Location:Chennai, southern India

Reason for travelling:Visitors can watch dancers animate the stories of the Indian epics in the Kalakshetra dance academy, which was founded by Rukmini Devi, the woman who brought Bharatanatyam dance out of the temples and into its full recognition as a classical art form in the 1930s.

The charming traditional Indian dance just serves as a connection joining the past with the present.
