Neyyar: The land where ghee flows

 alt=

There are a number of reasons to visit Neyyar - from the abundant wildlife that include lions, elephants, tigers, leopards, bears, wild buffaloes, and birds to the huge diversity of flora - trees, creepers, rarest of the rare orchids, and more. Although Anamudi is the highest peak in the Sahyadris, it is Agasthyakoodam that is known as the evergreen spot in this mountain range. The peak is known for its steep slopes which can be accessed only with great difficulty. Neyyar is born as small, nondescript mountain streams in various parts of Agasthyakoodam. By the time it reaches Kombai settlement colony, it takes the form of a small stream. As Neyyar flows downhill, slowly it gains momentum and strength, aided by the many such rivulets that join it on the journey down. There are two legends about Neyyar's origin, both related to Agasthya rishi, one of the seven sages. It is said that the ghee, or clarified butter, used for the puja at Agasthya's ashram used to flow downhill. This made it difficult for people downhill to get water. Agasthya understood this problem and changed the ghee to water. Another legend is that the sage had instructed people to use the ghee flowing from his ashram only for their daily needs, and always to collect only the quantity needed for the day. A local feudal lord once questioned this and stored the ghee needed for a week. The sage got angry at this and turned all the ghee to water. Whether it was ghee or water that flowed, locals say the river originates somewhere near Agasthya ashram. 'There is no other mention of a river where ghee flowed. It is said in the Puranas that Vishnu's first avatar, the fish, manifested in a river where ghee flowed. If that is indeed the case, that took place in Neyyar,' says C.V.Suresh, a teacher who authored the book 'Cultural History of Neyyatinkara.' Neyyar is the southernmost river in Kerala; it originates from Agasthyakoodam and joins the Arabian sea at Poovar. As you skip along the little waves of this river, you can see blue, mist-covered peaks on the horizon. Kalimala, Kalippara, Klamala, Kondakettimala ... all of them have their own tales to tell. There is a temple on top of Kalimala, and another on Kalippara (Lokambika temple). These are devi temples but the main pujas are held on Sivaratri. It is mostly the Kani tribals from the surrounding areas that come for these pujas. On Sivaratri day, entire villages make their way to these forest temples. The festivities last till the morning. The temple ponds on both the peaks are a wonder - they don't dry up even in peak summer, and the water is crystal clear. On one of these peaks is also the famous southern Kurissumala pilgrimage centre. Every year, thousands walk up these hills in memory of the sacrifices of Jesus Christ. Neyyar dam is among the most beautiful gardens in Kerala. Rare orchids add to the coruscating kaleidoscope of colours here. It also has artificial waterfalls, an aquarium with a large collection of fishes, parks, and a boat service run by the state forest department. The famous Lion safari Park here is on a small peninsula jutting into the Neyyar reservoir. You can reach the park through land or take a boat to there. The area is fenced in with barbed wire, and the lions roam free inside. Visitors are taken inside the park in fully covered vehicles. The lions sometimes can be seen on the road itself, or close by. 'The park here is more beautiful than any other lion safari park in the world,' says Sakkeer, a businessman from Kozhikode who travels around the globe. 'But even we Malayalis don't know about it.' The deer park, also on a small peninsula, is another attraction. There are hundreds of deer here, from various species. It is a sight to see them graze near the fences. 'The number of visitors to Neyyar dam is increasing by the day,' says forest ranger Baiju Krishna. 'But more North Indians come here than Keralites.' The crocodiles in Neyyar once hogged the headlines for all the wrong reasons - they used to spring on unsuspecting local people who used to come to the reservoir for bathing and washing clothes. Several people have lost their lives to these attacks and several more have been maimed. Why do these crocodiles harbour an enduring hatred for humans? The reasons are still unclear. Locals used to say it could be because of hunters targeting baby crocodiles, but there has been no evidence to substantiate it. Attempts were made to relocate the crocodiles when their attacks began to increase; that led to the setting up of the crocodile park here, which further led to the establishment of the Steven Irvin Crocodile Research and Rehabilitation Centre. Neyyar's beauty is best appreciated from a height. There are two watchtowers here; both offer great views, including the of blue-water lake that spreads across kilometers. The natural beauty at Neyyar's foothills is probably unrivalled in the world. Fresh water that flows down, carrying with it the essence and fragrance of various rare medicinal herbs from the jungles, boating facilities, trekking packages – Neyyar's wild beauty beckons travellers. You can trek to Meenmutti waterfalls too. It is a two-day trek. The halt at the end of the first day is at Kombai settlement colony; here Neyyar flows like a little child. Further downstream, she is joined by her tributaries Kallar, Valliyar and Mullayar, and transforms herself into a roaring, mighty river. The dam across Neyyar was built 55 years back to bring water to the farmlands in Neyyatinkara taluk and Vilavankode taluk in Kanyakumari, which was once part of Kerala. The work on the dam started in 1951 and it was commissioned in 1959. The cost then was Rs 4 crore, which is the cost of building a small bridge today, even adjusted to inflation. Two canals, one for Kanyakumari and one for Neyyatinkara, distribute water from the reservoir to farms downstream. The one to Tamil Nadu is now closed. Kappukadu elephant sanctuary is a little away from Neyyar dam and can be reached either by land or by taking a boat. Wild elephants found injured in the forest are brought to this sanctuary for treatment. There are nearly 10 such elephants in the sanctuary that have been domesticated this way. Among the elephants that take travellers for safari is Jayashree, who is famous for her discipline and for ensuring the safety of travellers. At Kappukadu, you get a ringside view of elephants going about their life - taking baths and being fed. Cottages here offer an opportunity to live close to nature. A special raft to cross the river is also available. North Indian and foreign travellers love this place. An idol of Agasthya is installed on the tallest peak on these ranges. At the top of the peak you can find dwarf trees and shrubs; Puranas describe the sage as short in height too. 'Neyyar is not only a river but also a civilization. It is life-giving water, magic and tantra, work and culture. It is Dravidian, and is like nourishing water and light for writers like me,' says famous writer Prof. V. Venugopan Nair. His stories abound in characters from around the river. Still, despite it being the life-giving river of Thiruvithancore, Neyyar was never written or sang about; films were not made around it. It is a mystery why Neyyar did not percolate into Kerala's culture scene in the way Bharathapuzha, further north, did. Is it because of Agasthya's curse, or is it because she flows mostly through thick jungles that throw a thick veil of secrecy over her? Perhaps, only the river knows. But she just keeps flowing, displaying no intent to reveal her secret to anyone. (In special arrangement with Vanitha)

