Teak is one of the premium woods present in the world. Its much durable. Here in Nilambur you will be able to acquire great knowledge on this premium wood. As Malappuram and the state is well known for the greenery the surroundings of teak museum is also a green environment! Great place to visit!

The teak museum is a wonder house. It... More
