Uramma house, a place of peace and rest

  In tribute to  the village goddess the house has been named Uramma, a quiet haven in the hustle and bustle of Anegundi ,the historical village, near Hampi, Karnataka.

“Uramma house melds the history, tranquility, earthiness and spirituality of Anegundi with the modern concept of clean lines, simplicity and functionality. It is this fusion that I try to infuse into all my projects and Uramma house embodies it perfectly ” says Shama , a heritage activist from the age of 22.

This property is  part of  the Uramma heritage homes, a rural hospitality initiative, located at Anegundi , situated along the north shore of the Tungabadra river directly across  the world heritage site of Hampi.

The vision behind this initiative is to restore old properties that are rooted in the traditional aesthetics of the region and yet provide high standards of modern comfort.

  1. Congratulations for starting this blog, Julie. It’s an important cause to support. I say this from experience. Toronto, where I live, is young compared to India but its history is taken away from it with destruction of many of its heritage buildings. The motto of the time, mainly after the WWII was : “London has it better”, and Torontonians went along with some new developments on the grave of the beautiful olds. Please ask Ms. Shama Pawar to keep on and yourself with The Curtain Call. I love to visit you again someday.

    Much love,
