Parambath Edalakulath Illam is the name of a House built according to the principles of Catuḥśāla (literally: “a house with four halls”) in the ancient science of traditional Indian architecture (Vastu-Shastra) [i.e., vāstuvidyā or vāstuśāstra].—The word catuśśāla is derived from catur (‘four’) and śāla (‘hall’/‘room’). These buildings (e.g., Kammatathillam) are known by different words in different parts of India: Haveli in North India, Wada in Maharashtra, Rajbari in West Bengal, Chettinadu Houses in Tamilnadu and Nalukettu in Kerala. Kammatathillam is situated in the Village Mavoor of the Taluk Kozhikkode in the District Kozhikkode (Malabar region). Such houses and courtyards are typically built in or before 1950, following the rules and regulations prescribed in the classical texts.
