About the property:

Not many tourists would think of the deep interior of Tamil Nadu as a perfect vacation spot – A blessing, of course, for the rest of us. Chettinad is a place for those who value lost grandeur over glitter, who choose elegance over excitement and who would much prefer an evening walk through history’s shadows to a night at the nearest club.In Visalam, it’s as if we found an old lamp, waiting to be burnished and relit. And it illuminates a cultural treasure trove of rare beauty. Mornings are the time for ‘kolam’ or ‘rangoli’, a traditional art form. Feel free to join in as the smiling staff girls deftly sprinkle rice powder and colour onto the floor, creating a kaleidoscope of geometric patterns. Or try making ‘Poomalai’ or flower garlands, or ask the staff to show you the delicate art of saree wearing. You could even try a traditional Tamil board game, "Pallanguli". Evenings are for the stick dance, 'Kolattam’. Just grab a pair of sticks and join in, whether you are rhythmically inclined or not!Visalam’s trusty bullock cart takes you on a fascinating ride, through a world of forgotten grace and a unique architectural legacy. Wander the quaint markets and watch the silversmiths, stone carvers and wood carvers all work their skills in the old workshops. Visit the local diamond merchant for some traditional jewellery that will melt your lady’s heart. For collectors with a keen eye, the antique shops can throw up some delightful bargains. History buffs will enjoy visiting the numerous temples in the area with their colourful ‘gopurams’, including the famous 1800 year old Pallayiar Patti temple, at a distance of 12km.
