House of Ramapuram
They say every story has a beginning.
The story of the House of Ramapuram had its beginnings in a modest house in a small town, Pala, in the eastern hill tracts of Kottayam, in Kerala state, India. Over the last hundred years, the family earned its reputation and standing in the society, through highly educated, accomplished and eminent personalities of their time.
Into this family was born, the young and impressionable Emmanuel Ramapuram, in the year 1889. Having lived through the epochal transition from one century to another, he was appointed as the Ranger-in-charge of South Canara and Coorg under the Madras Presidency.
He came, he saw, and he was conquered, by the pristine natural beauty and culture of Coorg. He perhaps didn’t know it then, but this was the beginning of a story that would span a hundred years, enthralling entire generations and touching lives across the world.
