Chettinad Mansion

This mansion was once home to a Chettiar family that made its home in the Sivaganga district of Tamil Nadu. The Nattukottai Chettiars were prosperous merchant traders who followed the British Empire into Southern Asia. Their homes combine European and Asian elements. This 19th century structure is now located in the ethno village of Dakshina Chitra, located south of Chennai.
