    A village style resort in Kanadukathan, a heritage village. There are 8 air conditioned rooms with double or twin beds. The rooms are designed like the homes in Chettinad villages. Hand made Attangudi tiles have been used for flooring and the furniture in the room resembles those used in homes in the region. The rooms have an air conditioner and fan. The bathrooms are modern with shower with running hot and cold water. Hair dyers and tea/coffee makers are available on request.
    The resort is located equidistantly about 1 ½ hours drive from Tanjore, Madurai and Trichy. And about 3 kms from the Tanjore – Madurai highway as also the Trichy – Rameswaram highway. The resort is surrounded by huge mansions. Guests have access to most of the facilities of the famed sprawling Chettinad Mansion, just 5 minutes walk. Guests can visit the Pillayarpatti Temple, Kundrakudi Temple (both about 10 mins. Drive) and do a day trip to Rameshwaram (which is about 3 hours drive).
    Chettinad is the home of the Nattukottai Chettiars, a prosperous banking and business community and also for Nattar Vallambars - a feudal community. It is also known for its local cuisine, architecture, and religious temples. The Chettinad region is well known for its 19th-century mansions, whose wide courtyards and spacious rooms are embellished with marble and teak. Construction materials, decorative items and furnishings were mostly imported from East Asian countries and Europe. The marble was brought from Italy, chandeliers and teak from Burma, crockery from Indonesia, crystals from Europe and wall-to-wall mirrors from Belgium. Many of these mansions were built using a type of limestone known as karai. Local legend has it that the mansion walls were polished with a paste made out of egg whites to give them a smooth texture. Kanadukathan is most famous for its Chettinad cuisine and for the architecture of its houses, whose main entrances are shaped to resemble those of temples.

    It is a quiet neighbourhood that is central to Devakottai Town and is in close proximity to most important locations of the town including the highway and the main market. The property is a cozy and quiet guesthouse that is in the midst of old chettiar mansions (famous home architecture in the region) in the locality. I speak English, Tamil and Hindi and only a call away. We have a caretaker who lives very close by and a guard posted for the night & most parts of the day. Both speak tamil.
    The property has power back up and there is an electric tea kettle with instant tea and coffee to make yourself your morning cuppa. We do not have a kitchen or food facilities on the property but there are shops close-by where you can feed yourself. Just keep our staff informed if you need something. They can help you get it. We can organize short day trips for you to visit famous temples, tourist-y places and explore the region with 1-2 day's notice. We can also arrange for guided shopping tours, cooking classes to learn famous dishes of the delicious local cuisine or taste a home-cooked meal if we are informed well in advance. The rooms are cleaned everyday by our housekeeping staff. If you need clothes to be washed, our dhobi will do it for you. Just let us know before 8 am so that we can ask her to schedule it. If you need travel arrangements to be made, pickups, drops,etc. again, just let us know in advance, we will make the necessary arrangements. My most important piece of advice... Keep all medicines you may need with you. You may not be able to get all the medicines in this town.
    Our property is in the midst of the palatial Chettiar Mansions. It is 2-3 minutes away from Vairam Kalyana Mandapam, Theena Pillaiyar Temple, Kottai Amman Temple and Nagara Pallikoodam. It is central to most of the important locations in the town including the main shopping bazar, famous temples, highways, etc. There is a little, street-corner, vegetarian parotta shop, Jinnah Parotta, where you must try the scrumptious Vechu Parottas. If you want to experience the local culture, you should visit during the Kottai Amman Temple Festival that happens in the end of July and 1st week of August. The Kottai Amman temple gets a different kind of buzz and vibrancy at the time.

    The rooms in the Mansion are maintained in the same style as in the 1900s. The wash rooms are clean and dry and stocked with the required toiletries. Every room in the main block has a balcony, which opens out into life around the Mansion. Room service is not entertained in abundant caution to prevent insects. The rooms in the ambience of the village are quiet and are ideal for good nights sleep. All efforts are made to give you a truly Heritage Stay without compromising on modern day comforts.
