Kochi, which is surrounded by an Arabian Sea saltwater lagoon, is actually made up of a number of tiny islands and peninsulas. With their mixture of Dutch, Portuguese, and English bungalows and their charming tiny alleyways, Mattancherry and Fort Kochi offer an old-world appeal, in contrast to mainland Eranakulam’s concrete commercial malls and opulent apartment towers. For generations, tourists from all over the world have been charmed by Kochi’s picturesque position, which is flanked by palm trees, verdant meadows, inland lakes, and backwaters.

Mysore is a captivating city that is renowned for its ostentatious festival celebrations. Since 400 years ago, Dusshera has been a highly anticipated holiday that draws large crowds to see the spectacular celebrations. Mysore was the capital of the Wadiyar Hindu dynasty skirted by wooded hills and situated among fertile fields. It ruled southern Karnataka from 1399 to 1947, except for the 38-year rule of the Muslim warlord Haider Ali and his son, Tipu Sultan, in the 18th century. 

 

Ashtanga Yoga is a style of yoga that synchronizes the breath with a variety of postures, and it is very popular in the city. Additionally, it is renowned for its fine sandalwood and silk products. The city has a lot of things to offer for all tourists with a wide variety of sightseeing locations, including exotic palaces and beautiful gardens. With our expertly designed same-day Mysore tour, you can discover the allure of the city.

Day 7: Travel to Shravanbelagola as well as Hassan
KERALA, TAMIL NADU, KARNATAKA, GOA

Shravanabelagola is a small city located between two granite hills, Indragiri and Chandragiri, on its famous White Pond. It is South India’s most important Jain site. It is dominated by a massive monolithic statue of Gommateshvara, also known as Bahubali, the son of the first Jain Tirthankara, standing 17.7m tall. The statue of the naked savior stands on an anthill on the summit of the very tall Indragiri Hill, staring impassively ahead. Creepers are entwined around his legs and arms, indicating how long he stood immobile in meditation. An inscription at the base records Chamundaraya, the powerful minister of Rajamalla IV, one of the Ganga kings, and the consecration of the temple in AD981.

 

Following the visit, you will drive to Hassan.

 

Spend the night in Hassan.

 

Day 8: Full day in Belur and Halebidu (from Hassan)

Among the wonders of South Indian art and architecture are the temples built by the Hoysala kings (12th–13th centuries) and their skillful ministers. They represent the union of the columned mandapas of the South with the curved towers (shikhara) of North India. They stand out for their distinctive star-shaped plan and their lavish surface ornamentation. The Chennakeshva Temple in Belur is renowned for its shrine, pillars, and sculptures. King Vishnuvardhan erected it in 1117 to honor the Hoysalas’ victory over the Cholas.

 

The Vijayanagar king built a towered gopura in the 16th century that serves as the temple’s entrance. Some of the finest and most impressive examples of Hoysala architecture can be found in Halebidu. A tourist’s paradise, Hoysaleshvara Temple boasts exquisite pillars and sculptures. King Vishnuvardhana began construction on the structure in 1121, and it took ten years to complete. Its structure consists of a pair of identical Shiva temples. Depending on the amount of time available, the Kedareshwara Temple in Halebidu is a lesser-known tourist destination but is still worthwhile a quick visit.

 

Spend the night in Hassan

Day 9: Travel to Chitradurga, then continue to Hampi

Spend the night in Hampi

Day 10: The first full day of the Hampi visit
KERALA, TAMIL NADU, KARNATAKA, GOA

On the southern bank of the Tungabhadra River, Hampi, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is home to the spectacular ruins of Vijayanagar, the “City of Victory.” For more than 200 years, Hampi served as the capital of three generations of Hindu emperors. Under Krishnadeva Raya and Achyuta Raya, Hampi was at its height. It still serves as a significant religious hub. The site includes the royal and holy centers. It is on a great site, with granite boulders and rugged ridges serving as natural defenses. The view is magnificent. The sacred center of the city was guarded by a fortified urban core that was divided from it by an irrigated valley through which still-existing canals and rivers once ran.

