Between the Malabar and Coromandel Coast lie the Southern states of India, once collectively known as Dravida, derived from the Sanskrit word 'drava' (sea). Journey through swaying palm tress and lush waterways, snake shrines and tea plantations shrouded in mist - these visual treats are just a few examples of what South India has to offer. Explore an enchanted mosaic of shore temples, spice markets, painted dancers and Kalari martial artists. South India, A Mosaic, will evoke powerful sensations of a distinctly magical land, steeped in a wealth of traditions and a dynamic history; an inspiration for people across the world.
