Dakshinachitra - a heritage & cultural centre few kms from Chennai is a must-see place for those who love ancient architecture of South India. Here you can see traditional homes from Kerala, Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh & Tamil Nadu.
Crafts Fairs, Festivals of Folk Performing Arts & Activities are organised by Dakshinachitra. You can buy handmade crafts directly from the artisans. Learn traditional games & crafts like basket weaving, pottery etc.
This time around they had 'Golu' - A tradition where colourful idols of Hindu Gods & Goddesses are displayed on shelves at different levels during Dusshera.
Love the whole village ambience.
