Tamil Nadu is a southern state of India with lots of fabulous places to visit. Colorful and richly sculpted temples, ancestral ruins of Hindu temples, cosmopolitan and authentic cities, Tamil Nadu can be a great travel destination for those going to know South India.

1. Mamallapuram

Mamallapuram is a small village on the Indian coast with a fabulous atmosphere and good food. Mamallapuram invites to spend the night and spend a few days there. You can stay at the Meya Beach Walk Hotel. Do not miss the village but also the magnificent temples and monuments such as Costa's Temple, Penance of Arjuna, Panch Rathas, Temple excavated by Panch Pandara, Khrisna's Butterball, Khapna Mandapa, Temple of Olakkkanatha, Ganesh Ratha, Excavated Temple of Varaha, Temple excavated from Trimurdi, Adivaraha Excavated Temple, Temple excavated from Mahishasuramardini, Archaeological Museum, Tiger Cave (4 km) and Temple of Vedagirisvara (17 km)

2. Pondicherry

Pondicherry is a French colonial city founded in the 17th century. With an orthogonal plan and facing the Gulf of Bengal, the city has gardens, wide avenues, European mansions and Christian churches, mixed with Hindu temples. Do not miss the Pondicherry Museum, the Manakula Vinayakar Temple, the Aurobindo Ashram or the French School.

3. Auroville

8 km from Pondicherry is Auroville, a city created so that all people could live harmoniously. It is very popular with foreigners who seek a mystical India and live there in community. The community has 40 colonies and welcomes people from all over the world to volunteer and meditate.

4. Tanjore

Tanjore is one of the largest cities in South India, located in the Kaveli River Delta. Surrounded by rice fields, the city still has a beautiful fort, the Shivaganga Fort, the Brihadishvara Temple, a magnificent Hindu temple, the Church of Schwartz, a Christian church heritage of colonial times, a Royal Palace with a tower of fabulous viewing, museums and libraries.

5. Srirangam

This is one of the top religious sites in South India and it attracts thousands of pilgrims. This small island and its Temple of Ranganatha are filled with life on the festive occasions connected with the life of Vishnu. The temple is grand and by itself already deserves a visit but there is more to see, namely the Jambukeshvara Temple and the magnificent Kaveri River.

6. Madurai

Madurai is a still very preserved city of foreign glances. The magnificent Minakshi Sundareshvara Temple is the city's main monument and one of the most beautiful temples in India. The original temple dates from the seventh century and has 12 truly fabulous gopura, 50 meters high, and richly carved and painted in a colorful way. But beyond the temple, Madurai has so much more to offer. Do not miss the Thirumalai Nayaska Palace, the Anglican Cathedral, the Sultans' Tombs of the city, the Temple of Kadal Alagar, the fresh market where the banana coloring is done and the flower market.

7. Chennai

Chennai is the largest city in the state of Tamil Nadu and South India. The city is very cosmopolitan full of pollution and chaotic traffic. However, Chennai is nothing more than an urban cluster that united dozens of villages, many of them fishing, in a single urban spot. This makes every neighborhood of Chennai still live in a very rural way yet within the largest city in the region.
