Dakshin Chithra : A must see place in Chennai

If any one are planning to go for a pleasant visit with the family I would suggest you this place. " Dakshin Chithra ". I feel this place is mainly started to preserve the South Indian culture and tradition. It is basically a time rewinding machine taking us back to 150 years.This place looks awesome for some one who is interested to know about the cultural values.This heritage village was first open to people from 1996 December.They work six days a week.Only Tuesday is a holiday for them.
