‘Must see’ Dakshina Chitra

In Travels on May 5, 2010 by Ticket, please?

What happens when the cultural history of four states (Andhra Pradesh, Tamil Nadu, Kerela and Karnataka) get summed up in a 10 acre campus? It gets labelled as a ‘must see’. Here’s a small village in a city that wakes up and shuts down everyday from 9 to5 (well almost).

The architecture of a bygone era, a rustic setting, a crafted world, an art long forgotten, a must see – that is Dakshina Chitra for you. Try a hand at palm leaf painting, pottery making or even glass blowing. Experience the sheer excitement of your own creation that you can carry back home.

Cut a ticket to Chennai and get here. This place cannot be experienced in words. So I will let the pictures take you there.
