Chettinad, a district of Sivaganga in the state of Tamil Nadu and home to the famous community of Nattukottai Chettiars, consists of a cluster of small villages that are known for their antiquity. The multitude of temples, ancient palaces and delicious cuisine make it a thriving tourist destination. 
Famed for its spicy, aromatic cuisine, Chettinad is a region in southern Tamil Nadu, around 109 km from Tiruchirappalli. Home to one of the most prosperous commercial and banking community, Chettinad is widely known for its culinary heritage and lesser known for its equally rich architecture and cultural heritage. 

Scattered all over Chettinad are temples built by Cholas and other Tamil dynasties like  Vairavan Kovil temple, Kundrakudi Murugan temple and others. Grand and majestic, every temple has its own water lily filled water tank, ooranis, that are sites for holy and temple rituals. Equally awe inspiring are the 18th century mansions spread over the city. Palatial, furnished with Burmese teaks with walls that were once polished with egg whites, these mansions are a statement in elegant opulence. Yet another fascinating aspect of Chettinad are the saris produced here. Thick, heavy and slightly shorter in width than usual saris for women to be able to show off their anklets, Chettinad saris simply exude vibrancy and sheer beauty in their deep, earthy colours.
