Velayudhan Chempakaraman Thampi (1765–1809) was the
Dalawa or Prime Minister of the Indian kingdom of Travancore
between 1802 and 1809 during the reign of His Highness
Maharajah Bala Rama Varma Kulasekhara Perumal. He is best
known for being one of the earliest individuals to rebel against
British East India Company's supremacy in India.

After Velu Thampi's death, his ancestral home was razed to
the ground and what remains now was built at a later period.
