Largely untouched by would-be conquerors from the north, Tamil Nadu has firmly held on to its Dravidian identity – most notably via its collection of awe-inspiring temples. Dating from the ancient Chola, Pallava and Pandyan dynasties, they range from Mamallapuram’s modest Shore Temple to Madurai’s magnificent Meenakshi Amman complex. Discover both – and just about every monument in between – on this eye-opening north-to-south journey through one of India’s most awe-inspiring states.
