Thathachi Manai Dharma Stay

Sandanapalli, Tamil Nadu: Called 'Little Britain' for its picturesque countryside and pleasant weather, the area around this beautiful farmhouse is nestled about 90 minutes from Electronic City. A 6-acre farm overlooking a natural lake, it is idyllic for city-dwellers who want to get away from hectic schedules and get back in touch with nature. Wake up to the sounds of nature, and even some farm animals!

AD and Lalitha built this farmhouse as a legacy to leave behind for their children and grandchildren. It is constructed using traditional mud compacting techniques, with domed ceilings of mud bricks adding rustic beauty to the dwelling. Stone pillars surround a courtyard and the antique pieces that can be found throughout the homestay each have their own story to tell. AD loves to collect antique pieces and is particularly passionate about fossils. 

Social Impact

In all of our work, Dharma and our partners try to promote social development activities. AD and Lalitha promote education in the local village by conducting English language lessons. Their extended family of doctors works in the remote regions of the nearby bamboo forest to provide healthcare for the tribal peoples of the area.
