The Proposal is to Restore and Conserve the old Buildings and Padinjare Chira (The Western Water Body) as it is in dire need of Conservation and maintenance and to update the building to suit the Present and Future requirements.
Brahmaswom Madhom is one among the four Madhoms established by four disciples of AdiSankaracharya. This institute is known for imparting classes in the Vedas, through rigorous methodologies of the Gurukula system. The school, one among the few that has survived, practices the tradition of VEDIC CHANTING which has found a place in UNESCO’s Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity in 2008.
The complex consists of
• 3 Madhoms
• A water body called PadinjareChira
• A building for Accommodation and few Temples
The Madhom and the water body next to it (Padinjare Chira) are located close to the centre of Thrissur town in Kerala.
The Madhom and the water body has got historical links with Sree Vadakkunnathan temple and together they account for a large wealth of the cultural traditions of Kerala which includes the Thrissur Pooram, Vedic chanting in the Kerala style and also the rich architectural vocabulary which is in crucial need of conservation.