    This Mansion is the among the largest of the ageing 3000 plus Mansions spread across 72 villages and 2 towns where the Chettiars live, in the area commonly known as Chettinad. The blue prints of the Mansion were preserved and a sixth generation granddaughter has taken pains to put into shape that which is presented here. Built during 1902, the Mansion is spread over a sprawling 80,000 square feet in area. The Heritage of the Mansion has been carefully protected and just 8 rooms are open to guests who get the privilege of privacy. The construction began in 1902 and it took ten years for completion. The mansion is huge and the rooms are embellished with the lavish use of Burmese Teak Wood, Italian Marble and English Steel. It contains several courts, halls and corridors with carved pillars. The proportions of the courts and corridors are quite sizeable, measuring up to your wildest expectations. As one enters the mansion one passes through the front yard comprising of the traditional Tulsi plant and a portico. Beyond the portico there is a beautiful veranda-crossing which leads to a marble hall. Flooring is made of white and black Italian marble and the pillars are of shining black marble. This is the marriage hall. Next comes the huge main courtyard which has two floors supported by Iron pillars. The second floor houses bedrooms with picturesque walls and attached bathrooms. Each bedroom has an entry into a common long balcony overlooking the street. It’s from here that you get to watch day-to-day life bloom and the other roofs of the village that paint the clear blue sky. An open shower has also been provided in the balcony. After the main Court there is another hall, following which one enters into another courtyard called the second courtyard. And right through the middle of this courtyard runs a pathway. On either side of the central courtyard there are two huge dining halls called the Bojana (Food) Hall. There is also a third courtyard and a big back yard. The pillars in the various courts have been made of different materials. The pillars in the front varandha are made of lime mortar and those in the marriage hall are of black marble. The pillars in the pattalai before the central court are fortified with porisu wood, which takes compressible load more than other woods. It also takes polish well. While the pillars in the second court yard are made of steel, the ones in the third are made of stone. Similarly, the flooring too varies from court to court. The various kinds of flooring include lime mortar, marble, Athangudi tiles, Anai adi Kallu, etc. Pressed metal plates have been fixed in many places as false lining for the top ceiling.

    A celebrated residence though it once was, today a veritable museum, having preserved almost everything of its original character and interiors from the time it was built almost a century ago. The rooms are large with high ceilings, gleaming floors and polished windows and doors. The furniture is period in style, flawlessly crafted and made from the finest Burma teak. The floors and walls are inlaid with the famous Aathangudy tiles that are handmade to this very day.
    This Mansion was the splendid house that KVAL Ramanathan Chettiar built for his eldest daughter, Visalakshi, in Chettinad more than a century ago. However, it never became the lively family home it was intended to be and was used only for occasional family gatherings during the period following its construction. A half-century later it passed onto us bringing with it an unparalleled legacy and a technical challenge of the highest order. How were we to restore this masterpiece while remaining faithful to its original conception? It was a task that we met with diligence and pride, selecting both materials and people who approached the restoration with great care and skill as you would a work of art. No sweeping changes were made to the building’s interiors except to partition its vast halls into comfortable guest rooms from which to experience a palpable presence of the past. Today at this Mansion, one of our landmark heritage properties, you can bear witness to an ambiance that still exudes the spirit of the times it was built in. Its character remains unchanged over the decades and faithfully recalls its original inspiration - the touching saga of a father’s gift to his first daughter! This Chettiar Mansion recalls a way of life that was truly extraordinary. The Chettiar community of this region were prosperous traders who loved the good life. Their palatial houses were standing testaments to an aesthetic sense that was lofty in its conception and painstaking in its details. The furniture is period in style, flawlessly crafted and made from the finest Burma teak. The floors and walls are inlaid with the famous Aathangudy tiles that are handmade to this very day. To complement this antique spirit of the house, we have added a service style that is rooted in the tradition and culture of this region, making for a holiday experience that is as magnificent as it is local in nature. Think Chettinad cuisine and you are likely to think of a playground for spices. It is all this and more. While it is relished around India, it is relatively new to foreign palates. Its unique character is the result of ingenious blends that delicately combine south-east Asian spices, like star anise, with other Indian ingredients that pull you into a sensory domain all its own. If you are a food lover in search of new gastronomic adventures then we will have plenty for you to savor and recall for a long time to come. And If you are given to the exacting but enjoyable art of cooking, take part in our interactive kitchen sessions during your stay with us and learn the fine secrets that lie behind this singular cuisine of southern India.
