  • This morning you will reach the meeting point in Madurai (place and time to be advised) and driven to Tanjore  (3.5 hours). This ancient city of Tanjore enjoys the distinction of having been the capital of Cholas — one of the greatest dynasties of the south India. The Cholas were great temple builders and Tanjore bears witness to this, being dotted with no fewer than 74 temples. Overnight in Tanjore.
  • Later in the day we will enjoy a tour of Tanjore - visiting Brihadishwara Temple and Tanjore Palace. 
  • Brihadishwara Temple - Brihadishwara Temple is the crowing glory of Chola architecture. This superb and fascinating monument is one of only handful in India with World Heritage listing. It has been worshipped continuously for more than 1000 years. 
  • Tanjore Palace - The Tanjore Palace has huge corridors, spacious halls, arsenal towers and a great collection of Tanjore Bronze sculpture.
  • Today we will drive to Pondicherry  (4 hours) - en route stopping over to visit the temples at Darasuram and Kumbhakonam.
  • Darasuram Temple - The Darasuram temple is a storehouse of art and architecture. The front mandapam of the temple is in the form of a huge chariot drawn by horses. The temple has some exquisite stone carvings.
  • Kumbhakonam Temple - Kumbakonam is a temple town with many Hindu temples located in and around it. There is a popular saying in Sanskrit that Kumbhakonam is more sacred than even Varanasi. Majority of the temples here are dedicated to Lord Vishnu and Lord Shiva.
  • After visiting the temples, we will continue to Pondicherry.  Pondicherry was a French colony at one time and its skyline from off-shore is typical of coastal French settlements as is its town planning. Overnight in Pondicherry.
  • Today we will enjoy a walking tour of Pondicherry followed by a visit to Aurobindo's Ashram.  Overnight in Pondicherry.
  • Walking tour of Pondicherry - We will start with French Town, an oval-shaped township with the streets aligned at right angles which is unlike any other Indian town. Its skyline from off-shore is typical of coastal French settlements as is its town planning. From here, we will continue to the Tamil Quarter, originally built around a nucleus of shrines. This part of the city has a contrasting architectural style, demonstrated in restored Tamil mansions which have unique elements like semi-public street verandahs for visitors outside the house, and inside, a central courtyard with grand columns. 
  • Aurobindo's Ashram - The Ashram is a spiritual community. It grew out of a small community of disciples who had gathered around Sri Aurobindo after he retired from politics and settled in Pondicherry in 1910.
  • Today we will drive to Chennai  (3.5 hours) - en route stopping over to visit Mahabalipuram. 
  • Mahabalipuram - Located just outside Madras city, Mahabalipuram (Mamallapuram) is a group of monumental rock-cut temples, set amidst palms trees on a long beach, washed by the Bay of Bengal. In fact, it is said that the story of south Indian stone architecture begins on the sandy beaches of Mahabalipuram and from here goes on to reach incredible heights in Kanchipuram, Thanjavur and Madurai.
  • After visiting Mahabalipuram, we will continue to Chennai.  Situated on the eastern coast of India, Chennai (earlier called Madras) is the fourth largest of the Indian cities, after Mumbai, Calcutta and Delhi. It used to be one of the bastions of the British Empire and a trading post for the East India Company. Overnight in Chennai.
  • Later in the day we will proceed for a sightseeing tour of Chennai - visiting Fort St. George and Kapaleeshwar Temple.

  • Fort St George - The Fort St. George, a 350-year-old fort with wide battlements is a reminder of the British Empire. Today, the old buildings in the fort house the Tamil Nadu State Government Secretariat and the Legislative Assembly. Within the fort complex, a number of other early buildings still stand, of which St. Mary's Church is the most interesting.
