Indian Pilgrimage Tour


India is the land of seers and saints. This is a land where tradition and modernity have fused seamlessly into one composite whole.

Under the circumstances more and more people are going for pilgrimmage tours to find peace of mind.

 

 

South India Temple Odyssey

Located on the seventh peak of the Tirupati Hill, Sri Venkateswara temple is perhaps the most sacred of South Indian temples. The term “Venkateswara” in local vernacular means Lord of the Venkata Hill. The temple is a classic example of South Indian temple architecture. The Tirupati temple is extremely valuable in terms of architectural genius that went into its making. The rock-cut rathas (chariots) of Mahabalipuram is magnificent in terms of its architectural beauty. The Shore Temple as its name suggests is situated on a rocky out-crop and is the most fascinating landmark that you will ever see anywhere in the world. The mandapas are decorated with sculptures of Gods, Goddesses and mythological figures. Of the seven most sacred cities of the Hindus, Kanchipuram is one of them. This city of a thousand temples is a fine pilgrimage spot and wherever you go in South India, the journey will remain incomplete without a visit to Kanchipuram.
