Pandavan Rock Reviews & Ratings
The Pandavan Para which is home to an ancient temple is situated at Chengannur in the Pathanamthitta district. It is located near "Noottuvar Para" named after the Kauravas depicted in the epic Mahabharata. Legend says that the Pandavas, during their exile, resided at Pandavanpara and the brothers used to offer worship at the nearby temples. The hillock has some remnants which the locals associate with the stay of Pandavas. A temple at the hilltop is dedicated to the Pandavas and has Lord Krishna as the presiding deity. There are several curious rock structures like those shaped like a frog (called 'thavalapara' in local parlance) and like the musical instrument maddalam ('maddalapara' in local parlance).
Nice Location and Good Ambiance
NYC place to spend tym for couples,there is one temple also which gives good and fresh air and feel
Beautifull place. To reach the temple we have to cover a steep narrow road. bikes are safe. From the top of the rock we get good view of nearby places. We can see nootavan para from here
Only accessible in bikes, the road leading to this place is very steep and very narrow. Gives you very good views of the surrounding places. Be sure not to go with small children as some places of the rock can be dangerous. There is a temple very close and it is recommended not to disturb the prayers. Can become very hot during the afternoon hours. Best time to go will be during sunrise.
