Agraharam Resorts, a cluster of independent villas, is located at Thirunelli near Mananthavady, in Wayanad District. It showcases the immense diversity of Wayanad, the land of spices.
 
Wayanad is a unique district, that lies within the ambit of the leading tourist centres of South India like Ootty, Mysore, Coorg, Kozhikode and Kannur. Agraharam Resorts, promoted by Greenroutes Hospitality, is located at 30 kms from Mananthavady, 135 kms from Calicut, 120 kms from Mysore and 250 kms from Bangalore.
 
The beauty of the green landscape, crystalline streams, mist-clad mountains and the silent atmosphere are some of the “luxuries” that you get at Thirunelli Agraharam Resorts. You can eat the most declicious food from its multi-cuisine restaurant, looking at the ravishing beauty of hills and dales. Indeed it is a rendezvous with nature, an excellent miniature of Kerala, the God’s own country.
 
The cottages are situated inside the forest, but only 85 mts from the main road that bifurcates the thick forest. The above 85 mts look like a canopy. The resort area is fully protected by barbed wire fencing and power fencing. The Naalukettu restaurant and some of the cottages are facing the reserve forest.
 
The drive to the resort from Kattikulam town (Kerala) or Kutta town (Karnataka) is also through the forest which takes less than an hour. Also important tourist attractions like Kuruva Island, Tholpetty Forest, Pakshipathalam Mount, Irippu Waterfall and Kalindi River are nearby.
 
The resort is very near to Thirunelli Temple which has been a witness to thousands of years of history and a solace to thousands of pilgrims in prayers. The belief is that if you make a visit to Thirunelli temple you will get the same benefit of a pilgrimage made to Kashi. Therefore it is called Thenkashi which means Southern Kashi.
 
The Papanasini River (extinguisher of sins) is on the western side of the temple. The belief is that if we immerse here the ashes of the dead, they get the same benefit that they get at Gaya. Thirunelli is an inseparable part in the writing of history of Wayanad and Kerala. There are two copper plate inscriptions, pertaining to the temple, which date back to 10th century.
 
The stone aqueduct that reaches the temple is also hundreds of years old. Thirunelli has also been made famous by the old Malayalam travelogues “Unniyachi Charitham” and "Kokila Sandesham" (Message through Cuckoo). In short, Agraharam Resorts and Thirunelli, collectively rejuvenate your body, enliven your soul and enrich your knowledge.
 
Cottages

Agraharam Resorts has three types of accommodation; Deluxe cottages, Suite cottages and Twin cottage. Cottages are designed in such a way that almost all of them get a close view of either the mountains or the forest. All the cottages are built up of echo-friendly materials.
 
Tiled roof, wooden ceiling and laterite walls provide them a Malabar touch. There are Ten Deluxe cottages (Sauparnika, Ashokavani, Parnashala, Sreeshylam, Kamyakam, Indeevaram, Nikunjam, Chitrakoodam Panchavadi & Chaithram), 2 Family Cottages (Aranyam and Haritham) and a twin cottage (AlakaNanda).
 
The twin cottage AlakaNanda is a building with two separate cottages and a common living area. It is essentially meant for two close-knit families. In the cottage Alaka, there are two cots each of size 6'x3' and in the cottage Nanda, there is only a double cot of size 6'x5'.
 
The two Family cottages Aranyam and Haritham are facing the forest and each has four cots. They are in a solitary building, isolated from the main area. Each of these cottages has a big room, a kid’s room and a living area. In-front-of the building there is a fairly big court-yard where its inmates can park their vehicle and enjoy bonfire.
