WHAT WILL YOU DISCOVER
Six days of adventure to discover Chettinad and its mansions and palaces recently declared World Heritage by the UNESCO.
From the historical and eternal Pondicherry, the former French territory also known across the country as the “little France of India”, you drive to Tranquebar and its temple surrounded by the sea; the city seems to have been forgotten by time with its charming streets and colonial buildings; here everything seems unreal. It is only through the visit of Dansborg Fort that history is gradually making sense.
You leave the old Danish, English and French colonies to explore the ancient kingdom of Chettiars, these rich local merchants, who made their wealth under the British Raj. They left behind magnificent mansions that today constitute a unique heritage. The Chettinad is also rich of rare antiques that will delight amateurs.
The power of history never stops in India; you then visit thanjavur and the the Brihadeswara temple, one of the most beautiful active temples in the South.
