A view from the terrace of my ancestral home!
Temple of Lord Krishna built by my great grand father!!!
Yeah! Koonthankulam is my ancestral home! It is a beautiful village full of greens situated in the district of Tirunelveli!
I have lot of sweet memories about Koonthankulam! when we were kids we used to spend our summer vacations there! We used to have lot of fun playing around as we are 9 cousin sisters and brothers! From morning till evening only fun and also some friendly fights! :P I really miss that good old days!
Koonthankulam is also a bird sanctuary and lot of foreigners and people all around from India visit this place! Farming is the main occupation held out there! The people there lead a very simple life and very down to earth!!

Speaking about my ancestrol home it was built some 150 years back and looks like a palace! My mom has six sisters and a brother and all their marriages were held in the home itself as it has a huge hall similar to a marriage hall! There is a temple of lord Krishna which was built by my great grand father and still maintained by my uncle and aunts!
The picts below is the hall of my ancestral home where all my aunts and uncle's marriages were held and where we all cousin brothers and sisters spent our vacations playing shuttle and lot more during our vacations!!
Flowers decorated in a brass pot by my aunt who stays there!! Subbulakshmi is her name and she is very talented.. infact all 6 sisters are very very talented and artistik!!
Beautiful rangoli made by my aunt with rice powder!!!
Now many of the Tamil movies are shot in my ancestral home and the house has become very popular because of the movies shot there! People who come to see the birds also visit the house to saying that they wanted to see the house where the movie was shot!
A really scary narrow stair case at our ancestral home!!
I'm really proud to be one of the grand daughter of that house and love all my aunts uncle and my 3 cousin sisters Vidhya, Sridevi, Anushiya and my cousin brothers Ramesh anna, Rajesh, Mahesh, Arvind and also my brother Suresh! We all are married now and well settled and all have kids but still make it a point to meet once a year in summer vacations at my ancestral home! :) To know more about Koonthakulam visit here
