Hari Shenoy's Bungalow

Location: near Thirumala Devaswom Temple, Cherlai, Mattanchery

Hari Shenoy's bungalow was the residence of R.S. Hari Shenoy(1849-1901), a nobleman and also a merchant. This aesthetically painted vernacular-style architectured building was built in 1874 and is located in front of the Thirmuala Devaswom temple whose administrator he had been then. The bungalow is built on half an acre of land that is currently owned by the temple. He was an eminent personality from the Konkani speaking Gowda Saraswath Brahmin community. After his death, this bungalow was handed over to the Thirumala Devaswom.
