Trip Details


Madurai or ‘Thoonga Nagaram’ (The city that never sleeps) is the cultural capital of Tamil Nadu with a strong Tamil history and is one of the seats of the Tamil Sangam literature. The city has been ruled by several kings including the Pandyas, Cholas, Madurai Nayaks and the British.

Hand painted floor tiles, mammoth luxurious mansions etched with Belgian glass and fine antiques from across the world, Traditional Tamil handloom mills, spicy food – Karaikudi is sure to overwhelm the senses of any traveler.

We then head to Rameshwaram – we cross the bridge from the mainland to this island, where people go to absolve themselves of their sins. But Rameshwaram is beyond its temples – the eerie history of Dhanushkodi, the inspiring abode of Late President Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam – the place has this and more to offer.

Note: We can customize for travelers arriving from other cities.
