Thrissur: A documentary on Anavary, a village on the hills near the Peechi dam on the fringes of Thrissur district, is likely to gather more attention to the place noted for its scenic beauty. Professional photographer Pushpakaran Madhavan has made the film.
Kuthiran road tunnels, Uppungapara, Vettukunnu and the Kerala Forest Research Centre at Kuthiran as well as the Mambara waterfalls are at Anavary village. The under-construction twin tunnels at Kuthiran will be South India's first-ever tunnel for road transport. The tunnels connect Palakkad and Thrissur district on the National Highway 544.
