Tamilnadu Monuments

Tamil Nadu has a great
tradition of history and
culture. In ancient, early
medieval and medieval
period, a number of
dynasties ruled over the
Tamil land. Many of those
rulers were very fond of
art and architecture and
gave generous patronage
to men of letters,
sculptors, architects and
artists. This saw the Tamil
land becoming a hub of
many beautiful and
amazing monuments,
which attract tourists
from all over the world to
this day. These
monuments speak
volumes about the artistic
skills and excellence of the
sculptors and architects of
that period. The temples
with their towering
gopurams and the rock
cut temples leave the
connoisseurs speechless.
As a result of such great
cultural achievements, the
state of Tamil Nadu is
referred to as the cradle of
Dravidian culture, an
ancient culture
distinguished by unique
languages and customs.
