Chettinad is a unique rural region home to beautifully adorned mansions that have changed little over the centuries. The wealth of the area is purely a result of the local Chettiars who have a very unique and rich cultural heritage. They are known throughout India for their success in business and trading as well as their philanthropic nature.  This tour explores the palatial mansions that pepper the area, characterised by their wide courtyards, spacious rooms embellished in marble and teak, and furniture and fixtures sourced from as far as Belgium and Indonesia.
