Hats off to the amazing management / Chettinad Trust Committee. They have the monument located here and the entry tickets / permission counters are located 500 kilometres away from this location at Chennai. Since I could not visit this monument I cannot comment anything on this and like me there were other tourists who were nervous on reaching this place.
But no need to get nervous there are other monuments / heritage house in this location, not updated on TripAdvisor but visitors can visit it. VVR House, SASRM Heritage House and CVRM Heritage house can be visited at an entrance fee of Rs 50.

There are not allowing outside visitors to look the palace inside...Many visitors are visiting from many locations but it's hard that they are not allowing us to experience the palace even for visiting....

Not quite sure why Chettinad features here. The Chettinad mansions are mind blowing phenomenal. Their facades are imposing. We were lucky to be invited by a Chettiar couple to see their house while exploring the facades. The scale of the house cannot be described. The Burma teak and tiles from UK were exquisite. The courtyards will leave you spell bound. Do drive around the villages of Athangudi and Kanadukathan.

Old bungalows kept very clean. The place seems to be very quiet, not many movements. If you are lucky, you might be invited to visit the houses.

The houses are very huge and beautuful. The roads are also very clean and straight. This place (kanadukathan @ chetinad) is a must visit. There is a railway station named chettinad which is roughly 1hr from tiruchirapalli.

The hotel is a renovated old house - very nicely done.
The staff are exceptionally warm and welcoming and you are encouraged to treat the place like your home.
There are no TVs or mini bars in the rooms, but this didn’t worry us.
The food is good and plentiful.
There is also a swimming pool and lots of areas where you can relax after sightseeing.
There are lots of activities that you join, walking tours, cooking demonstrations and a guided cycle ride.

were Going to stay a few nights but checked out early were really disappointed. Most of the mansions are locked up and you can only view from outside - the couple you can see are in interesting to walk around and take photographs but there’s not much else. The tile making was interesting but this takes about half an hour. Do yourself a favor if you have to just stop in for lunch or a morning visit and pass through and to stay in Thanjavur. There is absolutely no option for dining anywhere else but your hotel and as they have a cup to the audience the food will probably be as bad as it was in the Luxury hotel we stayed in. We traveled in India for years and this is probably one of the worst places we visited.

The Nagarathas were the industrialists who played an important role in the British trade routes. These homes are collections of various architectural designs designed to show off wealth. Not many homes are open. A few are being converted to boutique hotels.

We stayed at a tastefully built home in a place called Rangiem. The architecture was uniquely Chettinad in ambience. The owner showed us a much older home too near this property that helped us understand more about Chettinad culture.

The hospitality extended by Mr Vairavan was outstanding.

I would highly recommend this place for anyone wanting to enjoy a quiet, comfortable getaway. There is a kitchen attached too!
