Malampuzha Hill Station - Kerala, India

Malampuzha, located at a distance of around 10 kms from Palakkad city of Kerala, India, is one of the most attractive tourist destinations of Kerala.This small township is located at the foothills of Western Ghats. Malampuzha has a large number of natural as well as artificial amusement options.

Malampuzha might be a small hill station; however, it has a lot of attractions - really innumerable. Let me list down whatever I can...


Malampuzha Garden aka Vrindavan of Kerala has green lawns, glittering pools and fountains, and a lot of flower beds. There is reservoir (dam) near the garden which offers boating options. To add more attraction to Malampuza as a tourist spot, you can also find a fresh water aquarium, a snake park and a children's park with a toy train. You can get a glimpse of Malampuzha Garden by travelling through the Road Train. A small garden named 'Japanese Garden' gives more charm to this great tourist destination. The hanging bridge across the Malampuzha river (yes, the place got the name 'Malampuzha from this river) and the passenger ropeway are the best attractions in Malampuzha.

There is a telescopic tower available in Malampuzha similar to any other hill station in India. The thread garden is a unique attraction of Malampuzha. This is an astounding work of art created by years of hard work by many workers, using only embroidery colour threads without the aid of needles or any special devices. The Thread Garden has a good collection of beautiful life-like models of plants and flowers. The Rock garden, which is made of unwanted and broken pieces of bangles, tiles, used plastic cans, tins and other sort of waste materials, is another unique site to visit in Malampuza.

There is also an amusement park named 'Fantasy Park' in Malampuzha, which offers various kinds of joy rides like any other amusements parks in India.

The beautiful and unique sculpture of Yakshi is one of the highlights and landmarks of this small, but beautiful tourist attraction named Malampuzha.

Happy travelling.
