South India: The Peninsular Land of Dravidian Culture


South India is the Lower Most Peninsular Portion of India. As per the Political Map, South India consists of Four Indian States which are Tamil Nadu, Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka and Kerala. All the states of South India are well connected by Air, Road and Rail.

Tamil Nadu consists of places like State Capital Chennai, Kanniyakumari and Ooty. Kanniyakumari is situated in the Southern Most tip of Tamil Nadu and is also considered as the last point of Main Land India. Ooty is an attractive Hill Station of Tamil Nadu with Coimbatore as its Base Station. Andhra Pradesh consists of various places like State Capital Hyderabad, Tirupati and Warangal. Hyderabad has its twin city Secunderabad adjacent to it and is a developed IT City. Tirupati is a renowned Pilgrimage Destination and Warangal is an important city known for its ancient structures. Karnataka consists of various places like State Capital Bengaluru, Mangalore and Mysore. Bengaluru is also a developed IT City and is a competitor to Secunderabad. Mysore is also a beautiful and ancient city of Karnataka. Kerala consists of places like State Capital Thiruvananthapuram, Kozhikode and Kochi.  Kerala is also fondly known as God’s Own Country.

All these Four South Indian States are very well connected by the Indian Railways Network. The Rail Network spanning the Coast Line States of Kerala, Karnataka, Goa and Maharashtra is known as the Konkan Railways. This Rail Network lies between Roha in Maharashtra and Mangalore in Karnataka via West Indian State of Goa.

The Road and Aviation Network between these Four South Indian States is also very good. The appropriate time for visiting South India is between November and March when humidity is under control and temperatures are low. Thus, traveling to South India can be a great experience to visit hill stations, beaches and temples all at once in cities like Vishakhapatnam and Chennai.
