Located just 3 miles south of Wiscasset Village on the corner of Route One and Old Bath Road in Wiscasset, Maine Heritage Village offers something for everyone! We have a 3,000 square foot Country Store that houses shopping opportunities for every taste, the wondefully unique Lighthouse Diner that offers some of the best seafood and downeast dining around, a historical exhibit area that feeds the mind as well as the soul and offers a visitor center with free computer use.
The Heritage Village is dotted with a few small-size shrines of deities mostly belonging to the past ages. Harihara Mandir: The notable among them is Harihara Mandir which was originally situated in Kodagu. Vishnu Mandir: This elegant temple structure has been recreated in the Heritage Village on the model of an old temple situated near Katapadi in Udupi district. Khadga Rama Shrine: This is a very simple structure with no walls, but standing on a pedestal that supports four wooden columns and the overhead roof. Bhavya Durgi Shrine: This shrine represents the age-old architectural style of Udupi district with double roofs laid one over the other. THIS house was constructed by a local Shivalli Brahmin priest by the name of Ayyappa Narayana, who had migrated to Kerala and prospered. For generations, the Kunjur Chowkimane was the focal point of the entire village of Kunjur. Puttama Bai lived in Chowkimane for over 25 years and in time found it difficult to maintain and upkeep the house.
Three families -- all cousins -- headed by Shridhar Rao, Srinivasa Murthi and Madhav Rao legally owned the Chowkimane. When the Hasta Shilpa Trust approached the three cousins with a request to help it acquire the decaying structure of Kunjur Chowkimane for its transplantation in Heritage Village, they came forward to donate it to the Trust. The Kunjur Chowkimane was built in the architectural style of Kerala based on the fifteenth century treatise Manushalaya Chandrika. The plan of the structure follows a mandala or a grid aligned to the cardinal directions wherein the center of the mandala is left open or not built up, to coincide with the central courtyard. The courtyard lined with dressed granite stone-edging, has circular wood-turned pillars having a gentle taper that support the most striking assembly, which characterizes the highly evolved wooden joinery, so typical of Kerala architecture. The corridor around this court provides access to the various wings through door openings, the southern wing being directly open to the court.
Partitions made of timber planks with adequate expansion joints serve as the wall for the granary situated in the central portion and the master bedroom situated in the south-western portion of the southern wing.
Two rooms created by wooden partition on either side of the northern wing, punctuated by; a similar louver window with a long seat complete the arrangement of spaces in this hall.


Step back in time at the Village and understand why here in Maine we say, “the way life should be”.
Our very own Maine Village Builders, who not only created this place but have built custom homes and villages across the USA, are located on the premises as well. It was built in the traditional architectural style of Kerala with stepped wooden ceilings having figures of deities in bold relief, ornate pillars with corner sculptures and panels and richly carved door. It has all the distinctive characteristics of traditional temple architecture of this coastal region.
The shrine has a centuries-old wooden figure supposedly of Khadga Rama that was originally located in the precincts of Banashankari temple of Ulloor Village in Kundapura Taluk. The shrine has a 800-year-old Bhavya Durgi originally located in the precincts of Banashankari temple of Ullor village.
Ayyappa Narayana, who wanted a house for his growing family, got the plan of a large-size house ready while in Kerala, and also got all the required wooden structural components of this house carved by skilled artisans of Kerala.
The Chowkimane and its residents maintained the tradition of close bonding with the village folk and became an important part and parcel of that village. After 1958, an ageing Puttama Bai, belonging to Ayyappa Narayana's third generation, lived alone except for intermittent visits by her other children and their families.
As a result, a good portion of the house got severely damaged, particularly during monsoons. But since they lived away from the ancestral house, they lost interest in restoring and maintaining the structure of this house. The entire process of documentation, dismantling, transportation, restoration and reconstruction of the Chowkimane was funded by the Norwegian Embassy, New Delhi. The basic house module is nalukettu (nalu-four, Kettu-wings) four blocks or wings of different widths in a descending order, the largest being the southern, and then the western followed by the northern and the eastern wing being the least. The assembly sits on successive beams, corniced and carved with intricate motifs, which rests on these courtyard-pillars. The eastern wing comprises the kitchen at the northern extremity, with the dining hall in the middle and a small wood-partitioned shrine room used for daily worship, facing west and opening out into the court. The south-western corner of the ground floor has a closed room, which serves as the cradle room.
The north-western room has a fixed masonry bed and was used to isolate women undergoing their monthly cycles, considered impure in the orthodox set-up.
There is so much to enjoy, so follow the links above to find out more of what there is to do, see, and eat!


This four-century-old shrine was in ruins in its original location, and the Trust acquired it and rehabilitated it in its Heritage Village.
Advancing age and ill-health forced Puttama Bai -- now in her mid-eighties -- to leave the house to live with her daughter in Bangalore. This allows not only light to flow into the central core, but rain as well, and the water is collected and drained off through an outlet provided at the floor level. This railing-louver window admits light and air to the first floor, diffused and tampered within the hall. Orthodox customs dictated the need for a separate kitchen to cook offerings for the deity and is located in the south eastern corner, accessed by a narrow corridor behind the shrine room.
The space along the western wing is kept open and leads to a wooden staircase to access the first floor.
Just outside the south-western room, on the western wall a large window punctuated by small pigeon -hole openings covered by a wooden plank for the shutter, doubles up as a seating when opened.
The north-eastern and the south- eastern corner room-floor, lay bare with only the framework of its beams, facilitated smoke to rise up from the kitchen below and fumigate various food items stored in this room, preventing the attack of insects all round the year. Situated on two acres, there is plenty of room to spend an hour or a day enjoying this one of a kind experience! Major festivities like Janmashtami, Ganesh Chathurti, Navaratrotsava used to be held here with the participation of family members, relatives and natives of the village. The pillared southern portion has a raised platform higher than the rest of the floor by about 18 inches and serves as an interactive space for the members of the family.
On reaching the first floor, the whole space expands into a large hall with a low wooden ceiling and has wood-partitioned rooms only in the corners and the entire southern wing. An intricately carved wooden ceiling running to the entire width of the louver window adds further beauty.
Simple geometric windows, placed 6 inches above the floor level , bring in shafts of light and ventilation to this raised platform. Sliding louver windows on the eastern and western walls combined with the central core louver window, create the effect of the light and shadow on the floor and the low wooden ceiling. This window provided breath-taking view of the vast paddy fields bordered by coconut gardens.
