South India Heritage with Goa Tour

Relatively being untouched and unaffected by successive waves of Muslim invaders, Tamil Nadu could preserve its ethos, culture and rich monumental heritage. Centuries old customs, sky-high ornate temples, classical dance form of Bharatnatyam and traditional Carnatic music literature can be observed in its pristine form.

Karnataka unfolds a great synthesis of North India and South India and is visible in marvelously carved temples of Hampi, Aihole and Pattadakal. See a whole complex of shrines dating back to 5th century, resplendent with bizarre carvings in which the subject, frozen in movement, appears to have lived yesterday and all of them telling the great Indian stories of the epics 'Ramayana' and 'Mahabharata'. Gods, dancers, kings, fortune tellers and legions of attendants tell in sun-warmed stone the great story of early Hinduism.

With ultimate relaxation in Goa makes the South India Heritage with Goa Tour an exotic and lifetime experience.