    Walking about the narrow streets of Kanadukathan - one of 9 villages of the prominent Chettiar community of these parts - you could be forgiven for having fallen back in time to a past that still looms large and casts its shadow upon the daily lives of people here ; where majestic villas, imposing colonial-style bungalows and other stately ruins of a bygone era trying to impress onlookers with their stature and grandeur. The marketplace is abuzz with activities that have not changed in a long time - crafts, jewelry, sculpture and woodwork - all of which form the economic, social and cultural leitmotif of this dynamic and ingenious merchant community. Shoppers can make some great buys and bargains here! And for those of you drawn to religion and want to explore the sacred in the lives of these people, Kanadukathan abounds in many temples known for their unique history, most notably the ancient 1800 years old Pallayiar Patti temple a short ride away. The Chettinad region’s simplicity is what you’ll be charmed by, instantly. You’ll see the same reflect in the ancient mansions of Chettinad, which have simplistic grandeur as their hallmark. There are many facets to the Chettinad region. Like, the astute business community of Chettiars, distinct spicy cuisine, stunning ancient mansions and the artistic Athangudi floor tiles. Known for their architectural splendor, around 11,000 of Chettinad’s mansions still remain – it’s about half the number that existed 100 years ago. Each mansion in Chettinad is soaked in timelessness. But while some of them are aging with neglect, others find themselves restored as heritage hotels welcoming the world. The famed mansions were built over 200 years ago by the Chettiars. The feature Italian marble, Burmese teak, chandeliers, ornate woodwork ceilings, stone pillars, all integrated to perfection. The timeless temples built centuries ago with intricate stone carvings and towering gopurams are still around. Even today, they adhere to the age-old religious customs and traditions. The art and craft of handloom weaving is kept alive in the villages of Kanadukathan as the artistic weavers spin the chakra the real way. The art of handloom weaving is practiced in the villages of Karaidkudi, having beem passed down from one generation to the next. Also, the beautifully woven bed runners at our property, are from here. If you’ve ever tasted Chettinad cuisine, you’re sure to fall in love with it. Enquire about the secret of its taste, and you’ll hear, “its freshly ground masalas with aromatic spices!”

    Kanadukathan, Tamil Nadu, Indien

    A celebrated residence though it once was, today a veritable museum, having preserved almost everything of its original character and interiors from the time it was built almost a century ago. The rooms are large with high ceilings, gleaming floors and polished windows and doors. The furniture is period in style, flawlessly crafted and made from the finest Burma teak. The floors and walls are inlaid with the famous Aathangudy tiles that are handmade to this very day.
    This Mansion was the splendid house that KVAL Ramanathan Chettiar built for his eldest daughter, Visalakshi, in Chettinad more than a century ago. However, it never became the lively family home it was intended to be and was used only for occasional family gatherings during the period following its construction. A half-century later it passed onto us bringing with it an unparalleled legacy and a technical challenge of the highest order. How were we to restore this masterpiece while remaining faithful to its original conception? It was a task that we met with diligence and pride, selecting both materials and people who approached the restoration with great care and skill as you would a work of art. No sweeping changes were made to the building’s interiors except to partition its vast halls into comfortable guest rooms from which to experience a palpable presence of the past. Today at this Mansion, one of our landmark heritage properties, you can bear witness to an ambiance that still exudes the spirit of the times it was built in. Its character remains unchanged over the decades and faithfully recalls its original inspiration - the touching saga of a father’s gift to his first daughter! This Chettiar Mansion recalls a way of life that was truly extraordinary. The Chettiar community of this region were prosperous traders who loved the good life. Their palatial houses were standing testaments to an aesthetic sense that was lofty in its conception and painstaking in its details. The furniture is period in style, flawlessly crafted and made from the finest Burma teak. The floors and walls are inlaid with the famous Aathangudy tiles that are handmade to this very day. To complement this antique spirit of the house, we have added a service style that is rooted in the tradition and culture of this region, making for a holiday experience that is as magnificent as it is local in nature. Think Chettinad cuisine and you are likely to think of a playground for spices. It is all this and more. While it is relished around India, it is relatively new to foreign palates. Its unique character is the result of ingenious blends that delicately combine south-east Asian spices, like star anise, with other Indian ingredients that pull you into a sensory domain all its own. If you are a food lover in search of new gastronomic adventures then we will have plenty for you to savor and recall for a long time to come. And If you are given to the exacting but enjoyable art of cooking, take part in our interactive kitchen sessions during your stay with us and learn the fine secrets that lie behind this singular cuisine of southern India.
