Gifting Your Grandparents a Farm Stay


The best present you can give your retired folks is a trip abroad. Whatever you do for your folks, it will never be enough. Book a private trip for your parents, grandparents, in-laws, or other loved ones at Vaksana farms. Let us handle the rest. There will never be enough money to repay your parents adequately for everything they did for you. But one can at least attempt, based on personal experience.

Elders always prefer home-cooked traditional food customized to their needs.

Running a farm stay in the middle of the Vaksana farm can be physically taxing, particularly for older people. The grandmother duo love meeting people and making new young and old friends. They handle the entire kitchen at Vaksana Farms. The elderly guests love coming here to enjoy and for inspiration from the dynamic duo.

And since these women get tired, it would be incorrect to presume they possess superpowers to handle everything. On some days, they labour less and spend more time relaxing.

Let them once more exist for one another!

The Majestic Mailam Murugan

From Chennai, a short drive, is the beautiful temple of Lord Murugan. From Vaksana Farm, Stay the Mailam Murugan Temple is 23 minutes away. Our guests have told us that the accommodation next to the temple could be better. They prefer to stay at the farm when they bring their family.

The temple, perched atop a small hill, is linked to the village of Bomayapalaiyam on the Coromandel coast, which is close to Pondicherry and home to a Veera Saiva mutt.

Pommayapuram Madadhipathi constructed the hilltop shrine on a grand scale, which is admirable in maintaining it. The Mutt, which was built at the base of the hill, takes excellent care of the temple’s management while also offering conveniences to the general public that comes to visit. We have two options for ascending the slope to the temple at the top: on foot 750 metres or in a car. A 1000-year-old shrine tank is present.

The iconography of the Mailam temple bears witness to this dichotomy in several ways. Two processional chariots owned by the monastery were used during the Brahmotsavam in Panguni. They are adorned with sculpted panels showing various manifestations of Siva, including Biksatana, Gajasamharamurti, Kalantaka, etc., as well as Sarasvati Kama, Krishna, and other pantheon deities. The other historical pieces come in two different varieties. First, there are panels involving Murugan and the dog, and then there are panels that only deal with the Mutt.


Many of our guests enquire about the history and importance of the temple. The story of this kshetra starts with the brutal overthrow of Surapadma and his tearful pleading with the Lord to take him as his mount. The Sthalapurana claims that Surapadma was ultimately defeated despite his valiant efforts to battle Murugan while using the asura Mayopaya. As he was about to be killed, he begged the Lord to use him as his vessel so that he could serve him faithfully. Thirty miles separate Mailam or Mayilam from Pondicherry and Tindivanam, respectively. The temple, perched atop a small hill, is linked to the village of Bomayapalaiyam on the Coromandel coast, which is close to Pondicherry and home to a Veera Saiva mutt.

Sankhakanna’s fights against Siva and then Murugan are depicted in two panels. The representation only deviates from the plot in the first sequence that features Siva. Sankhakanna, holding the guardian’s club in his hand, reaches up to “save” the consort while Siva, sporting a beard and wearing a turban, drags her by her hair. Only Murugan grabs the guardian, who joins the issue in the second scene, which is more oblique and in which the wives of Murugan do not show. His arm is raised in a combative gesture.

We recommend this visit close to our farm is a must-go-to.

You can book your stay and visit all the attractions that are close by.

Bamboo Bathing

Vaksana Farms is an excellent place for you to get back to nature. All our visitors state that they love activities that help them detox. We loved introducing this idea of bamboo bathing. We wanted to make sure we make the guests comfortable and rejuvenated when they get back. Bamboo bathing is an innovative and eco-friendly way to cleanse and exfoliate the skin.

The natural properties of bamboo make it an ideal material for bath products, as it is antibacterial, moisture-wicking, and gentle on the skin. Let us see the benefits of bamboo bathing and why it is becoming a popular choice for skin rejuvenation and the environment.


Bamboo bathing involves using products made from bamboo to cleanse and exfoliate the skin. These products can include bamboo brushes, loofahs, and washcloths. The bristles of bamboo brushes and the fibres of loofahs are naturally stiff and abrasive, which makes them effective at removing dead skin cells and promoting blood circulation. This helps to unclog pores and leave the skin feeling soft and rejuvenated. Bamboo washcloths are also soft and gentle on the skin, making them a popular choice for those with sensitive skin.


Bamboo bathing is deeply rooted in Japanese culture and has been practised for centuries. The practice involves soaking in a wooden tub made from bamboo, known for its natural healing properties. Bamboo is believed to have anti-inflammatory properties that can help ease muscle pain and reduce stress. The tubs are usually filled with hot water infused with herbs, such as yuzu or ginger, known for their therapeutic benefits.


