Visalam is a typical chettinadu mansion with an eclectic mix of Art Deco, colonial and south Indian architectural styles. Originally built over 75 years ago, Visalam has been carefully restored to its original state with traditional eggshell-plaster walls, ornate woodwork and shimmering chandeliers imported from Europe. The 15 spacious rooms, simply furnished in local style with original 1930s furniture, blend old world grace with some modern amenities. In the restaurant, the region's most famous and distinctive Chettinadu cuisine is served. Other facilities include a swimming pool. This mansion is set in the village of Kannadukathan and is approximately 16 km from the town of Karaikudi.
