Around Chettinad

The area around Chettinad is famous for its superb residences, and just walking around the villages allows you to see them up close. The rural way of life is the perfect antidote to all the Chola temples you will see on a tour of Tamil Nadu. Another superb experience is to head to the local market, buy your supplies and learn to cook the local cuisine, tasting your efforts for lunch.
