Our ancestral home, called the “Nadikerianda Aine house”, is located at Karada. Over 200 years old, it is one of the oldest and best maintained Aine houses in Coorg.

In traditional architectural style, we have a central court yard (Mundu Mane) surrounded by rooms opening into it. In the days of the joint family system, each branch of the family was allocated a room.

In keeping with tradition, till date, when we gather to celebrate a festival or a wedding at the Aine house, we occupy the traditionally allotted family rooms.
