The state of Tamil Nadu is the heritage hub of the Indian South.

 

The word Tamil Nadu literally means “Tamil Country,” as the Tamil people make up the majority of the state’s population. They are considered to be Dravidian people—one of the earliest settlers in the Indian subcontinent who pre-date the arrival of the so-called Aryans from the Central Asian Steppes.

As the land of an ancient people, Tamil Nadu is a state that oozes rich historical heritage and teems with landmarks— 4 of which are recognized as UNESCO World Heritage Sites. With a projected population of over 76 million, Tamil Nadu is the sixth-largest state in India in terms of population.

Its capital Chennai is one of India’s most modern and bustling metropolis. It is the nerve center for the region’s commerce, trade, IT and educational prowess.

Frequently Asked Questions

The Meenakshi Amman Temple (also known as Arulmigu) located in the holy city of Madurai is arguably the most visited site in the state of Tamil Nadu.

Dedicated to Lord Shiva and the goddess Meenakshi, this temple is one of the most important spiritual sights in the Hindu tradition. A pilgrimage to the Meenakshi Amman Temple (at least once in your life) is considered an article of faith.

Other important tourist sites in Tamil Nadu are the Great Living Chola Temples, the UNESCO World Heritage Site town of Mahabalipuram and the Mudumalai National Park.

Tamil Nadu is an ancient realm rich in heritage and history. It is the home of the Dravidian people, original inhabitants of India, who were pushed down south by the Aryans who arrived from the Central Asian Steppes and Eurasian heartland around 2,000 BC.

The state is important not just not for its culture, history and heritage but also due to its spirituality and religious significance.

Many of the greatest sites of the Hindu faith (including the sacred city of Madurai – second perhaps in terms of important to Varanasi) are located in this state.

So, if Kerala (Tamil Nadu’s most popular neighbour) state draws visitors to its beaches and backwaters, Tamil Nadu attracts tens of thousands of tourists, pilgrims and visitors to its great temples, ancient allure and UNESCO World Heritage Sites.

Tamil Nadu is a coastal state with a tropical climate. The best time to visit, therefore, is in the winter (November to early March).

Summer and Monsoon (Mid-March to September/early October) are intense, hot and humid.

The Tamil cuisine typically features lentils, legumes, lots of rice and meat (unlike the north of India, fewer people in the Indian South are vegetarian).

The staple dish is Tamil Nadu is Idli—a grind mixture of soaked rice and white lentils. Another staple is Sambar which is the South India answer to the North India Daal (pulse). It is made out of a mix of various vegetables, spices and pulses. Dosa, a thin savory pancake made from fermented lentils (taken with chutney and Sambar) is also very popular.

It’s pretty easy. You can get to Tamil Nadu by air, by road and by train. The terrain is quite smooth and there is not going to be much trouble for you to get to Tamil Nadu.
BY AIR: If you are travelling by air, just hop on a plane to Chennai International Airport from anywhere in the world (or any domestic airport in India).

BY TRAIN: The South Railway of India covers Chennai and adjoining parts of Tamil Nadu. Trains from all major parts of India commute between Chennai and back.

BY ROAD: If you are travelling by road from Kerala or the North, a network of National Highways (NH 47, 49, 208 and 220) gets you to Chennai.

Just make sure that you choose to travel on high-end long-distance trains (called Express and Mail) — not on slow-moving low-end or budget regional trains.
