Pattara Chundan
The magnificent Pattara Chundan (snake boat) owned by the Hospitality arm of the Pattara group is a site to behold in itself. With a length of over 120ft and a capacity to carry 102 people, the pattara chundan is one of the only two Snake Boats that is privately owned in the world.
The 'Pattara Chundan's construction was supervised by Kozhimukku Gopalakrishan Ashary, one of the noted makers of snakeboats in Kerala and has been shaped from a 1,300 cubic ft-long wood using traditional constructional methods known by only a handful of families in Kerala. The Pattara Chundan was built in the memory of Mr. Pattara's parents, the late Pattara Varkey Thomas and Thressiama Joseph and is one of the most prized possessions of the group.
