Tamil Nadu is a large province in the southeast part of India. They have their own language and alphabet, and as with many parts of India, a strong identity. For the traveler, one of the biggest attraction of Tamil Nadu is the spectacular temples. Some of the older ones below are well over a thousand years old. But it is typical of older temples to get covered or added on by newer sections, so most temples have older and more recent sections. The first three photos - and in particular the third one - are from a temple carved out of one wall of stone. The last photos on this page are from the very southern tip of India.
