Actually it is the second house that hosted the Guddadha Bhoota serial, not the first one. I didn't take a distance shot of the Guddadha Bhoota house.

Geographically the current Kerala and Coastal Karnataka are contiguous and historical had very similar customs and cuisine. Man, I gotta photograph my dad's ancestral home soon, before MRPL or Mangalore SEZ makes complete mess out of it.

I am renaming this thread so that members can post other ancient homes outside of coastal Karnataka.

Nice pics, Samurai! The exterior shots of the house resembles my ancestral home at Southern Orissa, but it did not have the exquisite wood carvings on the pillars and ceilings, though it was built in the same era.
It's a pity that we had to sell it 3 decades ago.

spitfire, please post the pics. i think the name is Kunnathu Veedu (meaning kunnathu house). i have seen quite good new style old nalukettu and new style Verandah houses. most are crap. but some are easily beautiful. Please post the old red oxide mirror floors. just love them.

got a pic of kunnathu house from flickr

thanks for the new thread.people from kerala will feel the nostalgia.
My family's Tharavad is at Bharanganam ,Pala(Kottayam).I lost the old pics with me.Now ,they rebuilt tharavad with the old tharavad "inside"! .
I have noticed that many of the landlord houses are based near a river(in Kerala).
sadly ,many of the ara-pura veedu were dismantled for wood decades ago itself .

Any how keep posting more pictures of old karnataka homes. I have travelled through shimoga and there also exists some old homes similar to that of south kerala (central travancore) even the cattle shed is similar to that region of kerala . The topography is also similar.

Good job , continue it with more pictures of old homes from entire karnataka. Kerala homes have vanished long before .
Will you explain the difference between the architecture of north kerala and south kerala.

Here's a pic of our home at Fort Cochin.
Was built by the British more than 100 years back.

It is a beautiful home, but reminds me of the grandfather's axe or George Washington's axe.
