India, as a country, is built upon the pillars of Secularism. Even though Hinduism is a major religion, the minority is not far behind in their cultural contribution, to India. This is one of the major reasons, why there is a natural abundance in tourism centers spread far and wide across the topography. Southern India has contributed a lot to this cause by developing many a tourist havens from its infancy, and developed it over decades, to match World standards. A few of these exotic spots are discussed in brief as found below.
1. Kodaikanal: It was dubbed initially as the poor man’s Ooty, but developed into a hot tourism spot almost equivalent to that of Ooty. But nevertheless, Kodai as it colloquially called, earned its rightful title “Princess among Hill Stations” and we will see why.
There are two reasons why a hill station becomes a Tourist spot in Tamilnadu. One is that, the weather should be pleasant beyond April and up to July of the year. Kodai is definitely that. Apart from this, Kodai Lake is renowned for its clear waters and boating facilities. To add on, there are many places you can go trekking to with the help of the local guide, like Suicide point, Guna caves Etc. The stay is made more pleasant with a wide range of hotels, which would cater to your needs with Multi-cuisine foods.
2. Pondicherry: aka. Puducherry lies a few hundred kilometers from Chennai, Tamilnadu, and is a Union territory. It is the Tamil Culture that prevails there, but they have maintained the French colonies as it is, despite the fact, the invaders left the territory a long time back. Pondicherry is known for its beaches, the beautiful buildings from the colonial era, magnificent temples and Churches and Its nightlife. Aurobindo ashram is a very peaceful place, where even a pin dropped, would make noise and it is a meditation centre.
