Holidays - Southern India

South India is a geographic and linguistic-cultural region of India. South India traditionally includes the entire Indian Peninsula south of the Satpura and Vindhya ranges and Narmada River, encompassing the Deccan plateau (from the Sanskrit word dakshina, meaning south), the Eastern and Western Ghats, and the coasts between the Ghats and the sea. It is at India's peninsular tip, where the Muslim influence was evanescent. Hinduism in South was least altered by the external influence and is at its most exuberant. The Temple towns of South are quite unlike those of the North and superbly Vibrant. South India basically covers the four Indian states of Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka, Kerala and Tamil Nadu and the Union Territory of Pondicherry. The South India tourist destinations are tourism hot spots offering a right blend of wildlife, beaches, temples, history, landscapes that allure millions of tourists every year. The backwaters of Kerala, pristine beaches of Lakshadweep, temples of Tamil Nadu, the wildlife belt of the Mudumalai and Bandipur forests, the world heritage sites of Karnataka is what makes the visit to South India a perfect vacation.