Neyyar Wildlife Sanctuary

Rising to 1868m at Agasthya Peak and surrounding an idyllic lake created by the 1964 Neyyar Dam, 30km east of Trivandrum, this 128-sq-km sanctuary has a fertile shoreline forest home to gaurs, sambar deer, sloth, elephants, lion-tailed macaques and the occasional tiger. Access is via 'boat safari' trips taking in its Lion Safari Park (a fenced forest enclosure), Crocodile Rehabilitation Centre (named for Australian legend Steve Irwin) and Deer Rehabilitation Centre.

It's also possible to take an 8km boat ride followed by a 6km hike inside the park to a waterfall (Indian/foreigner ₹920/1310; minimum five people), with the option of staying overnight (₹1050/1550) in basic park accommodation; book a day or two ahead. The bookings and reception office is on the west side of the dam and well signposted.

Government considers setting up mini safari park in Neyyar

The former Lion Safari Park at Neyyar Dam.(File pic)

THIRUVANANTHAPURAM:  The state government is actively mulling a proposal to convert the now-defunct Neyyar wildlife park into a mini safari park. Forest Minister A K Saseendran informed the Assembly on Friday that the government will explore the possibility of approaching the Central Zoo Authority, seeking permission for the same. 

Responding to a submission from MLA C K Hareendran, the minister informed the House that the park lost its status as a lion safari park in 2021 owing to a lack of area. He said it was in December 2021 that the Central Zoo Authority issued an order putting an end to the functioning of Neyyar wildlife park. As per the norms, an area of 20 ha is required for the park to be operational. Now, it has only 4 ha of land. However, as the park is located on an island in the Neyyar reservoir, increasing the area wouldn’t be practical. 

neyyar lion safari park photos

The forest department has a favourable stance towards reinstalling the park’s status as a lion safari park. Considering the severe impact on the tourism sector and the huge revenue loss after the park lost its status, an appeal was filed before the Central Zoo Authority. The forest department sent the Thiruvananthapuram wildlife warden, who directly appeared for a hearing by the authority. However, the authority informed that its order will not be revised. 

“Currently there are restrictions for construction activities at national parks and wildlife sanctuaries. A case in this regard has been pending before the Supreme Court. On February 8, the court issued an order in this regard. Therefore, further activities can be carried out only as per the apex court’s final order,” the minister said.

Raising the issue through a submission, Hareendran pointed out that the revenue from the park has drastically come down. The condition of the daily wage labourers is pathetic, he mentioned. Hareendran further suggested that more land should be acquired to expand the lion safari park. “The government should take steps to bring in two lions from Gir National Park to convert the park into a mini safari park,” he demanded.

Uncertainty looms

Park lost its status as a lion safari park in 2021 owing to a lack of area As per the norms, an area of 20 ha is required for the park to be operational. Now, it has only 4 ha of land.  As it is located on an island in the Neyyar reservoir, increasing the area wouldn’t be practical

TOP-11 Moscow Parks to Visit

I have chosen the best 11 Moscow parks to visit and spend a beautiful time for you. Do not miss and choose one that you like the most – cycling, festivals, flowers, panoramic views and many other things are waiting for you!

