Dr. Herman Gundert (1814-1893) is probably the single most revered modern western figure in Kerala. He was a German missionary, scholar, and lexicographer who compiled the Malayalam grammar book Malayalabhaasha Vyakaranam (1859), a Malayalam-English dictionary (1872), and contributed to translating the Bible into Malayalam. Beginning in 1872, Gundert primarily lived and worked in this bungalow for 20 years where he also contributed to the fields of history, geography and astronomy. Situated about 20 kms from Thalassery town and perched on a hill overlooking a river and some striking scenery, this bungalow built in the typical English architectural style is a popular Heritage building today, and one of the staple site seeing places in Kerala
