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.

A lesser known prehistoric site situated at Marayoor. It does not resemble a tourist spot , but a calm and quiet place next to sugarcane plantation and jaggery extraction unit. Absolutely limited parking and no facilities for tourists. Consists of a lot of capstones dotted here and there and a great view of the entire valley. Be there and be... More