Gorky Park (The Central Park of Culture and Leisure) – The main one of the Moscow Parks

In my opinion this park could be called the main park of the city. Why? Because of its huge territory, the central location and the amount of people visiting the park daily.  It was founded in 1928 and in 2011 it was totally reconstructed. Now it pleases visitors with modern objects and soft green lawns.

  • Oktybrskaya or Park Kultuty metro station, Krimsky Val, 9

The Gorky park is a the right choice for everyone! The youth will like a free WiFi, bicycles, skateboards and other rentals; the couples will enjoy spending time near the river, watching a sunset; parents will appreciate colorful playgrounds and a room for mother and child. Everyone can find something for themselves: from yoga classes  to watching movies in a cozy summer cinema, from dance classes to volleyball playground. Gorky Park is also the venue for all kinds of exhibitions, festivals, events for children and adults. During the winter there is one of the biggest skating rinks in the park.

Museon Art Park – A Second Gorky they say

“Museon” is located on the opposite side of Krimsky Val street. And right now some people believe that Gorky and Museon together is a one space sharing the same beauty.

  • Oktybrskaya or Park Kultuty metro station, Krimsky Val, 2

The Park of Arts was named this way because there is the largest composition of open-air sculptures in Russia. In its territory there are already more than 1000 unique exhibits: from monuments of the socialist realism era to various kinds of contemporary art. But this is not all the attractions of the park. In recent years, “Museon” has become an important cultural site of the city. The park regularly hold many different concerts, festivals, educational projects in the field of art and design. There is a Central House of the Artist, a comfortable summer cinema and other attractions on territory. Be sure to stroll pedestrian Crimean embankment, which looks like a modern park.

Neskuchny Garden – True Russian Nature is Here

Neskuchny garden is located on the right bank of the Moscow River. Today it is also seen as a part of the Gorky Park. This landscape park is one of the oldest in the city and is protected by the state. Its name was received from the Neskuchnoye Estate of  Prince Trubetskoi which is still located in the park.

  • Leninsky Prospekt metro station, Leninsky Prospect, 30

This park is famous mostly for its location close to the Gorky park. It is a quite place with true nature, lots of trees and squirrels and also ancient architecture. As in every park, there are sports and playgrounds, cafes and even a football field.

Zaryadye Park – 5 Steps Away From The Red Square

The area of this brand new park was opened only in September 2017 and located in the very heart of Moscow – right near the Red Square.

  • Open from 10AM to 10PM
  • Teatralnaya, Okhotnyi ryad, Ploschad Revolutsii

The park has 4 zones, each of them represent different parts of Russian landscapes. Above the river there is a floating bridge from where you get to see one of the best panoramic views on Moscow. Other attractions of the park are 5D cinema where you can take a flight above Moscow, few cafes and restaurants, pretty lakes with fishes and old preserved churches. In addition there is still being built a  philharmonic hall, covered with a huge dome and an Ice cage where the temperature will always stay below zero degrees.

When you are on the Red Square do not miss it!

All-Russia Exhibition Center (VDNKh) – The Soviet Style Moscow Park

Park VDNKh – one of the most famous parks in Moscow. This park is one of the sights of the city as it hasn’t changed much since the Soviet era.

  • VDNKh metro station, Prospect Mira, 119

The symbol of VDNKh is a fountain with 16 women symbolizing the friendship of the nations of the USSR. Around this fountain there are all the pavilions representing 16 republics. Now inside the pavilions you find various shops, cafes and exhibitions. If you go deep inside the park you will find a rocket Vostok and and an aircraft. What is funny the inside of the aircraft there is actually a photo exhibition. Near the northern entrance you there is a famous sculpture “Worker and Kolkhoz Woman”. It is extremely famous among Russians as all the movies by Mosfilm corporation used to start with the picture of this statue. But if you go further inside the park you will reach a very calm area. A lake is there, forest and birds singing. Since the park occupies a large area I suggest you to rent a bicycle.

Sokolniki Park – A Place For A Hunt Or For Leisure?

The park got its name because of the royal falconry, which took place there in the past when there was a dense forest. (Sokol means a falcon.) In 2011 it was significantly transformed: updated lawns, landscaped ponds and picnic areas, restored summer cinema and theater, a large rose garden, sports grounds, bicycle paths and other things.

  • Sokolniki metro station, Sokolnichesky Val, 1, p. 1

From the main entrance along the alley you can walk to the Sokolniki circle, where 8 alleys form 9 sectors, in each of them you will find trees of the same breed.  The park is famous for its rosary, as well as flower decoration. On the territory of the park there are concert halls, a library, amusement zone, dances zone and many many other attractions. In winter the park has a skating rink (a free of charge one) and ski runs. During the warm season you can rent a bicycle.

