July/August destinations in India (with less rain/less humidity)

July/August destinations in India (with less rain/less humidity)

I am planning to spend April, and May in the Indian Himalayas (both NE India, and the far NW), but since I have a six month Indian visa, I am allowed to stay until the end of September, my question is where should I spend June, and then July, and August? I know these months are very rainy almost everywhere, and since I am visiting dry places like Ladakh in April/May, the question remains where else in India can I go that's relatively dry (though a nice downpour now and then COULD be nice, just to see it, but not everyday, and not if it's going to affect photography), and where is the heat, and humidity relatively lower (in July, and August)? Please don't say Ladakh because I will have already seen it in April/May. I am looking for other alternatives, with less rain, less humidty, and fewer hazy/overcast days (in July, and August).

You could also go to Coorg,Dubare and Nagarhole -- all in Karnataka and are excellent places for photography.Wonder why you posted this in the chennai forum.this is a nice city to visit too,but always too humid!mahabalipuram(there is also a crocodile bank on the way to mahabalipuram from chennai city),the temple town of kanchipuram,vedanthangal bird sanctuary,chennai city museum,art gallary are all nice to visit.Not likely to rain in chennai,but can never be sure!
Hope this helps,

I posted in the Chennai forum because I wanted the most amount of users from South India to see it, it doesn't meant I want to spend july/august in Chennai.

And since I'm spending April/May in the Himalayas, that leaves few options for July/August, so I've been advised to visit rajastan, but I think it's too hot then, and since it's monsoon everywhere else, I'm stuck about where to go.

Rajasthan will be warm- but so will everywhere else. You will have less rain in Rajasthan,and the desert areas are exquisite for photography.The humidity is also minimal. I strongly recommend you look into Rajasthan as an option.

Street Names

by tayloretc

Street names change. Frequently. Street signs are usually painted onto buildings at just below eye level, and I think are always yellow with black writing. Tamil and English are usually on the same sign; if not, check the other side of the street. Although the names won't match anything on your map, so it doesn't really matter…

The photo is the sign for a major road, whose name actually shows up on several maps. Many signs are located better than this one is, but most are not.

Watch a movie

by PierreZA

To watch a Tamil movie in Chennai could be one of the highlights of a visit to Chennai. Even though I don’t understand the language, there are enough English words every now and then, and the movie is entertaining enough to follow and enjoy!
For a few rupees (Ind Rs 80 – Jan 2008) I got a seat on the balcony, which was great. I went to the Albert cinema in Egmore.
It seems that it very much a family affair. During intermission, you can buy anything from popcorn to warn Indian snacks.
The A/C is ice cold; there are lots of restlessness in the audience and lots of conversation. The sound is so loud, that last mentioned does not bother at all.
An experience you should not miss!

San Thome Cathedral - Tomb of St Thomas

by Willettsworld

In the crypt of San Thome Cathedral is said to be a small bone from Saint Thomas' hand and the weapon that killed him. In the 10th century, a group of Nestorian Christians from Persia (Iran) discovered the saint’s burial site and built a church and tomb. The Portuguese then came along in the 16th century and built another church over the tomb before the present structure was built in 1893.

srhussaini's new Madras Page

by srhussaini

For the visitor wishing to explore southern India extensively, Madras/Chennai (Chennai is the name given to the city 3 years ago,earlier it was called as Madras) the capital of the state of Tamil Nadu, is the most convenient point of entry. Madras has an international airport, a sea port and a rail and road network that links it to all major towns and cities of the region. It also has several deluxe hotels and others to suit modest budgets. Tamil Nadu is a bastion of Hinduism, whose past endures into the present. Temples with towering spires called gopurams are a common feature of this state, seldom seen anywhere else in the country. Temples in Tamil Nadu were the fulcrum of society and even today art forms that have their origin in religious worship continue to colour daily life. Notable among these are splendid bronzes of deities, painting on glass and Bharatnatyam, an evocative dance form. Mahabalipuram, Kanchipuram and Thanjavur are good examples of temple towns where within the temple fortifications grew a multi layered society that preached faith and grew from social harmony. Kanchipuram, also called Kanjeevaram, is famous throughout the country as the center where lustrous silk sarees are woven. Likewise Thanjavur is an important center for bronze figure casting. Mahabalipuram, with its wealth of sculptures, is located by the seaside and has excellent resorts
