Kottathavalam, an ideal picnic spot near Wagaman, is situated near Murugan hills at Kurisumala in Kottayam. A flight of steps cut in the rocks takes one to this magnificent cave, Kottathavalam. Legends say that the royal family from Madurai rested here on their way to Poonjar. The rocks within the cave, carved like chairs and couches and the figures of Madurai Meenakshi, Ayyappa, Murugan, Kannaki and weapons sculpted on them, are all worth exploring.
