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.

However, there is much more to it than meets the eye. The real meeting between people is the meeting of their minds. When we greet one another with namaste, it means, ‘may our minds meet’, indicated by the folded palms placed before the chest. The bowing down of the head is a gracious form of extending friendship in love, respect and humility. We are looking forward to sharing our thoughts with you!
