  • It is amazing that in the middle of the jungle was built a stone house with a beautiful view. The same Museum is not impressed us much experience, but I believe that it is worth it.

  • Beautiful location with a wonderful view, peaceful place ,run by the Benedictine priests. Located near the thangamale bird sanctuary. 
  • It is not common to see a Benedictine monastery in asia ... too bad the monastery is open only for two rooms ... it would have been nice to see more
