Place Details

Mysore

Indias iconic Mughal tomb fully merits its reputation as the worlds most exquisite building. Agras heart-stopping centerpiece needs little introduction. Rising from the brown-ochre river banks on the southeast fringes of the city like a vision of heaven, the Taj Mahal is the worlds most ethereal building, and the ultimate monument to romantic love. Having admired the white-marble masterpiece in different lights, venture further north to see the tomb as it would have looked to its creator, the Mughal emperor Shah Jahan, whiling away his last years incarcerated in the gilded apartments of Agra Fort. A welcome respite from the citys frenzied streets is the exquisite tomb of Akbar, on the northern outskirts,

Madurai

For sheer visual impact, no Hindu temple in South India can match the magnificence of the Meenakshi Sundareswarar in Madurai. The gigantic, multi-colored gopuram towers of the Fish-Eyed Goddess rise 151 ft (46 m) above the citys streets, writhing in stucco figures of gods, saints, demons and mythical monsters. The great pyramids, however, are merely an overture to the wonders enclosed below, where a labyrinth of richly carved pillared halls, colonnaded walkways and interlocking courtyards host a never-ending round of rituals. Although now a sprawling modern city with a population of over one million, this atmospheric town, with its lively covered bazaars area and traditional udipi restaurants, remains one of the Indias undisputed highlights.

Tanjore

The Kaveri (Cauvery) Delta of central Tamil Nadu was the heartland of the mighty Chola Dynasty, whose towering temples stand as south Indias defining monuments. One of the greatest of these giant shrines is Brihadwshwara in the town of Thanjavur (Tanjore) a soaring pyramid of granite, exquisitely constructed and embellished with inscriptions and carvings of deities which look almost as fresh today as they must have during the reign of Rajaraja I, who commissioned them. Elsewhere in this bustling Tamil town, the impressive Durbar Hall of the Royal Palace Complex stands as a reminder of the glory days of the Nayak Kings of the 16th and 18th centuries, while in the same compound, the towns Art Gallery holds an extraordinary collection of Chola bronzes.

Puducherry

A welcome respite from the citys frenzied streets is the exquisite tomb of Akbar, on the northern outskirts, which rises from parkland grazed by gazelles and black-faced langur monkeys – like a picture from a Mughal miniature. The ghostly ruins of the palace complex the great Mughal emperor built, after his conquest of Gujarat, on a ridge 28 miles (45 km) southwest at Fatehpur Sikri is Agras other obligatory day trip.

Mahabalipuram

Thousands of years before the British first landed on the Coromandel Coast, merchants ships were setting sail from a city south of Chennai to ports as far afield as the Malacca Straits. Known as Mamallapuram (or Mahabalipuram), the town was praised by both Periplus and Ptolemy for its wealth and sophistication. Marco Polo enthused about the Seven Great Pagodas that rose from its shore, a skyline hewn from solid granite by the Pallava Dynasty in the 7th century AD.
Numerous vestiges of this golden era survive amid the giant humpback boulders looming above the modern village. Rangingfrom shrines sculpted in the form of rathas (temple chariots), to mandapas (cave sanctuaries) and giant open-air reliefs, they include the world-famous Shore Temple. As well as being filled with superb antiquities, Mamallapuram is also a great place to unwind. A string of small resort hotels facing the beach make the most of their breezy location under the palms, while local restaurants do a brisk trade in fresh lobster, tiger prawns and other fresh seafood.
