Posted on

Unusual, strange, but after all true! None other than the New York Times has listed Tamil Nadu from India as the only Indian destination to visit in its list of ’52 places to go in 2016′. The southern state is placed in the 24th position and is believed to be the one that holds rich ties with Indian history, culture and religious activities, some of which are yet to be discovered.

While the northern part of India is applauded for its Mughal era forts and palaces, the south serves as a great gateway to historical Hindu temples. Rich in history and architecture, the temples magnificently draw the cultural brilliance of our country. The sprawling complex of Meenakshi Temple in Madurai and the Chola dynasty constructed Brihadeeswarar Temple in Thanjavur are some examples of intricate art carvings and ancient Indian architecture. Not only for this, but also for the breathtaking Western Ghats, Nilgiri Mountains, aromatic coffee and spice plantations and palm kissed beaches, Tamil Nadu is enlisted as the only Indian destination to be visited this year. Authentic South Indian food cooked with local spices and served on banana leaves spread the popularity of Tamil culture and traditional practices all across the world.

Other destinations included by New York Times in its list of ’52 places to go in 2016′ are Mexico City, France, North Dakota, Toronto and Abu Dhabi among others.

You can reserve Goa, Kerala or Rajasthan for later and as of now plan a vacation anywhere in Tamil Nadu.
