Tamil Nadu is a traditional land, where one can still witness ancient culture heritage's relevance in modern times. Temples in Tamil Nadu were the fulcrums of society and even today art forms that have their origin in religious worship continue to colour daily life. Providing a contras to the temple heritage is the city of Pondicherry with its French flavour. Yet, another facet of this surprisingly diverse state of Tamilnadu is two Hill stations - Ooty and Kodaikanal. Both are little patches of England, being much loved by the expatriate population of the Raj.
