The Vaigai River Valley Excavations at Keeladi - Storytrails
Every sight has a story to tell

The Vaigai River Valley Excavations at Keeladi

The Keeladi excavations date South Indian civilization to 580 BCE. And the Porunai, or the Thamirabarani River excavations take it back even further, to 1155 BCE! 

These excavations allow us to take another look at theories of how civilization began in South India. Did it really begin when people from the Indo-Gangetic plains migrated down south, about 3000 years ago? Or were there thriving settlements in these parts much before that time? How were they linked to the Indus Valley Civilisation? 

The story is still unfolding… 

Join Storytrails as we take you through the highlights of one of the most significant archaeological excavations in recent times: The Vaigai River Valley Excavations.

This workshop will bring alive some of the most exciting tales from our book, The Temple of Treasures and Other Incredible Tales of Indian Monuments.

Testimonial

Dancers Trail is fun and informational cultural experience. I would recommend this trail for those looking for a unique experience.

What a way to explore the little French Riviera! I am not new either to walking tours or to Pondicherry and yet I was surprised by both. I had taken the Moscow Free Tour when I was in Russia last year. For a long time, I considered it one of the best tours I’ve done. But French Connections has blown me away with it’s the attention to detail and depth of research. The stories of generals and generals, wine and women came alive and took us back in time.
