WHAT MAKES IT SPECIAL

Experience the secret heart of Tamil Nadu at Mangala, a small, beautifully restored 4-bedroom village home in the hamlet of Thirupugalur, 2 hours east of Tanjore.


Buoyed by bold colours and contextual elements, the four bedrooms provide intimate spaces to retreat within. Outside, the two courtyards and the wide running thinnai (front verandah) allow you to commune as individual travellers or as a family group. Mangala can be booked on an individual room basis or as a whole house for small groups.
