You haven’t experienced India if you haven’t visited South India. Once serving as the crossroads for trade between the Mediterranean and east Asia, South India while imbibing all that the outside world has offered it, has yet evolved through the ages to a rhythm all its own. Its temples, synagogues, churches and palaces awe, its customs and traditions enchant (and at times bewilder), its restful landscapes soothe, its forests-draped mountains and wildlife enthrall, while its cities serve up a heady cocktail of the old and the new. What has made this part of the country a favored destination of travelers through the ages is the warm hospitality of its culture and people. Self possessed and serene, South India is where an age old tradition takes you by the hand and leads you into the heart of a timeless experience.
