Mangaladevi Kannagi Temple
A large number of devotees from both Tamil Nadu and Kerala thronged the Mangaladevi Kannagi Temple on the occasion of Chithra Pournami on Friday.Located in the reserve forests of Kerala bordering TN, the access to the 2000-year-old temple is allowed only once a year during Chithra Pournami, the full moon day in the month of Chithirai.
The Thekkady Tea Trall
Thekkady is not just all about the Periyar Tiger Reserve, the Iddukki Dam and the beautiful mountains, it is so much more. I learnt this on my recent trip to Thekkady. I had an opportunity to visit a tea plantation and factory by the name of Connemara Tea Plantation. A word of thanks is due to the good people at Greenwoods, who highly recommended that I pay the plantation a visit. It was a truly refreshing experience for someone like me who was looking for something different in Thekkady besides the usual tourist attractions.
