Kannimara translated in tamil is 'virgin"'I was told a story by the local tour guide on how the oldest Kannimara aParmbikulam was to be felled down by the British and how it shed blood as tears, That fasinated me. The sheer girth and height of one of the oldest Kannimara was awsome

I liked the grandness of this tree. this tree is witness to the centuries of activities of civilizations on this planet earth. It stands like a symbol of immortality upon this earth. It defies death's dictum. A symbol of generosity, patience, and immortal growth.

Hats off to the officials who still manage both the extremes- promote tourism as well as conserve nature. The largest teak tree. it is so massive

This huge tree as the board says is a very old tree and we had not seen a teak tree as big as this. We were taken here as part of the organised safari by the forest dept in their bus.

A massive tree - looks like an aged grandfather! The teak is inside the forest and the place is frequented by wild animals. You need to seek the guidance of the forest department staff and follow a rough beaten track.
