Situated in South Chennai, this unique cultural space, created by Tara Books, is dedicated to exploring the form of the book. Our titles are particularly visual, and we work with a range of artists and art forms.

You’re invited to view our ongoing exhibitions and specially commissioned wall murals, created by a range of artists who work with us. Watch visiting artists at work, or just relax with a book in our outdoor gallery. Why not also browse through our books and art prints in the bookstore. Children are especially invited to use our dedicated reading corner.

Stay in touch with us via our website and social media pages to know about our forthcoming activities, including the launch of an exciting new annual Carnival of Books Festival at Tara Book Building.

Open Monday–Saturday
Admission is free



We would like to thank Hivos for their generous support for Book Building.
