The Moods of Munnar - Marayoor

Nestled in the shadows of the Western Ghats, Maray​oo​r has, for over ten centuries preserved in its' soul a stone clad secret. The jungles and hillsides of Maray​oor are dotted with remnants of Dolmenoid cists called muniyaras (burial chambers) belonging to the Megalithic age.​ As one stands beside the Muniyaras, one can't help but be humbled in the presence of a creation that has withstood the test of time for over 1000 years. It has seen men come and go and stood resolute boldly facing the vagaries of the weather.​ Be it morning, afternoon, evening or night the Muniyaras have about them an aura of tranquility and spiritual peace. After all, this is where the spirits of the past sleep.
