Madurai, Madurai District, Tamil Nadu
100 year old palatial Bungalow popularly known as ‘Kudai Veedu’ (Umbrella house) overlooking the pride of South India, Meenakshi temple.

This heritage house of the temple city has retained its antique value by maintaining the front structure while modernising the rooms of the house.

It is perfect for those to experience culture by walking around the lanes which housed the original city 1500 years ago. These lanes hold the vibrant culture of the people living in them.

Senior citizens please note that the house is in third floor without lift. Only steps. Public and Paid parking available within a block, No parking within the premises. We have a door bell switch at the right side of the 5th staircase while entering the building.

Even after staying here, we are not sure how to categorize this concept. Kolam Homes is part AirBnB, part B&B, part resident hotel, just not sure. However you categorize it, it met our needs and was a great place to stay in Madurai. Most of the hotels are over closer to the train and bus stations, but Kolam is located about five minutes south of Meenakshi Temple, likely your main destination in Madurai. It is only about a 20 minute walk to where the hotels are, which you may need to go to for restaurants, as there are few in the temple area and south, great street food stalls being the exception. When you arrive, one of you, if more than one, might wind your way up the several signed flights of stairs to let Juggernaut know you have arrived. He will help you with your luggage and anything else you need during your stay. We weren’t sure what to consider him. The Kolam information refers to him as a “caretaker”, but he is much more than that. He is there 24/7, and will do his best...
