Kandathu Tharavadu

Kandathu Tharavad is the ideal place to experience the true village life of Kerala in royal settings. The majestic 'Tharavad', the ancestral home of the Kandath family, is set in a rustic village covered in carpets of green paddy fields, outside the scenic Palakkad Town. Built in 1794, the design is based on traditional Kerala architecture.
The most striking feature of the house is the frontal raised area (Purathalum) with grand bulbous pillars fashioned in teak at each corner .There is also a reception chamber in which there is a Nadumuttam, or open area, in the center created by four roofs descending into the room to shoulder height allowing the rains to splash into a central sunken area. Spacious rooms combine modern comforts with an historic feel.
A morning visit to the corner tea shop or an evening walk through the village and through the green paddies to watch the sunset are among the pleasures. Cycling trips or a bullock cart ride along small winding roads through unspoilt countryside are some of the i teresting activities awaiting you.
