One of the most remarkable examples of Tamil house architecture you won't find in your travel-guide.
Reading the newspapers daily there I stumbled on an article in 'The Hindu' about this palace never mentioning in wich place it could be found ...
I found it in Kanadikathan a small place near to Karaikudi and I didn't regret to have taken the bus up there.(about 100km from Madurai)
Here you see the private entrance of the house where still the authentic family of the Chettiars live.
Only by accident I took this photo as I didn't know I was on private ground.
