Vandanmedu offers a unique opportunity to learn the commercial processing of one of the most expensive spices in the world; cardamom. Tourists can also buy and relish high-quality cardamom at a reasonable price. Those who enjoy the aroma of the spice will find it difficult to get out of the place as the incessant cool breeze is impregnated with it. The busy tourist spot in Thekkady also showcases some old buildings constructed around the early 20th century. The post office, known locally as the Anchal office is one of the kind. It is considered as one of the first post offices established by the British during their rule of India.
