We visited this place during November. It wasn't a crowded tourist spot. Hence could spend some time on that fine evening enjoying the scenery and discussing about how our ancestors created Muniyaras. It seems to be a good place for meditation. There is a nominal entry fee for this place. The Place is called Aanakottapparai.

We visited the Dolmens briefly as part of the Spice Tree resort's 5 pm nature walk. One needs to be in shape, but the site can also be accessed less strenuously from the paved road. Unfortunately, our guide did not provide much historical or cultural detail about the site, but it was very interesting to photograph on the way to... More

May be visited once. But if you are short of time. May skip this. Distance is long - consider the factor in mind.

The Spice Tree Resort we stayed arranged for a quick visit to the Dolmens. a very intriguing site as it raises more questions with little answers. It appears to be an ancient burial site. some say these are remnants of a civilization 300BC and some put it at 3000BC. This place certainly requires more research. It is disappointing to see...

One of the left overs of ancient times and very rare to see anywhere else I think. It will create lots of questions in our mind after seeing this Muniyaras, mainly about the strength of ancient people who made these stone houses that too without any modern missionaries.
