back to India


Churches & Temples of the South

Immerse yourself in India’s more spiritual side on this journey through the southern states of Tamil Nadu and Kerala. For centuries the regions aromatic spices were traded and these routes brought St. Thomas the Apostle, who landed on the Malabar Coast, at Malankara, in 52 AD. Why precisely in 52 is difficult to say, but this date is firmly held in the common traditions of the St Thomas Christians. On his arrival the Apostle converted several Brahmin families, from whom a good part of the present-day Nazranies descended, and founded seven churches.

With abundant natural beauty, the south remains a feast for the senses, with fragrant cuisines, friendly people and fascinating cultures. Observe the astonishing Pallava sculptures and towering Chola Temples of Tamil Nadu, the French colonial charms of Puducherry, tea plantations and Victorian heritage in the cooler climate of the Western Ghats and enjoy a leisurely houseboat cruise with lunch on the tranquil backwaters of Kerala.

Traders from different parts of the world including Portuguese, Dutch, Chinese, Greek, Romans, French and British all came here leaving their marks on Southern India’s unique culture. The legacy today being a fascinating blend of people from various sects of Christianity, Hindu and Islam all in an India still largely undisturbed by tourism.

For the latest and most up to date travel advice including entry requirements :

Health & wellbeing

Although at the time of writing there are no compulsory vaccinations required for travel to India. It is recommended that your Polio, Tetanus, Diphtheria and Hepatitis A immunisations are up to date. We will send up to date information on entry requirements and with your final paperwork approximately 14 days before departure.

Adequate insurance cover will be required for all hospital emergencies and doctors’ visits.


Southern India is close to the equator so temperatures remain fairly constant throughout the year. In hill country due to the altitude temperatures fall at night (by Indian standards). In Kerala, the winds from the backwaters and lagoon can make temperatures seem a few degrees cooler giving some relief. There are two rainy seasons. The main one, known as the southwest monsoon season begins around May or June and lasts until the end of September. During this time, southwestern monsoon winds result in periods of torrential rain which usually last for around three months on average.


Daytime dress is casual and as comfortable as possible. Cool cotton clothing is best and just a light cardigan for early mornings and late evenings for the two nights in hill country (Munnar) and inside some air-conditioned buildings. For evening meals, we recommend smarter casual dress. Some hotels will require that gentleman wear trousers and closed shoes for dinner and that ladies dress modestly with knees and shoulders covered.

On a few days, some historic sites and places of worship require that shoulders are covered, skirts extend below the knee and shoes are closed shoes and not sandals or flip flops. Some visits will require you to remove your shoes, therefore shoes that are easy to slip on and off are advisable. Our Local Guide will inform you the day before such visits are made so that you have the correct attire.


There is a certain amount of walking (and stairs) involved on a daily basis on this holiday so please make sure you pack comfy footwear for this so that you are prepared. Your Local Guide will keep you updated on a daily basis with what to expect the following day. If you are finding it difficult to keep up then please make sure you tell your Local Guide who can help you to find places to rest and relax and then you can re-join the group at a later stage.

Where possible we have added touches such as tuk tuk rides, boat rides, elevators to some temples and up hills to avoid stairs and excessive walking. This will still involve getting on bard these modes of transport and some deep steps are required as they may also be in some temples, pagodas, historical sights and embarking and disembarking form boats in Kerala. Boatmen and coach drivers are always on hand to assist.

Some streets in towns and cities that you will visit will have uneven surfaces or rough ground. We suggest you take a pair of comfortable shoes with good grips or trainers. For some guided walking tours, you must be prepared to be on your feet for up to 90 minutes. In some areas, there will be a number of steps to climb (some uneven) and not always a handrail.
