The South is ancient India in its purest form. Streets blaze with vivid colour and glorious temple cities are alive with rituals of age-old tradition. Stunning temple architecture, green paddy fields, dense forests, golden beaches, spice, tea and coffee plantations, sumptuous palaces, wild life sanctuaries, palm fringed waterways and a rich, artistic life expressed in the lyrical Bharata Natyam and Kuchipudi dances and in the intensely dramatic masked dance drama of Kathakali, all combine to offer surprising discoveries in this extraordinary part of India.
