Gundert Bungalow

Situated 20 km from Kannur, near Thalasseri town, on the National Highway at Illikunnu hill is the Gundert Bungalow. The Bungalow is of historical significance as it was the residence of Dr. Herman Gundert, the revered German missionary, scholar and lexicographer. He lived here for 20 years from 1839 and has written 18 books in Malayalam including a grammar book. He had also established a church on Nettur Hill in 1889. Gundert Bungalow is a prominent structure with wide doors and verandahs and deep tiled eaves. It was here that one of the first Malayalam dictionaries and the first Malayalam Newspaper - 'Paschimodayam' - took shape. Gundert's bungalow, now houses part of the Nettur Technical Training Foundation, a unique institution started by the Swiss Foundation.
