Neelakurinji (Kayal) in Allapuzha, Kerala


Above Neelakurinji (KayalKurinji) can see in Changanacherry-Allapuzha road.

Neelakurinji or 'Strobilanthes kunthianum' blooms in 40 or so varieties, a majority of them being blue in color. 'Neela' literally translates to 'blue' and kurinji is the name given to it by the tribals of the area. Last seen in 2006, the time for viewing them begins in August and lasts up to October. In Munnar, one can view this great sight from Kovilur, Kadavari, Rajamala and Eravikulam National Park. Eravikulam is incidentally home to the endangered Nilgiri Tahr, hosting a majority of the remaining population of the species on the planet.
