It was built by the Imperial Forest Service in 1929 under British colonial rule. The original purpose of the bungalow was to see the approach of the Tippu Sultan's army via Nadukani Churam. It is situated in Chandakunnu near the Chaliyar River. The bungalow is surrounded by 100-year-old mahogany trees planted during the colonial times for their use as timber which were to be shipped to Portugal by the Portuguese.
