Panicker House


Fallen prey to the tests of time, the Panicker House, a century old Nalukettu was reclaimed through maximum reuse of materials. With its long verandahs, three chambers, the courtyard, the store and the chawadi, the house was closely associated with rituals and ceremonies of the nearby temple. Once made of painted laterite stones, the 24 pillars encircling the verandahs and courtyard have been redone with teak wood, its rings and knots visible. During the restoration, the intricate carvings on the triangular dormers on all four elevations of the Nalukettu were conserved to its former glory. The excellence of the carpenters under the leadership of Muthashari Radhakrishnan, is evident on the door panels and facades.
