And the final result was the emergence of one hall which
has neither equals nor sanctity anywhere in Kerala. Extremely satisfied with his
extra-ordinary skill, the Divan desiring to test his skills asked him to tell
.the number of bricks needed for the outer wall, on condition that incorrect
estimation would land him in trouble. Would the divinely inspired master
sculptor errs Never! Giving the exact number, he went ahead with construction.
Strangely enough two bricks were found wanting.
The divine architect boldly
replied when questioned that the error had crept in due to either wrong counting
by the workers or some foul game wantonly played by someone. The Diwan confessed
that it was under his direction that two bricks were concealed. Wonder-struct
Diwan suitably rewarded him. Such is the awe-some background of this Kuttambalam,
now elevating the visitors with its exterior, architectural adornments, interior
decoration and ulterior divinity.
