Nalukettu style Kerala home with nice looking outside view
Nalukettu style Kerala home is the traditional homestead of old Tharavadu where many generations of a matrilineal family lived. These types of buildings are typically found in the Indian state of Kerala. The traditional architecture is typically a rectangular structure where four halls are joined together with a central courtyard open to the sky.
Long back in Kerala, we had houses built in traditional style with nalukettu and stones without masonry but polish works done. These types are very stylish and built with 4 halls in rectangular shape joined together making a courtyard in the center. All sides resembles the same entrance and the roofing used is old type.This home consists of 6 bedrooms which is vast enough for a big joint family.
