About mayapot platation villas

Mayapott is an illusion and like it's name suggest a mystical point. this is a home that is literally built on a rock. The house rests in the "chekuthanmala" (devils rock) valley with views from the house facing the hills all around. Set amidst 100 acres of cardamom plantation, Mayapott is built around a huge rock, which was used as a resting point for hunters. Legend has it that the bonfire around which they rested was a safe refuge from the herd of wild elephants that raged the area. Built entirely out of chiseled rock from the region, the structure is unique in the fact that little cement is used to bond the building rocks together. E ach rock was painstakingly templated on to the other. The wood ('mullu venga') that is used around the house is of a special variety and can with stand wet weather for years together.

A bridge connects the two portions of the house, and a stream flows under it - a beautiful experience during the rains.
