Our story

The Nagarathar or Nattukottai Chettiars are historically a Tamil community of merchants from Chettinad their traditional home (Pudukkottai, Ramnad & Sivaganai) in Tamilnadu, India. The merchants were generally involved in money lending. Their business thrived in Burma (now Myanmar), Ceylon (now Sri Lanka), Malaya (now Malaysia), Singapore, Vietnam and other South East Asian countries. This place was called Kittengi. The Kittengi served as their business centre and residence. The Kittengi also housed a food mess to serve food for the residents. In the past food was only served to the residents, their friends and invited guests. In recent years some of the Kittengi food messes have been opened to public. We welcome you to our Kittengi.
