Immerse yourself in the many sights, cultures and colours of South India.


This 15-day adventure takes in the diversity and spectacle of India from Chennai to Mumbai.

Start your journey in Chennai, also known as Madras. A stop at the Government Museum helps put some perspective on your discoveries before exploring Georgetown, Britain’s first Indian outpost, the modern downtown core, and the historic eastern section of the city. A more spiritual side of India awaits at your next stop, Kanchipuram, home to beautiful temples and 58 shrines.

Stop overnight in Mahaballipuram, with time to visit the Shore Temple. This city is actually a World Heritage site with some amazing archaeological remains. Going on to Pondicherry, you’ll find even a French influence has worked its way into India. Broad boulevards, bakeries and Mediterranean style houses are common here, but there’s more to the city than its imported culture. This is home to a spiritual community established by Shri Aurobindo, a prominent Indian philosopher and yogi through the first half of the 20th century. You’ll also explore the Gothic Church of the Sacred Heart of Jesus.

A more traditional style of Indian spirituality can be found at the Thilali Natrajah Temple, Dedicated to the Hindu god, Shiva. You’ll visit here on your way to Tanjore, the ‘Rice Bowl of Tamil Nadu.’ Going on to Madurai, visit the Ganapati Temple complex (Bring comfy shoes. The sights here are worth the climb!). Later in the evening, observe a sacred Aarti ceremony at the Meenakshi Temple, then return during the day to see this architectural marvel in detail.

Thekaddy lets you see a very different side of India, one that boasts some of the world’s most colourful wildlife. You have an excellent chance of spotting endangered species here, particularly at dawn. Your onward journey takes you through sleepy villages and rice paddies for a glimpse of everyday India before you reach Cochin, one of the country’s most relaxed ports. A morning tour takes you to the highlights including the Paradesi Synagogue (we told you India’s diversity was endless). In the evening, a Kathakali dance performance will exhilarate you. You’ll even have a chance to see the artists getting ready before the show.

Finally, fly to Mumbai, the modern commercial hub of India and centre of the country’s Bollywood film industry. This is a huge city packed with sites, and an afternoon tour will help you make the most of your time. Even in Mumbai, there is room for tradition. Snap a quick photo of the laundrymen at work at dhobi ghats, then finish your tour at the majestic Gateway of India. A morning cruise out to Elephanta Island is your last planned activity, but you’ll have a full afternoon at leisure to explore the energy and colour of Mumbai.

Day 1

Arrive Chennai

Welcome to Chennai or Madras, also known as the Gateway to Southern India. Like other state capitals such as Mumbai and Calcutta, it is a modern creation, founded by the East India Company in 1639, just north of the ancient Tamil port of Mylapore and the Portuguese settlement of San Thome. A fortified trading post, Fort St. George, was quickly erected, and over the course of the next century the city flourished, expanding rapidly to absorb many surrounding villages.

The museum has a fine archaeological section representing all the major south Indian periods including Chola, Vijayangar, Hoysla and Chalukyas. The bronze image of Ardhnariswara (Shiva and Parvathy) is an eye-catching one.

This afternoon you will explore majestic Chennai, established by the British as their seat of power, and boasting many "Splendours of the Raj." You'll get an introduction to all three of the main areas -- Georgetown, site of the first British outpost in India; central Chennai, the modern, commercial heart of the metropolis; and the eastern section, with its interesting old quarters and its long straight Marine Drive.

Your first stop is Fort St. George, built by the British as their stronghold, the fort was the first structure in Madras town, and the first territorial possession of the British in India. Continue to St. Mary's Church, constructed with thick walls and a strong vaulted roof to withstand the city's many sieges. The city is full of monumental buildings, as you will see as you drive past the magnificent High Court and cruise the Marine Drive, along one of the longest city beaches in the world.

Visit the celebrated Kapaleeshwarar Temple. Seventh century Tamil poet-saints sang the praises of the celebrated Kapaleeswara Temple; the present structure, dedicated to Lord Shiva, probably dates from the 16th century. The shore road takes you to the Basilica of San Thome, a neo-Gothic church with a barrel-vaulted ceiling, built on the site of earlier churches possibly erected by Nestorian Christians from Persia during the 10th century.

Cochin Sightseeing

Most of Cochin's historic buildings are in Fort Cochin, constructed by Portugal's Alfonzo de Albuquerque in 1500. Albuquerque arrived with half a dozen ships bearing settlers and five friars, and built the first European church in India, St. Francis Church.

The large, graceful Chinese fishing nets that line the shore of Fort Cochin are probably the single most familiar image of Kerala. Chinese Fishing Nets were actually introduced by traders from the court of Kublai Khan. They cantilever over the harbour, and operate by a system of weights and levers. The nets, on wooden frames, are raised periodically to check the catch.

Visit the Pardesi Synagogue, a tiny but delightful structure built in 1568. They then continue to Mattancherry or "Dutch Palace" which houses a remarkable series of murals rich in color and with painstaking detail. The surrounding area still called Jew Town and time is spent in exploring a fascinating mix of antique shops, warehouses, and spice auction rooms. Signs for N.X. Jacob's tailor shop, and the offices of J.E. Cohen serve as reminders of a once thriving community -- now consisting of about seven families.

Late this afternoon you will proceed to a local theatre and witness a Kathakali dance performance - one of the oldest theatre forms in the world. It originated in the area of southwestern India now known as the state of Kerala. It is a well-developed dance-drama, where the actors depict characters from the epics Ramayana and Mahabharata.

Enjoy a photo stop at to the dhobi ghats. Even if you are not interested in other people's dirty laundry, you'll be fascinated by this sight. The dhobi is a traditional laundryman who collects your dirty linen which is then soaped, soaked, boiled, beaten, and thrashed. The next day, after being dried it is, pressed, folded and neatly wrapped into bundles and returned from whence they came.

Thereafter you will visit Mani Bhavan which was Gandhi's Bombay base between 1917 and 1934.
