A must visit place to know how paper is made from cotton waste and so precise and accurate. Mesmerizing art work from the staff and great exhibition of art work. Entry free. Prices are a bit on higher side for the exhibits.

If there is one place to buy or see or feel or smell hand-made paper in and around Pondy, then this is definitely it. Spoilt for choice... Definitely worth going to.