Tsaritsino Park – A Different World Inside Moscow

Here you can walk for hours, admiring the most beautiful nature and magnificent architecture.

  • Open from 6AM to 12AM
  • Tsaritsyno metro station, Dolsky, 1

The most amazing part of the park is the lake with a light and musical fountain. Every evening the fountain starts the show. Lights and music combined make you feel like you are not in Moscow but in a fairy tale. The park is also well equipped for sports lovers and healthy lifestyle. There are volleyball and basketball courts, a tennis court, sports facilities for acrobatics, bodybuilding equipment.

What I personally like about this park is the atmosphere. This place is actually far from the city center but I love going there anyway. Whenever I go there I feel like I left Moscow with all its hectic lifestyle. It is the place where I relax, enjoy myself or a company of my friends and feel kind of different. By the way totally suggested for a date!

Kolomenskoye Park – Combination Of Reserve and Architecture

The Kolomenskoye park is actually a Museum-Reserve. It is a former residence of Russian tsars and one of the most scenic places in Moscow.

  • May to September – open from 8AM to 12AM, October to April – from 8AM to 9PM
  • Kolomenskoye metro station, Andropov Ave, 39

 Alike with Tsaritsino park Kolomenskoye park has its own special atmosphere with all the architecture, trees, ponds and even a river bank. The park regularly hosts various folk festivals and different fairs. In summer time you can play with kites or rent a bicycle and ride around the huge area of the park.

I love the view that you get on the city from one of the hills near the river. I love the apple trees alleys and the beautiful churches. It is also a bit far from the city center but yet worth going there. One of my best friends even celebrated her wedding there.

Aptekarsky Garden or Botanical garden of the Moscow State University – The Best Botanical Garden in The World

Aptekar in Russian language means a pharmacist so basically it is a pharmacist’s garden. It was founded in 1706 by Peter The Great for growing medicinal plants for the royal family. But later they moved it from under the walls of the Kremlin to the current location.

  • Open from 10AM to 8PM
  • Prospect Mira metro station, Prospekt Mira, 26

In the botanical garden there are no attractions and noisy crowds of tourists. The area of the garden is not as big as any other park in Moscow. And the entrance is not free. But this exactly what makes this park one of the most comfortable in the city. In the Aptekarsky garden they grow thousands of different plants, flowers and trees. Some of the trees are more than 300 years old. They held different festivals there: flowers festivals, sand and ice sculptures expositions.

For me it is one of the most beautiful parks not only in Moscow but in the world. I have never seen so many different flowers and plants anywhere else. And trust me I am a real park lover. And what is more the staff really takes care about every single tree or plant there, some of the trees have names and stories. I love it there and I think the price is really worth what you get.

Victory Park – A Park That Makes Us Remember The War

The park is located on the Poklonnaya Hill and it has one of the world’s largest memorial complexes dedicated to the World War II. The park was opened for the 50th anniversary of the Victory on May 9, 1995. It is also one of the main venues in the city for holding a variety of mass events.

  • Park Pobedy metro station, Brothers Fonchenko, 7

On the main avenue of the park there are with 1418 fountains – exactly as long as the war lasted. Fountains make five water terraces, symbolizing five years of military operations. And in the center of the park there is the Museum of the Great Patriotic War. If you are interested in the history of the war do not miss it. The Poklonnaya Hill is a part of the park and from the hill you get one of the best views on the city of Moscow. And I could say this is the best place for watching the fireworks during the mass celebrations. But be aware it gets too crowded then. As in most of the other big parks you can rent a bicycle or rollers there.

Izmailovsky Park – A Mix of a Big Forest and Attractions

Izmaylovsky Park occupies a huge green territory, making up a large part of the Izmailovo district. The park consists of two parts: Izmaylovsky Park of Culture and Rest and the forest park of Izmailovo. First part is full of attractions and restaurants while the second one is like a real forest with pine trees, birch groves, beautiful clearings and ponds.

  • Izmaylovskaya, Shosse Entuziastov or Partizanskaya metro stations, Izmaylovsky Park

It is easy to spend there a whole day. A large landscaped area and a lot of various entertainments for children and adults will help you not to get bored. An observation wheel, a boat station, children’s playgrounds, a dance floor, sports grounds, a skate park – all this is only a small part of the possible leisure activities. In the park there are bike paths and a rental services.

I don’t go there often to be honest. But the park is very very close whenever to a souvenir market on Partizanskaya metro station. And whenever the weather is nice and I have enough of free time I stroll through the alleys of the park and enjoy the nature. So if you are going to the souvenir market too and you have enough free time then do go to the park too.
