About This Trip

Spend ten days discovering South India's beauty! Before moving on to Pondicherry to view the major sites, begin your journey in Mamallapuram to explore the Shore Temple. After that, you'll travel to Thanjavur, which is well-known for its 11th-century Brihadeeswara Temple. Before going to Madurai to witness the renowned Meenakshi Amman Hindu shrine, explore the city of Trichy's rich cultural and architectural past. You can see tigers and other exotic species at Periyar's Tiger Reserve. The highlight of your trip will be a houseboat journey through Alleppey's backwaters. Take a tour of Cochin's top attractions to wrap up your trip.
