Tourist Places in Kerala

Choolanur

The Choolanur Pea*censored* Sanctuary situated about 30 kms. away from Palakkad town, is the only one of it's kind in Kerala. Spread over approximately 500 hectares of reserve forest in Peringottukurissi Panchayat in Palakkad district
and Malesamangalam in Trichur district, this sanctuary has a population of about 200 pea*censored*s. Besides pea*censored*s, about a hundred species of other birds are also seen here.

Soon after monsoons butterflies flock to Choolanur in large numbers. And medicinal plants form part of the flora. Pea*censored*s do not like thick forests and the dry rocky terrain of Choolanur with small streams and shrub along with trees provide a natural habitat to these beautiful birds.

Kunchan Smritivanam, a 200-hectare forest area dedicated to the great Malayalam poet Kunchan Nambiar, forms part of this sanctuary. Killikkurissimangalam, the birthplace of Kunchan Nambiar is just a few kms. away from Choolanur.
