Tamil Nadu is the southernmost state of India. Tamil Nadu is bordered by the Indian Ocean and Bay of Bengal, resulting in beautiful beaches. More than ten rivers flow within this state making it one of the most fertile lands in the country. Concerning scenic beauty, Tamil Nadu is on par with states like Karnataka. With the Nilgiri and Anamalai Hills towering over the state, it looks nothing less than impressive. It also shares a maritime border with Sri Lanka.
Regarding historical structure, Tamil Nadu is blessed. The state is mentioned in epics like Ramayana. There are 33,000 temples here, built in the impressive Dravidian architectural style. Also, Archaeological Survey of India has found that settlements in Tamil Nadu were one of the oldest in the Indian Peninsula. Tamil Nadu was rich in art and cultural forms since time immemorial. Evidence of their culture is found in their text belonging to that era: Sangam Literature.
With all that being said, there is definitely a lot to see in Tamil Nadu. But if you’re in a hurry, I’m going to list down five places in this state that you should visit.
