After my recent US Road Trip (I am yet to write about it, should write about it soon) I decided to spend the year end time off on a road trip covering historical and religious places around Tamil Nadu and Pondicherry instead of going to typical tourist places like Ooty, Kodaikanal etc.
I planned the trip such that I will be driving mostly along the coast, since I have a huge affinity to the ocean 🙂 Some of these historical places have confirmed recorded history dating back to more than 1800-1500 years and mentioned in religious texts from millennias ago.
In this trip I also wanted to visit some of the places mentioned in the famous Tamil historical fiction book Ponniyin Selvan.
I did the entire trip in my car (Ford Figo) with my wife and 3 year old son.
Here is my travel log in case you are planning to visit some of these places.
