TESTIMONIALS

Remote Lands' commitment to superior service ensured our trip to India and Sri Lanka was a great one, even in the face of force majeure...we are already thinking of where to go next in Asia.

Karakkudi

Located in the Chettinad area of the southern state of Tamil Nadu, Karakkudi is famous for the unique limestone houses and structures spread throughout the city. During the late 1800s, Karakkudi rose to prominence as a major financial center, and became the most prosperous city in the region. Today, Karakkudi is a small city of about 110,000, and is famous for its excellent cuisine, which features a wide number of spices, tastes and vegetarian ingredients. Additionally, as many Chettiars (the merchant castes who dominated Chettinad) emigrated overseas, Chettinadi cuisine features a number of outside ingredients, including Burmese sticky rice.
