Something About South India
The South India's coastal plains are backed by the mountains
rimming the wedge of the Deccan plateau. On these plains lie
the best beaches in South India. On the rimming mountains,
the western and eastern ghats are the tea, coffee and spice
lands. Beyond these mountains, in the wedge shaped plateau,
are great old cities supported by rich farm lands and a
culture that has its roots in the almost historical Kumari
Continent from where, they claim, civilization spread across
the world. The south is gracious, graceful, Old India.
South India is made up of the 4 states of Andhra Pradesh,
Karnataka, Kerala and Tamil Nadu. They all lie in the
southern part of the Indian Peninsula and famous for its
natural beauty and a rich cultural heritage thus providing
visitors a stimulating experience.
