Description

Devikulam is a scenic location near Munnar town where you can have amazing sights of nature.  The hill station of Devikulam derives its name from the Devikulam Lake in the vicinity. Devikulam means lake (kulam) of the Goddess (Devi). Devikulam is a small hill station situated lo at an altitude of about 1000 meters from sea level and at a distance of 8 km south west of Munnar in the Idukki District of the southern state of Kerala, down the Munnar-Kumily Highway, SH 19. This idyllic hill station of Devikulam with its breath-taking locales, velvet lawns and the cool fresh air is famous for its softly gushing waterfalls that cascade from steep heights and the unique flora and fauna.  Legend has it that Goddess Sita, consort of Lord Rama (an incarnation of the Hindu God Vishnu) would bathe in the sparkling waters of this tranquil lake during their stay in the nearby forests. Hence the name Devikulam. There is also a small temple here dedicated to the goddess.

The Devikulam Lake also known as the Sita Devi Lake. Sita Devi lake in Devikulam hill station, as it is now known, is a definite must for spiritual & physical rejuvenation. Not far away from the lake is the spectacular Pallivasal Waterfalls that is frequented by picnickers.

You can also spot the highly endangered species of the Grizzled Giant Squirrel and the Star Tortoise here. Besides these natural sceneries, one can also visit the ruins of Mangalam Devi temple nearby with its magnificent views. The Marayur sandal forest around the hill station is an added attraction too. Close to the forest are the ancient Sanyasi Caves, a popular tourist destination near Devikulam. Devikulam hill station also offers an opportunity for mountaineering, hill climbing, and nature trekking, not to mention of it being a popular picnic spot. There are several tea plantations in and around Devikulam that add to the charm of the hill resort.
