Things to do

Kanadukathan is a laid back village with a rich past of history and culture. Taking a bicycle ride or a bullock cart ride through this village will leave you mesmerized. These can be arranged as and when you want them.

Pillayarpatti Temple, a rock cut shrine with Lord Ganesha and Lord Shiva, is a popular attraction as is the majestic Thirumayam fort that is maintained and administered by the Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) because of its historic link with the Polygar War. Set out on a visit to Athangudi tile factory, where eco-friendly tiles are handmade on glass using natural colors and soil. This technique dates back to 200 years and these tiles were an important element of the Chettinad mansion floors.

A visit to weaving centers where Chettinad cotton sarees, popular for their color splash and the quality of cotton, will reward you with an enlightening experience. The diamond traders of Karaikudi and Kanadukathan have been trusted and favored by the Chettiars over centuries and you can shop for jewelry if you’d like. Antiques and handicrafts found in the local markets make for great souvenirs too.
