82.Vayalvaram House

Vayalvaram House before year 2007

Vayalvaram Veedu (Veedu meaning house) was where Sree Narayana Guru was born. Vayalvaram compound was about one acre in area. It was an tradinational house of those times. It was a small house with three rooms. On the south side of the compound is a temple called "Manackal Bhagavathi Temple". This small 18th century thatched house was in the orininal form untill 2007.

In 2007 a building was built around the house to proctect the house. However I along with many others feel that if the 18th century house could have been preserved in its original state till 2007, it could have been preserved in the same way without losing the sernity. The old feel has now gone. Almost everyone apart from the people who built it would have felt the same.
