sculpture on the wall of Chinniyan tank/Chinnayan Kulam of the cheiftain's daughter?



The Education of the Chieftain's Daughter

In the 16th Century a Chieftain in India who ruled over the area called Chengam named Chinniyan decided to give his daughter a gift.

But what to give a Indian Princess who has everything she could want?

Sex, drugs and rock & roll of course!

It seems the Chieftain's Daughter was more interested in living the single life of a princess then to settle down and get married. So the sneaky Chieftain decided to use his present to subliminally persuade his daughter to change her mind.




'After the Bath' by Jean-Léon Gérôme 19th century



A grand Bath was built for the daughter to lounge around and bath like a royal she was. A marble pool and steps would have dominated the spectacular bath room with art and sculptures carved right into the stone.

Knowing of his daughters wishes of celibacy, the Chieftain chose an unusual choice of scenes to commission throughout the structure.

The Education of the Chieftain's Daughter continued...



Hoping to educate his daughter on the pleasures of life, erotic scenes can be found carved right into the walls, floor and even the steps of her bath house.

"it is well known that smoking of ganja and tobacco was common among Tamils in the past. Terracotta pots and pipes found in the archaeological sites at Adichanallur, Arikkamedu and Kodumanal stand testimony to it.

But we have not come across hookah jars made of glass or Chinese clay so far”

- cultural historian Madhusudhanan Kalaichelvan




Not stopping with just the erotic theme, the chieftain included depictions of sadhu's smoking cannabis from a hookah. It turns out the truly interesting part about the carving is not what they are smoking, but what they are smoking it from...

“The sculpture shows a hookah jar and pipes with perfect finishing and it belongs to the late 16th century. Paintings and sculptures largely dealt with religion, and only during the Nayak and Vijayanagar period, non-religious themes gained prominence. The art in the tank deals with many social themes and has erotic content too,”

- K.T. Gandhirajan



The Hookah used in the 16th century carving had a glass jar base, different then the terracotta and wooden bases originally thought to be the only styles present at the time. Although no specimens remain of the hookah jar pipe in this part of India from this time period, the carving shows they did exist.

I could not find if the daughter ever married or settled down, but I would like to think the Chieftain's subliminal ploy worked to get the 'ball rolling'...

The daughter's bath house has become a national landmark in India, preserving the Chieftain's lasting lesson to his daughter that stands the test of time... Sex, drugs and rock & roll!
