Kadambavanam Ethnic Resort is a holistic treat for the body, mind and soul not necessarily in that order
For the discerning traveler looking for an authentic cultural experience as well for the Tamilian looking to reconnect to his roots, Kadambavanam offers a comprehensively structured daily program of activities aimed at giving a taste of Tamil living.
For example a ritual in every typical Tamil household is the cleansing of the front yard with water mixed with cow’s dung, which is a natural disinfectant. This is to be done before sunrise. Of course the ritual makes more sense in rural areas where concrete structures and tar roads are still a rarity and village walkways are paved with sand. (remember that ours was and is still a largely agrarian society, with the heart of the country still in it’s villages to quote the father our nation Mahathma Gandhi). This is followed by adorning the space with beautiful ‘Kollams’, which are intricate geometric patterns laid freehand with rice flour by the lady of the house.
At Kadambavanam we repeat this small ritual in front of your hut and would like to share the meaning behind many a traditional ritual followed by Tamilian households .
Nestled in the lap of Mother nature, just breathing in the pure, fresh air here,is enough to calm your senses and we encourage you to extend the tranquility by attending a morning session on Pranayama (rhythmic breathing), Yoga and Meditation at our yoga pavillion.
The idea is to adopt a leisurely rural pace and go for a village walk and observe rural living in the small hamlets around.
We are here to regale you with stories of our colourful history and encourage you to take detours to several lesser known places in and around Madurai, that are steeped in tradition and mythology Discover more about our culture, spiritual practices and our language through discourses and dialogue with eminent scholars.
A well stocked reading lounge with an interesting collection of books that would appeal to all age groups and audio visual facilities with an impressive collection of materials relating to our heritage and customs, religion and philosophy, including classic old Tamil movies complete the experience.
