Travel Shot: Kumbakonam Vettalai (Betel Leaves)

Apparently, the town also happens to be one of the leading producers of betel leaves and areca nuts. In fact, the betel leaves produced in Kumbakonam are believed to be among the best in the world, as far as quality is concerned.

Read all about our first tryst with the famed vettalai aka betel leaves of Kumbakonam, on my photo blog.
