Abstract

Kanadukathan Palace, is one of the chief centres of Nattukottai Chettiyar's cultural heritage.1 It is a most impressive village with massive and lengthy buildings elaborately constructed with well polished walls and stones. These houses are not limited to living alone. The size and nature of the building tells about the prosperity of the owners.2 The buildings are spacious and they provide for ceremonial occasions when hundreds of guests have to be accommodated. The grandly and wonderfully embellished Kanadukathan palace reflects the prosperity of the Nagarathar community. The basic design comprises of a "thennai", enclosed courtyard surrounded by family rooms. The walls are smooth and are made of special plasters. The plasters involve the application of the finely ground mixture of powdered shells, lime, jaggery and spices, including walnut (Fuglans regia) to walls.3 This technique keeps the interior of the house cool in the hot and humid Indian summers and lasts for a lifetime. The architectural structure of the palace is a study about how human dwellings can be in harmony with nature.4 High ceiling and airy, the palace has several courtyards within the one near the entrance leads to the imposing main door, usually made of extraordinarily intricate wood carvings of mythological figures.
