South Indian Dances are originated in the temples as a means to praise the Gods and Goddesses which were performed by Devadasis and gradually the concept of dancing girls originated who started nurturing the art of dance in the courts of the kings. South Indian states comprise of Tamil Nadu, Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka, and Kerala which offer varied and interesting culture, cuisine and art form.
