Mangala Devi temple

Back To Thekkady

Deep in the forest of Periyar National Park rests an unlikely surprise for the tourists, a historic temple of Mangala Devi Kannagi. Believed to be erected by the ancient Tamilakam king Cheran Chenguttuvan nearly 2000 years before in remembrance of the legendary character Kannagi, the temple is an amusing monument for history lovers.

The trek to this nearest sightseeing spot of Thekkady, which is at a height of 1337 meters above mean sea level, and the spectacular view from the high point will surely etch an unforgettable memory.
