I visited the temple after 25 yrs. much has changed. Shops available throughout the climb. Medical assistance at 6 places including oxygen support. Police placed throughout for safety. Bio toilets for both genders. It has become very tourist friendly. No restrictions on dress or materials. Plastic is banned. Water bottles not allowed at the shrine. Lodges available at shrine and in pampa. Many puplic transport busses plying between pampa and the outer car parking facility. Car parking facility at pampa need attention.

During our first visit at konni elephant centre we arrived at noon and went to view the elephants who seemed so content and healthy which was fantastic to see they are such well cared for the elephants ranged from 6 to 75 years old. We were disappointed to find we weren't able to take the elephant ride as they only let the elephants ride a couple of times a day which in fact is good news so you know the elephants aren't over worked and there care is the training centres priority. We returned the second time at 9am and had an elephant ride which was an amazing opportunity and the elephants were so beautiful !. A must see if visiting the area.
The price for a elephant ride was 600 rupies and 150 for entrance fee.

Most peaceful and very ancient temple, having lots of rituals. The temple is situated near river pamba. Most interesting fact is that the temple is the only building situated upper from the ground level. There are lots of myths behind this.

This is an excellent place for elephant lovers, to spend around two hours of time. You might want to club a trip to Konni Forest Reserve along with a trip to Thekkady or Munnar or Wagamon, or such similar places. Do certainly take the elephant ride here. And if you visit the place before 9:00am , you can watch the elephants take bath, which is awesome. One gets to spend time with the elephant kids also, and they are so cute! The place is closed on Monday's and keep that in mind. The visit is suitable for people of all ages.

The place is so beautiful that you can spend as much time here as you want. We had reached during summer in April so not much water around. But that brings out the other beauty of this place - the rocks which are normally hidden under the water. There is still a large lake-like part on the end. The route to reach is slightly broken roads in the last 100-200 meters. Otherwise, the overall route to reach the place is also very scenic. Will need to visit again during monsoon sometime.

Chandanapally literally means the abode of sandalwood trees. The church is named after St. George (also the patron saint of England), who slew the dragon snake.As a village which once had snakes of myriad shapes and venom crawling all over, its residents reposed their faith in the saint to save them from not just snakes but ghosts, demons and other dangers that lurked in the darkness.
The St. George Orthodox Church, Chandanapally is really one of the few buildings, let alone a church, to have a true and perfect blend of Christian, Islamic and Kerala styles of architecture, making it an amazing place for young architects to visit and understand the space. Completed after 14yrs in 2000, the church does have a resemblance to the St. Peter's Basilica, Rome but has its own unique identity thanks to the different styles used in it. The feast of the church (1-8 th may) attracts pilgrims from all over making it one of the important places of Christian pilgrimage in Kerala. Both the interiors and exterior of the church are exceptionally built and specially recommended to people who love architecture.
