Weekend Getaways from Thirunelly
Our first major attraction of Wayanad was “Thirunelli temple”. Set over a cliff, this temple makes one spellbound as one gets inside further. On approaching, one can see the idol situated within a dark structure. As we walk down the staircase to the waterside, the beauty says it all. A place to deposit the ashes of mortal remains, the waterside area is actually very peaceful and surrounded by green trees and rocks with water flowing over them gently. The premises of the temple is quite big, incorporating the shops with display of local and famous Kerala products like spices, wooden articles, nettipattam (a wall hanging similar to what elephants a made worn during festivals) etc. It is said that elephants often come to drink water from this place. The risk reduces, if there is parade of elephants but if there is a single elephant then one needs to be very cautious as this mighty animal might go wild and become dangerous.

Thirunelli Temple Wayanad
Thirunelli Temple was my first priority and after a bit of Youtube-ing and Google-ing, I found that there is Papanashini located just about a kilometer from the temple. I planned it as a weekend trip and the only important things in my itinerary were the Temple and Paapanashini. Rest plan was 'no plan'.More details can be found here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thirunelli_Temple To read more: The Thirunelli Ways
