Malampuzha

Malampuzha, a little township on the foothills of the Western Ghats, takes its name from the river Malampuzha. Nurtured by this tributary of Kerala's longest river, the Bharathappuzha, Malampuzha is a lush green town and has been a major tourist attraction for its trekking trails and the large irrigation dam. It is 10 km away from Palakkad town, North Kerala. Around the reservoir of the dam are beautiful gardens and amusement parks. Other attractions in the Malampuzha garden are the beautiful rock garden, the fishshaped aquarium, the snake park, the ropeway that takes you on an aerial tour of the park, and the gigantic Yakshi (an enchantress) sculptured by Kanai Kunhiraman, the leading sculptor of Kerala. The most interesting feature of the rock garden is that the whole place is made of unwanted and broken pieces of bangles, tiles, used plastic cans, tins and other waste materials. The garden is a master work of sculptor Padma Shri Nek Chand Saini. His rock garden in Chandigarh is world famous and attracts thousands of tourists every year.
