 If you stay here, you will stay in style….a luxorious and well restored mansion..


As a visitor, when you ramble through the narrow streets, you will stumble, literally on stones and worn out roads, and figuratively in stupefaction that there is so much untouched by tourism. Today, there is a curious mix of old stately mansions, English-styled bungalows, partially ruined homes, wedding halls, shops and schools. Somewhere in between will be the temple, with its gopurams in colours varying from washed-out to recently painted tomato red, cobalt blue, parrot green and sunflower yellow.
