Ilayathu (IAST:Ilayat) (also written as Ilayath, Elayath, Elayathu) is a Hindu community in Kerala and belong to a sect of Brahmin community. The house of an Ilayath is known as Illam. The origin of this community like those of Nampoothiris and Nairs and perhaps most of the upper class communities in Kerala is shrouded in mystery. And what remains is a few legends and traditions.
