Theyyam (Teyyam,Theyam, Theyyattam) is a popular ritual form of worship in Kerala, India, predominantly in the Kolathunadu area (consisting of present-day Kasargod, Kannur Districts, Mananthavady Taluk of Wayanad and Vadakara and Koyilandy Taluks of Kozhikode of Kerala) and also in South Canara and Kodagu of Karnataka as a living cult with several thousand-year-old traditions, rituals and customs.
The performers of Theyyam belong to the community which are in below level in ancient caste structure formed by Namboothiri brahmins in kerala, and have an important position in Theyyam. The people of these districts consider Theyyam itself as a channel to a God and they thus seek blessings from Theyyam. A similar custom is followed in the Mangalore region of neighbouring Karnataka known as Bhuta Kola.

It was an amazing stay on top of the hill in the middle of greenery and fresh air to breathe. And what more can you ask when you get fresh homemade food to eat. It's a kid friendly location so kids got to enjoy most with the nature around and explore their own world of adventures.

Good place to stay out of the hustle bustle noise...we had relaxing time here with family. . Room are very large and spacious, cool breeze in this hot summer. Host tries to make it more comfortable for all .. we arrived late in the night around 11:30 by bus and host was constantly in touch with us, restaurants nearby were closed due to local festival but host got us breakfast. I would recommend this place for a breakaway and relaxation..
