Praveen Maranat your host aged 39, was in the merchant navy for the last 15 years. After sailing the seven seas and seeing the world I decided to come back to my roots. My wife Vidya is a post graduate in Maths, presently teaching in our primary school which is managed by the Maranat Mana Family Trust. We have one son and one daughter. We are staying with my parents while my two brothers are settled in Bangalore.

Maranat Mana, my ancestral home has many members and we are a closely knit joint family. Although we all don’t stay under one roof, our binding strength is our family diety “Lord Ganesha”.Devotees from far and near come here to offer their prayers and seek his blessings. Our ancestral home is a pathinarukettu (4 courtyards) and has a pathayapura (granary and guest house) which is a fully furnished 3-storey building where you will be staying as our guest.

We invite you to stay with us and experience and understand the rich namboothiri culture and tradition which is perhaps the only continuous linage of the age old Vedic traditions. We offer you one of the most original and unique experiences in “God’s own country”

We are very much interested to host Indology (India Specific Studies) students / researchers. We offer all guidance and assistance.
It will be our pleasure to welcome you into our midst
