It lies on the Kottayam-Kumily state highway, about 4 km from Kuttikkanam. It is located before reaching Kuttikkanam from Pathanamthitta / Erumeli route. Its a best place to relax in the misty climate after long drive. Tourists usually stop here for a tea and enjoy the falls. Its an ideal spot to stop and take a quick stretch and relax during tiring journeys.
Ammachi Kottaram Kuttikkanam
Ammachi Kottaram was known to be constructed by Travancore Maharaja, Moolam Thirunal, sometime during the 19th-century. Located in the cool tea and coffee growing highlands, it was mainly used as a royal retreat for the wife of the Maharaja. Travancore royal titles were passed matrilineally, so brother and sister ruled as the Maharaja and Maharani. The Maharaja’s wife was thus given the title of consort rather than queen. It’s believed that Maharaja Moolam Thirunal constructed Ammachi Kottaram for his wife, although the exact history behind its construction remains unclear till date.
