Magical South India
South India lies in the peninsular Deccan Plateau and is bounded by the Arabian Sea in the west, the Indian Ocean in the south and the Bay of Bengal in the east. The geography of the region is diverse, encompassing two mountain ranges, the Western and Eastern Ghats, and a plateau heartland. The Temple towns of South India are quite unlike those of the North and a must see.

South India exudes a magic that draws travellers to it from far and wide and not without reason. The diversity it offers is awe inspiring, the colours vivid, the cultures varied, the monuments mesmerizing and the whole experience is an enthralling one. The soothing beaches, the balmy backwaters, the ancient port city, the melted cultures, the varied sights from varied cultures, all are blended finely to create a distinct identity – called south India.
