If you want to witness authentic and true culture of India, you must visit South India. We are saying this because the North Indian culture is affected by Central Asian and Middle East culture due to infiltrations in the history.
The South India map shows the states of Kerala, Tamil Nadu, Karnataka, Telangana and Andhra Pradesh. Apart from these states, Puducherry, a union territory and two Islands, Lakshadweep and Andaman & Nicobar are also the part of South India.
The beauty of South India can be described through lush green forests, unpolluted and beautiful beaches, hill stations, majestic temples, and immaculate beaches. These four naturally occurring and diverse terrains make up the Southern India.
All the states have scenic beauty, the exquisite architecture, sacred temples and exotic beaches. The ancient and medieval cities like Chennai, Kanchipuram, Mahabalipuram, Pondicherry, Chidambaram, Tanjore, Trichy, Madurai, Periyar, Kottayam, Kumarakom, Kochin, Trivendram, Bangalore, and Hyderabad and hill stations such as Ooty and Munnar are the must see places in Southern India.
The world heritage centers, beaches, hill stations, and national parks/wildlife sanctuaries are illustrated on this tourist map.
Best time to travel South India
The best time to visit tropical South India is during the winter months, but even then there are some distinct regional variations.
The peak season is from December to February when the climate is at its most pleasant. Kerala has the least humidity at this time. It is dry and daytime temperatures range from 22 to 30’C. The hill stations, such as Munnar, are cooler and you will need some warm cloths in the morning and evening. Temperatures and humidity begin to build from late March. The monsoon rains fall from May to October in Kerala and on the east coast of Tamil Nadu they extend through to November which is the wettest month, though it is best to carry an umbrella and be prepared for shower at any time.
