Wind your way inland and discover the gorgeous town of Chidambaram, home to some fantastic architecture and breath-taking nature.
At its heart of Chidambaram is the Nataraja complex, where you’ll find the incredible Nataraja Temple. Dedicated to the God Shiva, the huge colourful towers are visible for miles around.
Not far from Chidambaram, you’ll find Pichavaram, the second largest mangrove forest in the world and home to a variety of birds including pelicans, snipes and spoonbills.
Chidambaram plays host to many festivals. Natyanjali in February is not to be missed - dancers from all over the country come together to present a dance offering. The annual chariot festival is also a sight to behold!
