Located in the Chettinadu area of the southern state of Tamil Nadu, Karaikudi is famous for the unique limestone houses and structures spread throughout the city. Karaikudi lies in between two prominent place of Trichy and Rameshwaram. The city derieved its name from the plant Karai that is found abundant in the area. During the late 1800s, Karaikudi rose to prominence as a major financial center, and became the most prosperous city in the region. Today, Karaikudi is a small city of about 110,000, and is famous for its excellent cuisine, which features a wide number of spices, tastes and vegetarian ingredients. Additionally, as many Chettiars (the merchant castes who dominated Chettinadu) emigrated overseas, Chettinadi cuisine features a number of outside ingredients, including Burmese sticky rice.
