The cowshed adjacent to the granary is built using timber with geometric designs cut out from the wooden screen guarding the cows.

Koothattukulam House

1998

In terms of architectural style, the Koothattukulam granary from Kottayam looks similar to the Puthuppally Syrian Christian house. The two-storeyed house has a staircase on the right which meets at the front, as the solid handrail appears to wrap a portion of the building in elegance. The stairs and the arched verandah represent the British influence and westernisation of the time. The wooden granary downstairs is replaced to set up a space for exhibition. It displays mural paintings and antique containers. However, the central granary and the adjacent rooms on the upper floor remain as it is.
