Ayyampara Hills in Kottayam

Located on Erattupetta Muttom Road, the Ayyampara hills is a beautiful picnic spot in Kottayam.

According to legends, the five Pandava brothers - epic heroes of the Mahabharatha - stayed near this rock, 2000 ft. above sea level and spread over 20 acres, during their exile. The name of the rock is said to be a modified version of the original term Anchupara (five rocks). However, some say that the name owes its origin to the Ayyappa Temple here. This temple has four pillars which support a flat piece of rock that forms the roof. On one side of the rock is a cave that can accommodate over 15 people.

The sunset vies from Ayyampara hill is beautiful. Above all, the cool mountain breeze does wonders to your mind and body.
