Chettinadu or Chettinad is home to the extremely wealthy and prosperous mercantile community of the Nattukottai Chettiars. The region is as renowned for its well spiced, aromatic and non-vegetarian cuisine (excepting for beef and pork) as for its architecture and temples. Traditional 18th century mansions reflect both bygone and current prosperity, with wide, tiled courtyards and spacious, teak and rooms embellished with marble. The prosperous community of Chettiars with connections in different parts of the world had the wherewithal to import construction material and furnishings from East Asia, marble from Italy, chandeliers and teakwood from Burma, tableware from Indonesia, crystal chandeliers from Europe and immense mirrors from Belgium. Their homes were inspired by the great mansions of Europe, particularly those of France and are an unusual fusion of South Indian and Western architectural styles.
