Review of Muniyaras Caves

Muniyaras Caves
Ranked #3 of 5 things to do in Marayur
Attraction details
Reviewed 16 February 2016

Marayoor is almost 40 km from Munnar. Famous for sandal wood forest.Muniyaras are burial chambers and many can be spotted in the huge rock on the way to Kanthalloor.Kerala tourism or archaeological department has not paid any attention for proper maintenance of these.It is high time someone has to take initiative to preserve it otherwise these ancient monuments will be lost for ever.

Muniyara or dolmens are places to visist which makes us to wonder how those giant stores were cut-transfered-placed a top of mountain without any impliment. A must see for the scenic beauty of the place and the ancientness of muniyaras. Sad part is Kerala govt collects money (Rs.10), but do not take care of the place.

We hired a auto to go to powerhouse waterfall and the auto driver suggested we see this place...without any idea what we were getting into just said yes as it was our buffer and we didnt really have any plan.

The drive to this place was very scenic as it goes thru dense cardamon plantation and other plantation estates.

After a point you need to access this place by foot only.
It passes thru a few houses, then a dense 6ft tall vegetation which can be scary as it had quite a bit of insects and huge wild spiders.

Once you reach there you get awesome view of the valley. This place isnt known to many people and I really was thankful to the auto driver for showing us such a nice place.

PS: If you are going with young kids just be aware that there is really nothing in this area for them and they can get bored easily. Also the walk thru the vegetation can be scary for them. We did go there with you kids!

Its interesting only if you have taste for it. The drive to the caves is interesting and picturesque, especially the terrace farms, sugar cane fields and orchards. The elevation is around 3500 only hence please do not expect it to be cold as Munnar.

It is a river shadow basin, and the flora and fauna is peculiar and compared to Munnar tea plantations it has a different charm. There are not many good eateries hence you may get good quality local fruits to sustain yourself.

You can view a whole city from this beautiful view point. A rocky place with miniature caves adds to beauty of this place. A perfect place to click pictures.
