Tamil Nadu Tourist Spots & Travel Guide

Travel India Guide provides you with detailed information on Tamil Nadu, its major cities, tourist spots, maps and hotels. Relatively uninfluenced by foreign invaders, here much of ancient India survives in its purest form - in its customs, in its towering temple architecture, in its dances and costumes. Here life is more leisurely and more traditional. Magnificently sculptured temples, richly woven silks, colourful festivals, cool hill stations and wide beaches are but some of the attractions of this never-never land that is nevertheless one of the country's major industrial and agricultural States.

The city of Kanyakumari forms the last and southern-most city of india. Vellore forms a major medical hub for India with its state of the art and famous hospital. Salem acts as a major port for shipping services to and from India.

The History of the Tamils presents an exciting pageant of a powerful civilization whose origin dates back to ancient times. It is clear that the Tamils, who belong to the Dravidian race, were the first major occupants of the country and settled in the north-western part of India long before the coming of the Indo-Aryans.

Cuisines
Tamil Nadu provides the visitor with a wide variety of delicious food both for the vegetarians as well as the non-vegetarians, though most food in Tamil Nadu consists of grains, lentils, rice and vegetables.
