About Tamilnadu


The State of Tamil Nadu has a hoary antiquity. Though early sangam classics throw historical references, we pass to recorded history only from the Pallavas.
They were the originators of the famous Dravidian style of temple architecture. The last Pallava ruler was Aparajita, in whose reign the later Cholas under Vijayalaya and Aditya asserted themselves by about the 10th century. At the end of the 11th century, Tamil Nadu was ruled by several dynasties like the Chalukyas, Cholas and Pandyas. In the two centuries that followed, the imperial Cholas gained paramountcy over South India.Even during the period of the tumultuous confusion that followed the battle of Talikota, European commercial interest had appeared as rivals in the area of South India. The Portuguese, the Dutch, the French and the English came in quick succession and established trading centres known as 'Factories'.

Eating Out  

Tamil Nadu, true home of Indian vegetarianism, is the land of the delicious Pongal, Idli, Dosa, Sambar and Rasam. Tamilian's staple diet is steamed rice and most of their food consists of grains, lentils and vegetables. 'Sadhams' (rice dishes) with different flavours are their specialty. Spices are added for most dishes to give a distinctive taste. Coconut, tamarind, asafeotida are a must for most vegetarian dishes.
This type of food has several variations of fish, mutton, and chicken dishes of which the Chettinad Pepper Chicken is a specialty. The Tamil style of Mughali food can be savoured in the biriyanis and paya. Tamil Nadu is also famous for its filter coffee, the making of which is almost a ritual.
