Good morning friends,
I am back again with my travel story. Kerala’s such an adorable place that you will feel like visiting again and again. We started our day with a visit to Vadakkanthara Devi temple dedicated to Goddess Kannagi who destroyed Madurai, a city in Tamil Nadu after her husband, Kovalan was wrongly accused of theft. The temple is quite big and has shrines dedicated to Lord Ayyappa, Lord Ganesha, Lord Nagaraj. The temple is quite big and the architecture is marvelous.

The day was too hot and the temples were closed. So, we took rest in our lodge and resumed our journey by 3.30 PM.
We went to visit Kava reservoir which is located behind Malampuzha Dam and is 16-kms from the City of Palakkad.
Our next visit was to Malampuzha Dam, the largest dam and reservoir in Kerala. It’s a unique combination of a masonry dam with a length of 1,849 metres and an earthen dam with a length of 220 metres making it the longest dam in the state. The dam is 355 feet high and crosses the Malampuzha River, a tributary of Bharathappuzha, Kerala’s second longest river.(Wikipedia info).
We chose to travel by a rope car with an amazing view.
Since it was getting quite dark, we didn’t get enough lighting for snaps but this is the aerial view of Malampuzhadam and the surrounding garden.
After dinner, we returned to our lodge for the day. There is another surprise for you that I will share in the evening.
Thank you so much for taking your precious time to visit my website. Hope you enjoyed reading my blogs. 😊😊
