4.5/5 based on 200+ reviews on the web
Wander around DakshinaChitra Museum, a campus-like museum where the history of south India comes to life. You can enter the buildings, all of which are original and were removed from their previous locations to be re-erected at the open-air museum, whose name translates as “Picture of the South.” Watch demonstrations of the craftsmen’s work and art; you can even buy some of the works as souvenirs afterwards. Put DakshinaChitra Museum on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Muttukadu trip itinerary maker.
