The rich history and architectural heritage of South India never fails to mesmerise both national and international tourists. It is starkly different from North India in every aspect, be it food, language, architecture, culture, dressing style or festivals. One can almost imagine it as a country within a country. The heritage left behind by the mighty ancient kingdoms, the scenic hill stations, exquisite rock temples, beaches and aromatic coffee and cardamom plantations are only some of the attractions of South India. Adventure and water sports, mouth-watering cuisines and never-ending parties give it a more modern twist that is essential to experience and difficult to forget.
