Chetti Nadu


Karaikudi is famous for its ornate buildings and I’ve always wanted to go and check out the chettiar houses with teak work doors and pillars.

I think when we were there and with all the nonsense we were going through, we didn’t spend enough time exploring the place. But I liked the people there and I realised there’s no beggars there.


Interestingly you’ll find a lot of businesses with Malaysia in their name. we didn’t get to go into any of the houses coz everytime we tried, the owners were usually not in, anyway enjoy the photos.