The natural properties of bamboo, such as its antibacterial and moisture-wicking abilities, make it an ideal material for bath products. Bamboo is naturally antibacterial, which prevents the growth of bacteria and other microorganisms on the skin. This makes it an effective way to prevent acne and other skin infections. Bamboo is also moisture-wicking, which absorbs moisture from the skin and helps keep it dry. This is recommended or those with oily or combination skin. This method helps to regulate oil production and prevent breakouts.


Bamboo bathing is an eco-friendly and sustainable alternative to traditional bath products. Bamboo is a fast-growing and renewable resource, which means that it can be harvested without causing damage to the environment. It is also biodegradable, meaning it breaks down naturally and does not contribute to pollution. Bamboo bathing is an excellent option for those who want to reduce carbon footprint and protect the planet. In addition, many bamboo bath products are packaged in recycled or biodegradable materials, reducing the environmental impact.


The unique way of bathing involves soaking in a wooden tub made from bamboo, known for its relaxing properties.

In this essay, we will explore bamboo bathing in a farm setting, where hot water is sourced from natural springs and bamboo tubs are set up outdoors. We will discuss how bamboo’s natural surroundings and relaxing properties make for a unique and rejuvenating bathing experience.


It is a great way to care for your skin while also caring for the environment. Using bamboo products, you can enjoy the natural benefits of this versatile material, such as its antibacterial and moisture-wicking properties. You can also feel good knowing you are using a sustainable and renewable resource that does not harm the planet.

Everyone you talk to will complain they do not have enough time, but how much of your day do you spend gazing at a screen? Since technology has advanced to the point where it has become a necessary part of our everyday lives, we need more free time due to our dependence on technology.

Technology is incredible and valuable; it can, at the same time, be harmful and addictive. Technology can foster communication. Additionally, it distracts us and makes us too available. Technology sometimes gives the impression that labour never ends. Physical, social, and psychological issues can result from using technology and gadgets excessively. Even though cutting out technology altogether is impossible, it is possible to occasionally take a vacation from it and do a digital detox.

A digital detox is when you abstain from using technology for a set period, including social media, email, text messaging, video games on cell phones and tablets, and TV.

Fun Farm Activities at Vaksana Farms

Due to its fascinating blend of flora and fauna, Vaksana Farms is one of the most exceptional agritourism destinations in Tamil Nadu and an incredible location for an agriculture trip in India.

The vast majority of cultivators in rural India continue to use age-old techniques for crop protection and harvesting. The farming community is encouraged to use their ancestors’ tried-and-true and creative farming techniques despite the lack of modern equipment. Farmers sprint up and down the fields to keep birds from eating the recently scattered seeds.

Although the farmers engage in these farm activities daily, tourists visiting a Farm stay for the first time may find them great fun. By taking part, you can see the fields and assist the farmers.

Through agritourism, you can admire how diligent farmers use scarce resources to create excellent crop yields year after year. So, join in on the fun at the farm and discover some interesting regional farming methods. Enjoy agricultural activities ideal for a weekend getaway.

The farmers are forced to use a sling for the obstinate crows unfazed by scarecrows or percussion. To frighten the birds away, they sling a few stones at them. You might have used a sling to force fresh mangoes to the ground in your younger years. Remember those moments or learn something new. This is also a fantastic method to teach the kids traditional Indian games. You can hit the target with the farmers’ assistance by the lesson’s conclusion!

There are countless captivating activities to engage in fields. Farm stays allow you to experience rural life firsthand and learn about the farming practices that keep the nation fed. Without the towns’ smog and heat, rural India’s farms are lovely retreats. You can participate in these enjoyable farm activities and sample the farm’s fresh, just-picked food when you stay at the farm stay. This unique weekend experience will motivate you to leave the air-conditioned concrete landscapes more frequently and re-establish your connection to the natural world.

During the week, you might be forced to put up with the humidity and smog of the cities, but the weekend is all yours to enjoy! Visit a farm like the Vaksana Farm Stay would relieve the tension. You will be greeted at this intriguing location by the mooing of the cows, the scent of fresh hay, and the greenery of the grass. These farms provide plenty of room for kids to play and will inspire a love of the great outdoors in them. It is an excellent method to encourage kids to look beyond their smartphones and video games.

Farms can offer educational opportunities and beautiful backdrops for a picnic. A lost art from India that is a vital part of our legacy can be learned: how to milk a cow. Children particularly benefit from milking and petting the animals because it allows them to put what they have learned in their studies into practice. Children will learn to recognize plants and animals more easily by exploring the farm; this type of learning cannot be provided in a classroom.

The younger population has yet to learn what living in the country is like. Farm work begins at sunrise, and crops are grown and processed using eco-friendly methods. Young children can see a traditional way of living without modern gadgets and machinery thanks to this. It is a beautiful way to get back in touch with nature and rekindle our forefathers’ reverence for the planet to spend a day outdoors, with the cool breeze clearing the lungs and the soft ground soothing the feet.
