South Indian Architecture
The south Indian style of temple architecture can be easily disintegrated into four periods corresponding to the principal kingdoms which ruled in southern India down the centuries. The greatest accomplishments of Pallava architecture are the rock- cut of temples at Mahabalipuram. Chola architecture achieved its peak at Thanjavur, the capital established by the Chola ruler Rajaraja I. Temples erected during the Hoysala kings have complicated plans with numerous angled projections. Temples from the Hoysala period can still be seen at Belur, Halebid and Sringeri. By the 16th century almost all of southern India was part of the Vijayanagara empire. The characteristic feature of this period is the development of the temple complex: concentric series of rectangular enclosure walls with the gopuras (towered gateways) in the middle of each side.


 
 
Music & Dance
Carnatic music is the classical music of Southern India. The basic form is a monophonic song with improvised variations. There are 72 basic scales on the octave, and a rich variety of melodic motion. Both melodic and rhythmic structures are varied and compelling. This is one of the world's oldest & richest musical traditions.

Bharatnatyam South India has a very rich tradition of classical dance. For many centuries the dancers were attached to the temples and has maintained a strong religious flavour to dance. The various classical styles are of South India are Bharatnatyam of Tamil Nadu, Kathakali of Kerala, Kuchipudi of Andhra Pradesh. Bharatnatyam is an Indian classical dance form from the state of Tamil Nadu, which depicts the language of rhythm and melody in different patterns of curves, angles and lateral movements.

Bharatnatyam has a devotional basis and owes its origins to Devadasis (temple dancers). Kathakali, a well-developed dance-drama, is a performance where the actors depict characters from the epics Ramayana and Mahabharata and from the Puranas (ancient scriptures). The genesis of Kuchipudi art as of most Indian classical dances is associated with religions. For a long time, the art was presented only at temples and that too only for annual festivals of certain temples in Andhra.

  Ayurveda and Yoga
Cuisine
South Indian dishes have gained in popularity over the last few years. Almost every major city in the world now has atleast one South Indian restaurant. South Indian cuisine is rice based. Rice is combined with lentils to make wonderful dosas, idlis, vadas and uttapams. These items are glorious and delicious besides being nourishing and digestible due to the fermenting process. They are combined with sambhar (dal), rasam (tamarind dal), dry and curried vegetable and yogurt. The South Indian food is a brilliant blend of flavors, colors, seasoning, nutritional balance, fragrance, taste, and visual appeal.

Auyveda & Yoga
Ayurveda's holistic approach, the adequacy of its therapies and the absence of distressing side effects are some of its more salient features. South India has helped in raising the awareness about the benefits of this natural health system throughout the world. Apart from offering a wide range of therapies South India also offers Yoga & Meditation under the guidance of an expert, whom you may consult for a fuller understanding of symptoms and appropriate treatment.
