Aayiram Jannal Veedu is a famous landmark in the town of Karaikudi. The literal translation of the name of the place means ‘The House with a Thousand Windows’; a very apt name for a house that has thousand windows!
The House is very famous among the tourists who make it a point to visit the place when in Karaikudi. In fact, once in the town simply ask anyone for directions to the House. The House is built on 20,000 square feet of area and is very spacious. The House was built in 1941 and costed 1 lac 25 thousand at the time; a meager sum of money now. The House has 25 huge rooms and five very large halls. There are some 20 doors in the House along with 100 windows.
The first thing that strikes when one enters the House is that although it is in shambles and poorly maintained, the original style of architecture and grandeur still remains intact.
