This place is very near to the base of the tadiandamol hill. If u are planning a trek to tadiandamol peak, you can visit this place on the way. Takes hardly 10-15 mins. Dont miss out the secret room in the first floor.

This place is almost in the top of the hill and good views around. The palace itself needs repair and maintenance. After visiting Chelavara falls, this is nearby.
