Last year, during our summer vacations, my dad suggested us to spend couple of days at the Marthoma Retreat Centre in Perungalam, Kollam District, Kerala. The experience was too good that we decided to spend couple of days at the Dhyanatheeram this year too.
I had thought of putting up few snaps of our visit to this place last year itself, which never materialised. So, better late than never.
