Discover Chettinad


Chettinad is a region almost centrally located in the southern Indian state of Tamil Nadu. It is a culturally and historically important region famous for its unique cuisine, agriculture and architecture.The origin of Chettinad begins in the 13th century when the Nattukottai Chettiars migrated to Karaikudi. They left their previous area, the Cauvery Poompattinam, following a massive flood. The new settlement eventually became the Chettinad region of 96 villages in 1947 and over a 600-1500 square mile area, out of which around 76 villages still exist today.
