I visited Olappamanna this summer while on vacation from school. We drove from Palakkad. The drive itself is beautiful and breath taking. The manna is very well preserved and Mrs Sridevi did a great job of explaining the functions of each room and article. The woodwork inside the manna is exquisite. The rooms at the home stay are clean and airy. Mr Damodaran is very knowledgeable and is a walking encyclopaedia of information about the manna and Namboothiris in general. Mrs Sridevis is an excellent cook. The couple is very hospitable and warm and you'll never want to leave Olappamanna.
