“An artist's paradise”

Cholamandal Artists' Village
More attraction details

Fee: No
Recommended length of visit: 1-2 hours
Owner description: An unassuming introduction to local art, the Cholamandal Village is a serene set-up, displaying works of upcoming and established artists, painters and sculptors from South India. It was built in 1966 and is nine kilometers from the city. The village houses an art gallery, museum and an amphitheater for theater performances. This is a residential village for the artists, so a polite reserve is appreciated.

If you are an artist or understand art in its many forms this is one place to visit.I visited the place because one of my lecturers lived in the vicinity just to kill a couple of hours. But I ended up spending the entire afternoon and evening there. Its a great place and parking wasn't a problem.

This trip was avoidable.... Not much there to look. Dakshin Chiteq, a bit more commercial was much better.

Its ok ,teaches you all about the culture of south India.But too much money for entry fees.I would better spend it iin golden beach rather than learning and understnding the culture.
