Wow What a nice place

Inhabited by Tamilians, music and dance conserve the rich cultural heritage of Muttukadu. Carnatic music and Bharatanatyam are performed during festivities and is in fact considered one of the best ways to pay respect to the gods. Pongal, celebrated in the month of January, is one of the important festivals of Muttukadu, while Diwali, Eid and Christmas are the other important festivals celebrated by the community. Activities & things to do: since it was off season there was not much activity.
Travel tips, How to reach, travel warnings etc: Very easy by the side of old NH 17
