KKP Walks
Come experience the history of Chennai for yourself, by joining the Kathai, Kalai, Parampariyam Walks.
February 8-February 8

Discover the stories that shaped South India.

Kathai walk explores the tales of the Dasavataram, the 10 traditional manifestations of Lord Vishnu. Modern interpretations of the Dasavataram are placed across the Centre. Enriching the installations are the oft-forgotten stories of the avatars themselves.

Kalai walk showcases the indigenous art and architecture of the region through multiple elements that have been incorporated in the contemporary design of the Centre including the soaring Gopurams and their intricately carved bases, the pillared mandapams, and the various bell installations at each of the four entrances, all an ode to traditional temple architecture with a contemporary and sometimes playful twist.

Parampariyam walk features a depiction of the traditions and history of this great city and the stories behind them, in the form of maps, motifs, coins and seals, all etched into stone and a not-to-miss hand-painted mural, which traces the historical and cultural legacy of Chennai, detailing the evolution of the city, from 250,000 B.C. through the Colonial Era till the present day.

Experience one of these three unique narratives every week with the Kathai Kalai Parampariyam walks.
