Chambathu House, Palakkad

Chambathu Veedu or Chambathu House near Chittur in Palakkad district of Kerala, India, is an age old and historically significant building. Once the abode of the rulers of the then native states, the Chambathu family now has around 188 members. It is believed that Thunchathu Ramanujan Ezhuthachan, the father of Malayalam language, on his way back from a sojourn in Tamilnadu halted at this place and was overwhelmed by its scenic beauty and asked some land from Chambathu family.
