I wanted a relaxing holiday and since I was based in Bangalore, I decided to go to north kerala. I wanted to relax, get a massage and see theyyam - dance of God. I booked a bus from Bangalore to mattannur where I had booked a room at the Aroma ayur heritage resort for two nights. This place is on the coorg- thalaserry highway. I arrived late in the night and walked to the resort which is just half a kilometer from the matannur bus stand. I ate a nice thali for lunch. While doing some research on theyyam, I contacted a travel agent who agreed to show me around the next day. So, I got a massage at the resort which was very relaxing. I walked around mattanur that evening and then slept early since I wanted to see theyyam the next morning.
