Tourist Places In Tamil Nadu

Only those who haven’t been to Tamil Nadu will find hard to believe that it’s the most visited state in India, not just South India. With over 4,000 years of cultural history, the southernmost state in India features some of the most stunning temple architecture and living tradition of music & dance in the country. Let’s take a closer look at the best tourist places in Tamil Nadu.

There is no dearth of top places in Tamil Nadu, be it a holiday or a honeymoon. The capital of Tamil Nadu, Chennai is one of the four major metropolises in India. Formerly known as Madras, the city is known for its beaches, ancient Tamil architecture, colonial history, and cultural festivals. One of the top attractions in Chennai, Marina Beach is the longest urban beach in the country. Referred as the Manchester of South India, Coimbatore is one of the most visited cities in Tamil Nadu. Madurai, the cultural headquarters of the state, is also known as Athens of the East for being the oldest city in Tamil Nadu. Sri Meenakshi Temple, Thirumalai Nayak Mahal, and Gandhi Memorial Museum are top attractions in Madurai.

Thanjavur finds itself among the top in the list of popular historical places in Tamil Nadu. A vital centre of South Indian art and architecture, the city is renowned for Tanjore paintings and for producing exquisite handicrafts. One of the popular places to visit in Tamil Nadu, Thanjavur’s musical legacy rightly receives plenty of attention from travellers.

Among the top tourist places in Tamil Nadu for a honeymoon, Ooty is situated 2,240 metres above the sea level in the Nilgiris Hills of Tamil Nadu. Caressing the border with Kerala, Ooty or Udhagamandalam is a popular hotspot for newlyweds and families. With the natural beauty of tea states, green rolling mountains, and sprawling grasslands, Ooty ranks high among the summer tourist places in Tamil Nadu.

Another one of the hill stations of Tamil Nadu, Coonoor lies only 19 km from Ooty at an altitude of 1930 metres. With a jaw-dropping view of the Nilgiri Hills and the Catherine Falls, Coonoor is an ideal place for a romantic rendezvous in Tamil Nadu. It’s hard to oversee Kodaikanal when listing top 10 tourist places in Tamil Nadu. The Princess of Hill stations is among the top destinations in Tamil Nadu for trekking, boating, and horseback riding. After exploring the Western Ghats in Tamil Nadu, visit Yercaud in the Eastern Ghats. Known for evergreen forests and coffee plantations, it is one of the best trekking places in Tamil Nadu.  

Call it Pondicherry or Puducherry, the allure of Frech culture and Cajun cuisine in this scenic coastal town never fades away. Dhanushkodi Temple & Beach and Pamban Bridge are major tourist attractions in Rameswaram, which is considered one of the holiest places in India. Dedicated to Lord Shiva, Ramanathaswamy Temple is one of the 12 Jyotirlinga sites in India.

Trace history of Tamil Nadu by visiting ancient Hindu Temples built by Chola and Pallava kings. UNESCO has listed these magnificent temples, with Dravidian architecture, as the world heritage sites in Tamil Nadu. The Brihadishwara Temple in Thanjavur and the Airavateswara temple in Darasuram along with the Group of Monuments at Mahabalipuram or Mamallapuram are some of the most famous temples in Tamil Nadu for not just devotees but art lovers.

    Tirupati

    Hari's 4 days trip to Tamil Nadu

    Travel agent Mr Raj, customized the itinerary according to our travel plan. Hotels in Madurai and Rameshwaram are good. But Gopinivas grand hotel in Kanyakumari is very bad. It is very dusty, curtains are untouchable, bedsheets are not changed and even contains blood stains of previous customers. Ca
    b driver was polite and helpful, but he is not aware of the temple timings and misguided in Madurai and Rameswaram. This led to wastage of time and we are not able to cover 3 places. Overall this is a great trip except the hotel in Kanyakumari.

    Everything is good but the hotel room is small and price is too high for that small room

    Sasimenon

    Sasimenon's 4 days trip to Tamil Nadu

    Everything was good and memorable. All the two hotels choosen was too good. We enjoyed more staying in hotel rather than visiting outside. But from "travel traingle" side preparation was very less. Because on the first day itself we had to wait 3 hours to get the pickup from railway station where
    it was promised an on time pickup. My family ar new to tirupati and don't know what will happen when we go there. Neither the travel traingle made any preparation and driver who came with us didn't know nothing. We just went there and came back without darshan . Travel traingle should have given us heads up or made a reservation from their end , that's why we hired you since we are not familiar and don't have time to look after these. In short Tirupati trip was a flop. Pondicherry trip is what we enjoyed very much drivers like Suresh , Mohammad Bai , Arun was really supportive and smart within limited time they showed us everything. I will say they were more prepared to receive us which travel traingle lack. Please correct these mistakes so that in future customers don't regret choosing travel triangle Best memories were Auroville and Mango forest of pondicherry and also the climate at tirupati
