Culture, we believe, is a living entity and can only be experienced by mingling with the locals - an experience which is diverse and equally fulfilling. Get to know about Kerala’s traditional dance form called Kathakalli. If you are a brave heart, then the martial art form called Kalaripayattu is probably what you are looking for. If sculptures have always fancied you, meet the artisans, who for generations after generations, have sculpted rocks and chiselled wood to create stunning handicrafts. If you seek cultural tours in India, it is incomplete without you travelling through India’s past – the forgotten temples, mosques and churches. We don’t just take you there; we also lace it up with stories from Indian history and mythology.
For something more mundane, we love visiting the local markets to meet the vegetable and fruit sellers and savour the locally grown fresh produce. And talking about food, the culture of the land can never be explained without the local cuisines; a plantain leaf meal loaded with multi-coloured goodies followed by a siesta is heavenly, we promise.
In between all this, throw in the famed Indian diversity and you have a million different expressions of culture. The myriad cultures and traditions have given birth to the multitude of dialects spoken across the country. Just among the 5 states of Southern India, the incredulous number of languages and dialects make it impossible to traverse and comprehend the meanings and rituals. It is important that you have a reliable local tour guide, to show you India in a way only Indians know about.
Stunning stone monuments await you everywhere in Southern India
