Attappady, Palakkad

Location: 38 km from Mannarkkad, Palakkad district, north Kerala.

Attappady, Palakkad

Situated on the north-eastern side of the district and spread over an area of 827 sq km. Attappady is one of the largest tribal settlements in the State. The grandiloquence of this great symphony of forests, rivers and mountains is awe inspiring.

Many tribals like the Irulas and the Mudugas live here, though the density of their population is very low. The tribals worship the mountain peak "Malleeswaran' as a huge 'Siva-linga' (the Linga is the venerated image of Lord Siva) and Sivarathri at the Malleeswaran temple is the most important festival celebrated by the tribals.

The Malleeswaran peak and the river Bhavani have a tremendous influence on the lives of the tribals. The highland terrains are mostly fed by the tributaries of the river Cauvery.
A PWD Rest House, a VIP Guest House and a few private hotels offer accommodation at Agali, 38 km northeast of Mannarkkad.

Getting there:
