    Chettinad is an entire homogenous region developed by a Tamil trading community with vaulting ambition—a region that displays a unique architectural pastiche, surprising ecological sensibilities and sophisticated urban planning
    The region has superb architectural innovations, such as the famous egg-white and lime mixture for the walls that leaves them like silk or the equally famous Athangudi floor tiles, beautiful sarees, mouth watering cuisine and antique goods markets.
