Road Trips from your City
Bangalore to Kanyakumari (650 km): A visit to Kanyakumari, the southern-most point of India, where the Bay of Bengal, Arabian Sea and Indian Ocean meet, is well worth the drive from Bangalore to get here. A drive on NH7 can make for an interesting history lesson as well. En route, make a quick stop in the temple city of Madurai, and stretch your legs in the vast Meenakshi temple complex there. Rameshwaram, an important Hindu pilgrimage centre, is another small islandtown that merits a visit. The town boasts of a famous Jyotirlinga Shiva temple and is also the scene of an important passage from the Ramayana. While the beach in Kanyakumari may be nothing to write home about, be sure to visit the Vivekananda Rock and check out the Kanyakumari temple with its glittering goddess. A must-visit gem is the famous Suchindram temple about 11kms away, dedicated to the Hindu Triumvirate.
