2 day tour of Palatial Mansions of Chettinad from Chennai with Guide

1 review
In this 2 day tour from Chennai we visit the erstwhile Kingdom of Pudukottai and relive a bygone era. We will visit a hidden jewel called Sittanavasal which is a cave with spectacular paintings made 2000 years ago by Jain ascetics.We will climb a steep path to the top of a hillock where we can see seventeen polished bed carved out of the rock. Kudumiyanmalai is an ancient temple where we will see a thousand pillared hall with remarkable sculptures. Thirumayyam Fort with its historical significance in the independence struggle with the British and Palatial Mansions of Chettiyars, the rich traders of 19th century make up rest of the experience.

This museum is located in a very calm place within the Pudukkottai city. Unexpectedly after entering we realised that it has a treasure of information for students. It has a good collections of variety os species, fishes, birds and also articles used by the people who lived in those areas long ago. They have installed a Dinosaur replica which also has a little show during certain timings of the day which makes movement and sound. A treat for the kids to watch. Best part if that its maintained very well.

If you pass on the way to or from Chettinad Puttudokkal it's worth to make a stop at this museum. It's exhibitions covers both natural and human history. It is relatively good maintained. If you are a museum enthusiast and expect detailed descriptions in English you might me disappointed.
