Devikulam

Devikulam is a small hill station about 5 kilometres (3.1 mi) from Munnar in the Idukki District of the southern state of Kerala, India. It lies 1,800 metres (5,900 ft) above sea level.

According to legend, the goddess Sita Devi of the Ramayana epic bathed in the beautiful Devikulam lake waters surrounded by lush, green hills, now named Sita Devi Lake. The lake draws tourists not only because of its sacredness but also for the curative powers of its mineral waters. Most of the inhabitants in this town speak Malayalam and Tamil. Nearby, are the scenic Pallivasal Waterfalls, dense, green tea plantations, and the natural vegetation of slim red and blue and yellow gum trees.
