Ambari Mukhappu

At the extreme east end of Thekkaetheruvu Malika is the famed Ambari Mukhappu, the ornate bay window resembling an ambari or a howdah. This window opens to the Thekkaetheruvu from where the ruler may have addressed his subjects and viewed the religious processions that pass through the street below. A flight of steps adorned by two beautifully carved elephant heads lead to a raised platform. The exquisitely carved window with 5 openings is supported by rampant vyali (mythical beast) figures on the outside and crowned with a conical roof.
