Experiencing Laurie Baker architecture and good vegetarian lunch

Laurie Baker is a German, who introduced the Laurie baker style of low cost construction in Kerala, by incorporating the locally available raw materials and construction techniques combined well with the modern architectural concepts. Recently I visited the Sarovaram hotel on the Edappally bypass road after Vytilla junction for lunch. They serve decent vegetarian lunch for Rs.90 (approx 2 USD) per plate, and it is served on plantain leaves following the traditional Kerala style. Here are some photos from my visit to Sarovaram hotel.
