Bursting with World Heritage sites, ancient history, exotic wildlife and home to its own classical language—Tamil Nadu is one of India's most distinctive regions. We offer plenty of Tamil Nadu hotels to make sure your stay in this part of India is comfortable and enjoyable.
Tamil Nadu is famous for its incredible Dravidian architecture and history. There are so many ancient sites it's hard to squeeze them all in but some of the very best have been awarded UNESCO World Heritage status and these are especially worth visiting. Brihadeeswarar Temple is one of the greatest pieces of Indian architecture and standing over 66 metres high it is also one of the most awe-inspiring. The detail and craftsmanship of the temple is staggering and it is not hard to see why this site is so precious. Airavatesvara Temple is another UNESCO site of intense detail although not as large as Brihadeeswarar. A fascinating temple of a slightly different variety is Shore Temple located on the coast of the Bay of Bengal.
If you feel a bit 'templed out', escaping to the fresh air and rich forests of Ooty Hill Station is a great way to relax. With rolling hills, mountainous peaks, tea estates, botanical gardens and stunning views, Ooty is understandably regarded as the 'Queen of hill stations'. Situated approximately 2200 metres above sea level, the cool climate and misty hills make this feel like a slice of the English countryside with a few exotic additions. Making the journey from one of our hotels in Tamil Nadu to the annual tea festival in Ooty is highly recommended for any lovers of the drink.
For a more genuine experience of Indian nature that isn't so colonial, Mudumalai National Park is a must. As a sanctuary for endangered species' including the elusive Bengal tiger and the Indian leopard this National Park is crucial for their survival. People often start a journey around Tamil Nadu from the bustling capital Chennai and from our Chennai hotels you can plan your itinerary around this glorious part of the country.
