Most of the palatial 18th-century mansions that one will get to see here were built using materials imported from East Asian countries and Europe about 100 years ago.

The celebrated Chettinad cuisine is one of the spiciest and the most aromatic in India. The fresh ground masalas give it the distinctive integrity in taste. The cuisine that is predominantly non-vegetarian stretches out into interesting snacks and delectable vegetarian dishes too.
