Located in Southern India, Kerala, Munnar both in the language Tamil and Malayalam symbolizes three rivers. Three mountain river streams merge at this place.

Places to see:

They also sell common Ayurveda plants which are very valuable in maintaining a healthy soul and body.

Look for TATA factory outlet for Tea, and other shops in Munnar for fresh and natural spices.
