    Beginning Chennai, this special South India Pilgrimage Tour takes you to Mahabalipuram lying on the Coromandel Coast which faces the Bay of Bengal.

Visit and explore the temples and monuments that mark the legendary history of the place. Then visit the former French Colony of Pondicherry and walk through the renowned Sri Aurobindo Ashram and experience the serenity of its beaches and backwaters. Further explore the great Brihadeshwara Temple in Tanjore, one of the most magnificent Chola temples in India, and the Art Gallery and Saraswati Mahal library houses placed in the Tanjore Palace.
