Take a walk through Dakshinachitra, a museum of heritage houses from South India. A museum of HOUSES! Each house once lived in and much loved, and each house a treasure trove of stories, just waiting to be told. They tell stories of the rich diversity of lifestyles in South India – from the spoken language to the way society is ordered. They give you a glimpse into the lives of people who lived in these houses, the Gods they worshipped and the customs they followed. You’ll see how each house was built to be harmonious with the local geography, and how each house supported the occupation of the community that lived within. Come explore Dakshinachitra, the living museum, and listen to stories – of art, culture and lifestyles of South India.
