nalukettu home interior






Kerala architecture follows Thatchu Shastra, a science of carpentry that directs the building/construction nuances. The most notable feature of Kerala architecture lies in the long, steep roofs that were built primarily to face the heavy monsoons.
According to the science of Vasthu, every building on Earth has a life of its own and when built in the right way, following the rules, one can enjoy harmony and success in life.
In a typical Kerala home, you will notice a large home built within a large courtyard. Kerala houses were integrated with Nalukkettus (4 blocked constructions), Ettukkettu (8 blocked constructions), or Pathinarukkettu (16 blocked constructions) depending on the affluence of the owner.
