Mudaliarkuppam is a popular place of interest that attracts myriads of tourists from all parts of the country. Mudaliarkuppam is located in the district of Kanchipuram, 92 km from Chennai and 36 km down Mamallapuram on ECR (East Coast Road). Mudaliarkuppam is an incredible tourist destination. Tourism industry in the idyllic place is growing by leaps and bounds.
Visitors and tourists visit this place alike, to while away their time on the choicest array of rowboats, pedal boats and motorboats. The Tamil Nadu Tourism Development Corporation undertakes and preserves this unusual boating house. In fact, Tamil Nadu Tourism Development Corporation came up with new ideas and policies to make it even more attractive. Recently, they have launched a special boat riding facility at its Raindrop Boat House in Mudaliarkuppam. It is called kayak, the one-seater boat. At present there are fifty-four varieties of boats. The purchases include two-seaters pedalling boats, speedboats, motorboats and one-seater pedal boats. Special boat races are organised every year. College and university students participate here in great enthusiasm and unison.
There is an island approximately 4 km from the Raindrop Boat House, in the expanse of the waters in Mudaliarkuppam. Tourists are allowed to spend some time in the island and tents are available for this purpose. Unfortunately, there is no decent place to have one's food in Mudaliarkuppam. The best-available solution is to carry food from Chennai or any other decent place along the way.
In order to enjoy the famed boating bonanza, tourists need to pay a specific amount of money, depending on the type of boat and duration of time. At present, it is recorded that Mudaliarkuppam attracts an approximate decent crowd of one thousand and five hundred tourists on Sundays and other holidays. Also eight hundred to one thousand tourists attract tourists on Saturdays.
