HARIVIHAR HERITAGE HOMESTEAD

Abode of the divine

SOUTH INDIA - Kerala, Calicut

Harivihar which literally means abode of the divine is a 170 year old painstakingly restored royal heritage homestead located in Calicut, the old seaport city in Kerala through which Vasco de Gama entered the fabled Indies. Harivihar is a former royal manor-house built around 1850 by the Kadathanad royal family, who had ruled the northern parts of Kerala.The house was built according to Vasthu principles in traditional padinijitta (west-facing) style, as was prevalent then. On the south-west side was the family temple with Durga as the presiding deity, and a large traditional pond on the north-west side with perennial water supply, was used for swimming and bathing. Harivihar Ayurveda resort offers its guests the unparalleled experience of staying in a heritage ambience and benefit from the goodness of Ayurveda and Yoga, two great contributions of India to mankind. Harivihar is a Green leaf accredited center of excellence for Ayurveda treatments and panchakarma therapies.

Cuisine at Harivihar

What we eat and drink plays an important role in our well-being. It is not only what we eat, but the way we eat, the surroundings in which we eat, the internal condition during the time of consumption and even the attitude of the person who prepares the food are significant. According to Ayurveda incorrect food habits is the main physical causative factor of diseases.

There is no standard diet for everyone, or any minimum daily requirements. Its concern is that the food we take in and the way we take it, are in harmony with our individual body constitution and that it should be adjustable for seasonal variations as well as for various stages of an individual’s life. ‘We are what we eat’ holds a lot of truth here…
