Mantra Koodam - CGH Earth - Kumbakonam - Tamil Nadu
Mantra Koodam is a divine experience nestled in Veppathur, Kumbakonam – the town of 5,000 temples. The property is designed like an ‘agraharam’ – the characteristically Brahmin street lined with ‘illams’ (homes). It’s a tribute to the region’s heritage and its historic stature as a seat of power in South India. The living spaces offer a window into what was once a predominant way of life, where cultures, communities and traditions thrived in harmony. The chimes of the tolling bell that welcome you, are a precursor to the sublime experience that awaits. You step into a street modeled after a typical 'agraharam' – literally translating into ‘garland of houses’. These houses, or ‘illams’, line both sides of the streets. The cottages are designed like traditional Tamil homes – with large verandahs, Athangudi tiles on the floor, ornate Burmese teak doors and open-to-air bathrooms. Strolling through the property, you will come across lush green coconut groves, temple shrines and the occasional peacock that has made a home here. The landscape takes your senses on a much deeper journey, elevating your holiday to a higher level of transcendence.

A Synergy of Flavours
Mantra Koodam brings the distinctive taste of Cholanadu cuisine that sings of traditional flavours and local tales. All meals here are carefully prepared, keeping in mind the delicate balance of the four primary flavours: sweet, spicy, bitter and sour. Every dish on the menu carries years of tradition handed down over generations, perfected over time. A playground for spices, the unique character of these dishes is the ingenious blend of spices such as star anise, with other Indian ingredients that draw you into a sensory explosion. The primary diet of the region being vegetarian, the chef conjures up his kitchen magic to bring unpredictable yet unbelievably tasty flavours together. You can even try your own hand at cooking at an interactive cooking session, where you’ll get to learn age-old secrets of a delightful cuisine.
