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, a royal manor-house

Harivihar is a royal manor-house built around 1850 by the Kadathanad royal family, who had ruled the northern parts of Kerala. They had built the house to facilitate their children’s’ education, which was not easily accessible in those days.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. The house had a main block, southern wing (thekkini) and northern wing (vadakkini) and there was a central courtyard separating the two wings and the main block.

In the late 1940s, Dr. K.P.Appu Nair, who was trying to establish his medical practice in Calicut, bought the house from the royal heirs. As a family-owned business, Harivihar ayurveda resort was formally opened to guests from February 2003 onwards and has ever since been receiving guests from all over the World.
