TAMIL ENCHANTMENT BUDGET TOUR PACKAGE

5 Nights / 6 Days

Visit some of the most popular tourist spots in Tamil Nadu. This tour takes the coastal route along the Bay of Bengal from Chennai to Pondicherry, moving inland to lush Kariakudi region - its world famous cuisine is a "must try". Temples galore in Tanjore & India's oldest city - Madurai. A great Tamil trip from beaches and marinas to temple towns steeped in ancient history.

Itinerary Route: Mamallapuram - Pondicherry - Tanjore - Madurai

Day 1: Chennai to Mamallapuram (2 hour drive)

You will be greeted by a Tour Packages India Representative and then driven to Mamallapuram where you'll spend the next two nights. Venture down to the beach and treat yourself to fresh fish in beachside restaurants while listening to the sounds of the surf.

Day 2: Mamallapuram

Spend the day sightseeing. By far and away, the most popular tourist attraction is Arjuna's Penance - one of the largest bas relief works of art in existence - carved out of the hillside rock it never fails to impress. Mamallapuram is famous as a pilgrimage town as well as being the seat of stone carving in South India and you'll see evidence of this especially on the way to the Five Rathas. Don't miss the Shore Temple, a rare item as it's the only monument in Mamallapuram "constructed" as opposed to being carved out of the rocky terrain of the town.

Day 3: Mamallapuram to Pondicherry (2 hour drive)

Take a drive down the coast to the former French colony of Pondicherry. Along the way, stop in Auroville and pay a visit to the Matrimandir - an architectural marvel as well as the point from which all things in Auroville radiate - solar-powered, peaceful, welcoming, beautiful surroundings. In Pondicherry, enjoy the rocky beachfront which leads down to the Sri Aurobindo Ashram, a beautiful example of French-influcenced architecture.

Day 4:  Pondicherry to Tanjore (5 hour drive)

Proceed to Tanjore - the rice bowl of Tamil Nadu - which also enjoys the reputation of being the cultural center of Tamil Nadu. Tour the town and see the Brihadishwara Temple (Big Temple) - the most important place to see due to it's marvelous architecture and gardens. Pay a visit to the Palace & Saraswathi Mahal Library which houses ancient Tamil and Sanskrit manuscripts. The Siva Ganga Garden is wonderful little park for family outings - train rides and boat rides are available.

Day 5: Tanjore to Madurai (3 hour drive)

Arrive in Madurai and spend the day touring the city. Don't miss the Meenakshi Temple, the Koodal Alagar Temple, Thiruparankundram, Gandhi Museum, and the Kazimar Big Mosque and Maqbara. Catch the evening Sound and Light Show at the Thirumalai Nayak Palace.
