Chettinar Mansions in Tamil Nadu

The Chettinad region in the Indian state of Tamil Nadu is a fascinating area. The Chettinars were wealthy merchants who settled in the area over a century ago and built fanciful mansions with luxurious materials imported from all over the world. Today, you can wander the streets and admire the mansions' mostly deteriorated beauty and stay in a restored property turned hotel hotel. Or make friends with a local Chettinar for an inside look.
