Nadu is a wonderful tourist place. It has natural beauty i.e.blue
beaches and clear skies. People enjoy the peace amidst the lively
and magnificent temples. There are more than 30,000 temples in Tamil
Nadu, which has given the state the distinctive title of 'A Land
of Temples'. Built by various dynasties these temples bear a superficial
resemblance to each other in that they share the same physical features
- the gopuram or the imposing tower over the entrance and the spacious
halls and corridors.
of the Tamils presents an exciting pageant of a powerful civilization
whose origin dates back to ancient times. It is clear that the Tamils,
who belong to the Dravidian race, were the first major occupants
of the country and settled in the north-western part of India long
before the coming of the Indo-Aryans. Excavations have revealed
that the features of the people of the Indus Valley Civilization
bore a strong resemblance to this race.
For the tourists, most important point to remember about Tamil Nadu
is the rainy season between October and December when the northeast
monsoon brings rain here. Throughout the year for the plains, cotton
is the best wear. In the hilly areas, you will need to carry a light
sweater or two, heavier woollens are a must for winter. Umbrellas
are extremely needed during the hottest months and raincoats will
come in handy between October and December i.e. the rainy season.
The best time to visit to Tamil Nadu is between November and March

and Kerala in the west. The eastern and western tips of the state
