It is accessible by rail and road from all the important cities of Kerala.

The Thunchan memorial is situated at the site of the house in which he was born. It is said that Thunchath Ezhuthachan prompted the Sanskrit poet Melpathoor Narayana Bhattathiri to write his Magnum Opus, the “Narayaneeyam”. Thunchath Ezhuthachan re-wrote the two great epics “Ramayanam” and “Mahabharatham” in Malayalam.

Thunchath Ezhuthachan was born in a Chakala Nair family. This was one of the many under privileged classes of those days. His parents belonged to Thrikkandiyoor, in Vettathunad, which is in central Kerala. Vettathunad could boast of three of the most famous temples of those days, Thrikkandiyoor, Thiparangode, and the Thirunavaya. Thunchan’s house was just one Kilometer away from the Thrikkandiyoor Temple of which the presiding deity is Lord Mahadeva.