    Walking about the narrow streets of Kanadukathan - one of 9 villages of the prominent Chettiar community of these parts - you could be forgiven for having fallen back in time to a past that still looms large and casts its shadow upon the daily lives of people here ; where majestic villas, imposing colonial-style bungalows and other stately ruins of a bygone era trying to impress onlookers with their stature and grandeur. The marketplace is abuzz with activities that have not changed in a long time - crafts, jewelry, sculpture and woodwork - all of which form the economic, social and cultural leitmotif of this dynamic and ingenious merchant community. Shoppers can make some great buys and bargains here! And for those of you drawn to religion and want to explore the sacred in the lives of these people, Kanadukathan abounds in many temples known for their unique history, most notably the ancient 1800 years old Pallayiar Patti temple a short ride away. The Chettinad region’s simplicity is what you’ll be charmed by, instantly. You’ll see the same reflect in the ancient mansions of Chettinad, which have simplistic grandeur as their hallmark. There are many facets to the Chettinad region. Like, the astute business community of Chettiars, distinct spicy cuisine, stunning ancient mansions and the artistic Athangudi floor tiles. Known for their architectural splendor, around 11,000 of Chettinad’s mansions still remain – it’s about half the number that existed 100 years ago. Each mansion in Chettinad is soaked in timelessness. But while some of them are aging with neglect, others find themselves restored as heritage hotels welcoming the world. The famed mansions were built over 200 years ago by the Chettiars. The feature Italian marble, Burmese teak, chandeliers, ornate woodwork ceilings, stone pillars, all integrated to perfection. The timeless temples built centuries ago with intricate stone carvings and towering gopurams are still around. Even today, they adhere to the age-old religious customs and traditions. The art and craft of handloom weaving is kept alive in the villages of Kanadukathan as the artistic weavers spin the chakra the real way. The art of handloom weaving is practiced in the villages of Karaidkudi, having beem passed down from one generation to the next. Also, the beautifully woven bed runners at our property, are from here. If you’ve ever tasted Chettinad cuisine, you’re sure to fall in love with it. Enquire about the secret of its taste, and you’ll hear, “its freshly ground masalas with aromatic spices!”

    It is a quiet neighbourhood that is central to Devakottai Town and is in close proximity to most important locations of the town including the highway and the main market. The property is a cozy and quiet guesthouse that is in the midst of old chettiar mansions (famous home architecture in the region) in the locality. I speak English, Tamil and Hindi and only a call away. We have a caretaker who lives very close by and a guard posted for the night & most parts of the day. Both speak tamil.
    There is an electric tea kettle with instant tea and coffee to make yourself your morning cuppa. We do not have a kitchen or food facilities on the property but there are shops close-by where you can feed yourself. Just keep our staff informed if you need something. They can help you get it. We can organize short day trips for you to visit famous temples, tourist-y places and explore the region with 1-2 day's notice. We can also arrange for guided shopping tours, cooking classes to learn famous dishes of the delicious local cuisine or taste a home-cooked meal if we are informed well in advance. The rooms are cleaned everyday by our housekeeping staff. If you need clothes to be washed, our dhobi will do it for you. Just let us know before 8 am so that we can ask her to schedule it. If you need travel arrangements to be made, pickups, drops,etc. again, just let us know in advance, we will make the necessary arrangements. My most important piece of advice... Keep all medicines you may need with you. You may not be able to get all the medicines in this town.
    Vairam’s is located in Devakottai, Tamil Nadu, India. Our property is in the midst of the palatial Chettiar Mansions. It is 2-3 minutes away from Vairam Kalyana Mandapam, Theena Pillaiyar Temple, Kottai Amman Temple and Nagara Pallikoodam.
