1. Kalakshetra Foundation
What is it? A school, cultural academy, museum and performance centre all rolled into one. Kalakshetra is dedicated to preserving and teaching classical Indian dance, music, art, and history. Established in 1936, it represents the essence of South India.
Why go? Whether you’re an aficionado or just want to experience the best of Tamil arts and culture, a visit to Kalakshetra is a must. There’s plenty to do – visiting the museum and arts and crafts centre, relaxing in the leafy grounds – but don’t miss catching a performance from classical dance artists.
