Culture and Technology

Culture and technology are the topic Tempel in Thanhavurof our trips from Varkala to Chennai, across Southern India. In Tamil Nadu, there are many well-preserved temple monuments from all historic periods of the country which still today serve as locations for religious ceremonies. In no other state of the subcontinent, Hindu culture has been maintained so purely.

But also recent history has left its traces. Rock Relief in MamallapuramIn Chennai, capital of the Tamils, the formerly British classic bike Royal Enfield is built according to the original plans. Thousands of these single cylinder bikes leave the factory halls every month. The guided visit of the Enfield plant is the highlight of the trip for the techie.

The sceneries include nearly everything that India has to offer: white farmer with bull ploughsandy beaches at the Eastern and Western coasts, twisty mountain roads in the Western and Eastern Ghatts, endless plains of the Deccan plateau. Only desert sand is not available.
