Mahabalipuram, Kanchipuram and Pondicherry Tour from Bangalore Overview

  • Kanchipuram, also called Kanchi or Kanjeevaram, is one of the most ancient cities in southern India and traces its history to the 2nd century BCE as an early Chola capital. Temples are found everywhere, and Kanchipuram has a rich cultural history and is one of the oldest cities in India. Apart from Temple City, Kanchipuram is also known as "Silk City" for its unique hand-woven sarees, which are famous all over the country.


  • Mahabalipuram, the combination of a lovely beach and single rock-cut carvings, is known more for its architecture; the monuments were carved by the Pallava Dynasty in the 7th century, nearly 1400 years ago. The rock-cut monuments are well preserved for tourists to study the cultural heritage of India. History lovers will enjoy every inch of each stone at Mahabalipuram.


  • Pondicherry, also known as Puducherry, is a charming coastal town on the southeastern coast of India. With a unique blend of French colonial heritage and Tamil culture, Pondicherry offers tranquil beaches, colonial-era architecture, spiritual retreats like Auroville and Aurobindo Ashram, and a vibrant culinary scene showcasing French and South Indian flavors. Its serene ambiance and picturesque streets make it a popular destination for relaxation and cultural exploration.
