MADAYIPPARA.... mindblowing sceneries....!

Legends and history permeate Madayippara, an extended laterite hillock not far from Ezhimala that face the sea. Located on the northern side of Kerala’s (India) Kannur district, this hillock is a synonym of peace and tranquility and it offers a soothing effect to the mind of any visitor. For an outsider, this Plateau with its shrines and remnants of historical ruins still gives off a sense of exotic feel.

Reaching there: The nearest railway station is Payyangady railway station. From there one will get buses to madayippara. after reaching madayippara one can see a Government Guest house on the top of the hillock. Herman Gundert had prepared his famous Malayalam dictionary by staying inside this ancient structure.
The vast expanses of the hillock start just behind the guest house. A panoramic view of Ezhimala that extending to the sea is also available from there. The sea is providing a rich background.

There is a gigantic pond in the close proximity of Madayikkavu. No cruel summer can dry up this pond. In the rich canvas of Madayippara, not only the hillock but also the sky, sea and this pond are providing new aesthetic sensibilities. The pond was calm and its placid waters were crystal clear.There is a small `kavu’ on the other side of the pond.There were a number of plants and flowers on the vicinity of the pond.

At the western side of the madayippara, there is a temple known as Vadukunta temple. Here one can see a butterfly sanctuary (not an official santuary, but it is just like that because of the wide varity of the buttreflies).

One can see as many as 117 varieties of butterfly there. More than double of butterfly varieties available in the parks of Britain and Germany.(i cannot explain the real beauty of butterflies there, only with some words...). A one hour walk is needed to reach there. But this rocky terrain would not make you tired whether it is rain or shine. The vibrant scenes would dilute the pains of body.
I cannot explain the real picture of madayippra, only with some words. It is really a superb place to see....

Keep these words in mind (heard from travellers: "The visuals here are reflective of shots in Mani Ratnam films.")
