  • Why finding business in everything? Top floor of the house is now changed into a fancy type shop... The most attracted thing here is Kalam sir's immense personal collection of books. Then the awards he had received... Great place to visit...
  • Wonderful experience. Every Abdul Kalam lover should visit this place. New building with great Ambience One of the Kalam sir's statue looks like he is sitting and smiling on us.
  • While this is an astounding place of importance, i.e the place where Dr. Kalam lived, it should not be a place of attraction. It appears to be with commercial intentions, the memorial on the other hand is a place to visit and is awesome. This place is too narrow and has no proper parking or maintenance, footwear is not allowed and is not having proper visit instructions. Albeit, the people behind managing this place appears to keep it open to get people to visit the shops they own. Just a personal opinion, I might be totally wrong, but this is based on my experience during the visit with high expectations.
  • This was the house of Dr. Kalam, developed into a three story building. It has the gallery space of Dr. Kalam in the first floor. And a Gift Shop from sea shell run by his brother at second floor. This is where Dr. Kalam grew. No one is allowed to their living room at the ground floor.
  • It is a good place for the peoples who wants to know all about Dr.APJ ABDUL KALAM. It is the house which Kalam was lived.Now it is preserved as a museum which includes all things (his awards,books,used dresses,his projects etc...) related to Kalam. There is also a store of marble items near to it....
