Kudakkallu, Thrissur

Kudakallu provides a unique experience of history, and quiet time with the family. Kudakkallu, literally meaning umbrella rocks, is a collection of rocks shaped as overgrown mushrooms or stunted umbrellas. The rocks date back to 4000 years, and it is believed that each of these umbrella-shaped rocks were installed as a memoir over the grave of the wealthy who were buried here.

It is a practice that has long ceased to be, but the place still maintains the calm of a graveyard. Before you let it turn you off, consider the exciting study in geology Kudakkallu offers with the variety of shapes and sizes of the rocks. It is situated about 25 km from Thrissur and is well-connected to it through the road.
