South India Tour Experience
South India is a place of versatility. If you wanted to visit a place where expecting the people to be welcoming you with the brightest innocent smiles, straight away head ahead to South India. In south India we could enjoy the real spiritiual experience in the holy city of Tamilnadu, nature's beauty is enlivened in Kerala, Karnataka the origin of Coorg and Andhra Pradhash – where a new dimension is mixing up with the ancient culture and could enjoy visiting the various enriched monuments and will have excellent shopping melas and experiences. No one will forget Goa if visiting once – it is really a divine experience.

In Tamilnadu, we could see wonderfully built temples e.g. Madurai Meenakshi Amman Temple. This is a temple which is certainly beyond description. You will definitely be astonished by the ancient arts and sculptures that tell the stories of ancient days. Naadi Jothidam – A famous astrological experience awaits you in Kumba Konam and in Tanjore – where you will get all perfect predictions about your present and future events.

Once you are visiting, you won't forget the experience since I was not at all believing astrology wherein once I had my fingerprint checked and heard the predictions, terribly shocked to note that how accurate they have been by telling my husband's name, kids name and their age, date of birth, important events of life and lot more - I have heard about south Indian miracles during my childhood and this is certainly to be experienced by each and every individual.

Next comes here, the hillstations in Tamilnadu. Apart from the temples, nature invites you to "The Queen of hill station" - Ooty and places of interest near Mudumali wildlife sanctuary lies on the northern and north-western side of the Nilgiri (Blue Mountains), about 80 km north-west of Coimbatore in the extreme north-western corner of Tamil Nadu.

Kerala is God's own country with unique landscape, culture and back water paradise which is responsible for the popularity of this state. It offers excellent festivities and public ceremonies. I spent a whole night in the Kumarakom Boat House and have forgotten all my tensions and pressures and hearing the light whispering sounds of the River water. It is not to be told – but to be perfectly enjoyed and should not be missed out.

Hyderabad is the capital of Andrapradesh and also called as "Pearls City". If you are a lover of cosmetic jewelleries and much fond of antique designer jewels and various selections of ornaments gorgeously being created by using various pearls and jems, the best place of shopping is Hyderabad.

The world famous Lord Balaji Temple is located in Tirupati. Lord Balaju's Darshan used to said that once you are going to Tirupathi, it will be a turning point in your life. After the prayer I have got really a feeling of content and a satisfaction which could not be described in words. We have to stand in a queue to get the Darshan but the experience is worth. Millions of people visits this holy place everyday for Darshan. The most famous historical places like Charminar, Kolkonda Fort and Ramoji Film City.

Goa union territory is a beach paradise well known for its culture, cuisine and beaches. Beach parties are important events for vacation seekers like us who are coming from USA, UK and so on. I had a lovable ayurvedic massage and they used some aroma oils with exotic smell. Really loved it. Felt years younger after couple of hours taking this ayurvedic treatment. They have so many ayurvedic treatments to offer depends upon our special needs.

I have forgetten to mention about Aliyar Retreat in Coimbatore – where Guruji Jacki Vasudev teaches us many things towards having a healthy body and healthy mind. I stayed in a beautiful resort called Pearls Corniche Inn in Coimbatore and have gone for a small trekking nearby and enjoyed a traditional food and still my taste buds are longing for that.

In my personal experience, I really loved my South India travel program. Since I had only 11 nights to spend, I have missed so much and would certainly awaiting one more chance to visit South India where I wanted to spend two more nights in a luxury boat house, some yoga and meditation sessions and sure would like to get some ayurvedic special relaxation treatments and especially would like to taste the food at Pearls Corniche.
