About Devikulam

Located in the Idukki district of the south Indian state of Kerala, Devikulam is a very small yet popular hill station located at a distance of only 5 KM from the popular tourist attraction place Munnar.

The name Devikulam literally is comprised of two words: “Devi” which means “Goddess” and “Kulam” which means “Pond.” The place stands at a height of around 1,800 meters above sea level.

The languages spoken in this region are mainly Malayalam—which is the official language of the state of Kerala and English. Some people also speak the Tamil language here. According to the statistics of the year 2010, the remote place has a very small strength of residents amounting to a figure as small as 350 people.

If the legend is to be considered, then Devikulam has a lot of historical significance in Indian culture other than just being a popular tourist attraction place. It is believed that popular Hindu deity Goddess Sita, who was Lord Rama’s wife, bathed in the serene waters of the lake that is situated here.

References for the same can be found in the most popular epic and holy book of Hindus in India: the Ramayana. The lake as on today is popularly known as the Sita Devi Lake.

The lake is not just famous for its association with Hindu mythology but also for the very fact that its mineral waters possess healing properties. The lake waters are beautifully surrounded by the tall mountains that showcase lush green vegetation in the soothing ambiance.

Devikulam is also popular for its variety of red and yellow gum trees and natural vegetation. Other than that, one can surely enjoy the wondrous green tea plantations in this region, alongside the very popular and wonderful Pallivasal Waterfalls, which is considered to be one of the best sight-seeing spots in this area.
