a much-loved tourist destination.
Rameshwaram: Located on a beautiful island in Tamil Nadu separated from Sri Lanka by a small Pamban channel, Rameshwaram is often hailed as ‘Benaras of the South. Holding a special place in Hindu mythology, it is considered to be the sacred place where Lord Rama created a bridge across the sea to Sri Lanka. It also houses one of our country’s most venerated and most visited Shiva shrines at Ramanathaswamy Temple which has the longest corridor in the world. The abandoned town of Dhanushkodi is also a unique tourist attraction.
Kanyakumari: The southernmost tip of the Indian peninsula, Kanyakumari is a small coastal town bordered by the three seas – Arabian Sea, Indian Ocean and the Bay of Bengal. The mountainous terrain, the coconut trees, the paddy fields, and the beauty of the water bodies truly make this destination a sight to behold. Apart from the gorgeous waterfalls and enthralling natural beauty all around, Kanyakumari is also famous for its authentic South Indian cuisine, iconic monuments such as the Vivekananda Rock Memorial, and holy temples.
Trivandrum: Kerala’s capital city, Trivandrum is a beautiful place on seven hills that combines a firmly rooted Indian heritage with a nostalgic colonial legacy. A gateway to nearby popular beach destinations, it is mostly known for architectural monuments and art galleries.
