Your hunt for Bharata Natyam, Carnatic music books ends here

If you are looking for books on Bharata Natyam, Carnatic music or books (or CDs, and DVDs) on any Indian arts, head straight to The Karnatic Music Book Centre in Royapettah, Chennai. The small shop, located near the Deccan Plaza hotel (near the Royapettah bridge), has all cultural books under one roof. The shop is run by Mr Vinod Kumar and Mr Hemant Kumar.

You will find one of them in the shop itself. They are extremely courteous  and helpful.

They also have a Web site: http: . Use the drop-down menu at the top to change your preference for currency. If you are buying from India, click on the drop-down menu to change it to Indian Rupees.

The address is:

The Karnatic Music Book Centre,

23A, Sripuram First Street,

Royapettah, Chennai – 600 014

Phone: (91) 044 – 28111716 ;  28113253

When you head towards Mylapore from Royapettah, take the road on the left of the Royapettah flyover. The road that turns left next to the Deccan Plaza hotel is Sripuram First Street. The shop is at the second building on the left.

Please don’t rely on Google Map search. Though the Google search throws up the correct address, the map shows a wrong location.
