Indigenous Tamil architecture with red-tiled roofs, internal, pillared courtyards of domestic proportions , a wooden stairway, make the Gate House one of the three hotels in Nagapattinam revitalised by Neemrana. The Gate House has been restored to its simple nobility and also has a cooling pool now laid in its court at the back !
