Tamil Nadu Travel Guide

Before visiting this beautiful destination in South India, it’s helpful to learn a few details about Tamil Nadu. Carry a map of tourist places in Tamil Nadu for a hassle-free trip. Here is some more useful information about Tamil Nadu:

Food

South India, especially Tamil Nadu, has a wide range of delicious food for vegetarians as well as non-vegetarians. Most popular food items in Tamil Nadu are made from grains, lentils, rice, and fresh vegetables. However, spices are added to give a dish its distinctive taste. Spices are the main ingredient of Tamil Nadu food. The main food of Tamil Nadu varies from coastal areas to inland interior regions. While seafood is common in Chennai and Pondicherry, Tamil Nadu cuisine has different dishes to offer in hill regions.

Salem is renowned for its mangoes, Madurai is popular for milk dessert Jigarthanda, while Palani is known for Panchamirtham. The traditional food of Tamil Nadu is usually served on a banana leaf and is eaten with hand. Idli or dosa accompanied by sambhar or rasam are the highlights of Tamil cuisine. The special food of Tamil Nadu includes Santhakai, Chakkarai Pongal, Athirasam and Kuli Paniyaram.

Language

Tamil, one of the oldest classical languages, is the local language of Tamil Nadu. English is also a popular language in Tamil Nadu. Hindi is spoken and understood in major cities where the crowd is cosmopolitan. Most signboards and tourist information is written in Tamil along with English. The locals are fluent in basic English, if not in Hindi. So, there won’t be any major issues with language in Tamil Nadu.

Festivals

Pongal, the harvest festival of Tamils, is celebrated during the month of Thai in mid-January. Pongal is an important festival in Tamil Nadu, especially among the farmers. It is celebrated in Tamil Nadu over four days: Bogi Pongal, Uzhavar Thirunaal, Maatu Pongal, Kaanum Pongal. Natyanjali, celebrated in many Hindu Temples in Tamil Nadu, features classical Indian music and dance performances in February/March.

    Ashrivastava's 4 days trip to Tamil Nadu

    What a wonderful experience! Overall everything was Excellent. My best tour operator yet. The itinerary was carefully thought through and well balanced. This was the first time I made my booking through Travel Triangle and BookItForgetIt and I had a great and lifetime experience. Everything was smoo
    th and as per the plan. My trip was planned by Sahil and he was very professional and polite and was in touch throughout the journey. I have recommended his name to my friends and family for the upcoming travel plans. I would highly recommend his name for any trip plans. On special request, Driver was very professional, well trained, outstanding - passionate, informative, engaging and entertaining. He had a great knowledge of near by places/site scenes and mouth watering restaurants. Also, the stay in resort (booked as per my choice) was comfortable and beyond the expectations. Special Thanks to Sahil who carefully guided me for this trip especially at the Covid time when most of the spots was locked down. Thanks Travel Triangle for the wonderful experience. Keep up the good work and make your customer happy. Will catch you soon! Thanks again! – Arpit What a wonderful experience! Overall everything was Excellent. My best tour operator yet.
