Travel & holiday; Classic travel writing
Sent on his way by a Chidambaram astrologer, Wood makes a pilgrimage to the temples of southern India. Boarding the 'video bus' crammed with travellers, he explores the remnants of antiquity amidst the present-day Tamil civilisation.

Wood vividly captures ancient cultures and history; the green rice fields and river; and the shrines and temples flocked to by so many for thousands of years.

Here, in all its glory, is India's holy land - the world's only surviving classical civilisation.
