Dedicated to Kirathaparvathi, Sree Kadampuzha Bhagavathy temple has no idol. Poojas are performed at a hole (about 6 cm in diameter) into which the Goddess is said to have disappeared after showing Her presence to Adi Sankaracharya. Poomoodal or offering of thecchi flowers (Ixora indica) is an important ritual here. Mutturakkal is another offering made by breaking coconuts. The temple is situated about 3 km north of Vettichira( In Between Valanchery and Kottakkal) on the highway connecting Kozhikode (Calicut) to Thrissur.

While going for a pancha karma treatment I was rather skeptical but on the moment I stepped in I attitude started changing. Though the Arya Vidya Sala situated in a vast compound comprises of several ancient buildings, the treatment section is well maintained and the service we get is more than excellent. People of different nationalities were there and but the atmosphere was rather calm and quiet. Because of the perfect house keeping and maintenance there was no smell of the ayurvedic medicines in rooms. The canteen serving vegetarian dishes was also neat and clean and the items were good. It seems the "Arya Vidya Sala" is dedicated to give the perfect traditional ayurvedic treatments at affordable rates.

Farmkamp Kumaragiri estates is a family held rubber plantation in Kerala.Visitors can enjoy the beauty of Kerala by staying in this plantation itself since travelling in Kerala during the monsoon is a terrible experience.The estates are open to visitors only during Monsoon months starting June till December.The visitors can enjoy kerala cuisine and the greenery of hills by staying in this 1500 acre farm. There is small forest stretch within the plantation and the night treks are worth experiencing. Coconuts and other spices are also grown along with coffee and cardamom on top of the hills going up to 1200 feet above msl. A visitor to the camp can use the natural pool and experience the agricultural practices and just relax in luxury of nature.A trip to UNESCO heritage labelled spot- Silent Valley is an added attraction for visiting the Farmkamp at Kumaragiri Estates. Other interesting areas for visiting around the Farmkamp is the Nilambur forest division.
I was initially told about this place by one of my close friends and when he explained it to me I thought he was exaggerating but the moment I step my foot in that holy land. I have to use this word as its pure and holy because it untouched by pollution or any of the adulterants. Its so natural and unexplored
But what made our stay more unique was the staff at Kumaragiri Farm. Mr.Vinod the Manager. Kunjapoo (The all in all ) The Chef who cooked for us and other support staffs. But this three people have really influenced all of us a lot. Specially us being from the hospitality industry its was very inspiring the level and service provided. A home away from home concept which all of us talk and promise to deliver but never happens, Kumaragiri does it all . 3 days was really short as we wanted to explore more and know the place around. Please don't commercialize it by adding 50-100 rooms or it will loose its charm.
I am lucky that Kumaragiri is a known place to me and we are planning to have our next reunion at Kumaragir again.

Very quiet place. Location just besides the river, surrounded by huge old trees give this area a mysterious look. The original temple is stone carved and has attractive wood work and paintings. Main deity is four armed Vishnu carrying Conch, the Wheel, the Lotus and the mace. Very beautify life-size idol adorned with gold.
You can take bath in nearby river. The temple kitchen also served me authentic Kerala vegetarian food. Very good place to visit near Calicut.
Note: the temple remains closed during noon hours.

This Hanuman temple is a must go place for lord hanuman worshipers. Here the main deity is Lord Rama, but near by is Hanuman temple, with hanuman in standing pose with hanuman offering an ear to Lord Rama.
The myth is that the Lord Rama is telling Hanuman the secret phrase to be told to Goddess Sita - one he meet her there at Lanka. As it is secret Lakshmana is asked to stand outside the temple.
There is a stone kept outside where kids are asked to jump over . The myth is that from the monkeys, by asking to jump over the stone they were screened.

Nedumkayam near Nilambur is not just a river; it comprises the thick rain forest with it's rich flora and fauna, the Chaliar river flowing through the forest and the vast teakwood plantations. The trekking through the forest was really awesome and few of us took a bath in the Chaliyar river which give a refeshing feel. The forest officers were really helpful in giving us information and it helped us to plan our trip.

This is best place in Malappuram for enjoy natural beauty. But there is no facility to help tourists. This most popular tourist attraction of locals, but government authorities are blind about this.