 

The Krishna Temple, Virupaksha Temple, King’s Balance, Elephant Stables, Lotus Mahal, Queen’s Bath, Mahanavami Platform, Stepped Tank, and Narasimha Monolith are among the places that will be visited.

 

Spend the night in Hampi.

Day 11: Second Full day visit to Hampi
KERALA, TAMIL NADU, KARNATAKA, GOA

The Vitthala Temple, the largest of all the religious structures in the sacred center, stands as the pinnacle of Vijayanagar art and construction. Although its creator is still unknown, two of Vijayanagar’s finest emperors, Krishnadeva Raya and Achyuta Raya, expanded it in the 16th century. The large open hall, or mahamandapa, which is erected on a low platform and supported by elaborately carved pillars, is located before the main shrine. 11 years before the city was captured and abandoned, in 1554, a military commander gave this as a gift.

 

Spend the night in Hampi.

Day 12: Hampi to Badami and enroute visit Aihole and Pattadakal
KERALA, TAMIL NADU, KARNATAKA, GOA

With roughly 125 stone temples that date back to the fifth century, Aihole is renowned for its Chalukyan architecture. The Durga temple is the biggest and best, and it’s also the most peculiar because of its apsidal sanctuary and open colonnade. The temple is perched atop a high plinth, and steps at one end lead to a portico that is adorned with intricate carvings of seductive guardians and couples on its columns. The niches lining the colonnade contain further works of sculpture, including those of Durga, Harihara, Narasimha, Vishnu with Garuda, and Shiva with Nandi. In contrast, the sanctuary’s circular plinth and the inside of the hall are both unadorned. The name of the temple is misleading because it no longer contains the image that was formerly worshipped there.

 

A UNESCO World Heritage site is Pattadakal. The Malprabha riverbanks are a lovely location for its holy complex. The magnificent structures from the eighth century serve as a suitable capstone to the Chalukya Kings’ artistic accomplishments. Both Nagara and Dravidian temple architecture may be seen in the town.

 

After your visit, you’ll go on to Badami.

 

Spend the night in Badami.

Day 13: Travel to Badami before heading to Goa
KERALA, TAMIL NADU, KARNATAKA, GOA

You will visit Badami, which has magnificent Cave Temples. The mighty Chalukya rulers who controlled the Deccan throughout the sixth and seventh centuries had Badami as their royal city. This old town is renowned for its rock-cut and structural relics. It is dramatically set within a horseshoe of red sandstone cliffs, overlooking the serene green waters of the sizable Agastya lake. The intricately adorned Cave Temples, which are carved into the cliff and each have a different deity as a patron—Shiva, Vishnu, or Jain Saints—are there.

 

You will travel to Goa following the visit.

 

Spend the night in Goa.

Day 14: Full day visit in Goa

Goa is a little state on the Konkan Coast that is less than 4 square kilometers. Goa’s unique culture is a result of colonial rule in the region. Alfonso de Albuquerque founded a little but potent Portuguese colony here in 1510. Goa joined the Indian Union in 1961, but the people’s attire, language, religion, and food nevertheless reflect centuries of Portuguese control. They also incorporate a blend of the wistful fado and the melodic rhythms of regional Konkani folk melodies in their music. The picturesque beaches, luxuriant paddy fields, coconut plantations, and opulent homes of Goa are well-known. The beautiful churches and Hindu temples are further attractions. The welcoming, laid-back people of Goa go above and beyond to make guests feel good.

 

The beach, a river tour, Reis Magos with its fort and church, the Anjuna Beach flea market (only on Wednesdays), the Bom Jesus Basilica, and some of the other outstanding religious structures can all be included in your itinerary.

 

We advise you to see the Bom Jesus Basilica, which is regarded as one of India’s finest specimens of baroque architecture and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Because it contains Francis Xavier, the patron saint of Goa, in his earthly form, it is highly regarded by Roman Catholics everywhere.

 

Spend the night in Goa.

Day 15: Travel to the airport and drop off

The things you do today will depend on how much time you have before your trip. The majority of our visitors decide to relax at the hotel.

 

Before your return flight, you will be transported to Goa International Airport.
