Other than the history, the place has nothing to offer. Most dolmens are in bad shape due to neglect. One is intact and is no longer neglected with the development of tourism

If you are driving to Munnar from Marayoor, don't forget to visit this place. Located 2-3 Kms away on Marayoor - Kanthalloor road, these dolmens or urn/cist burials owns history that dates back to the stone age. A must visit spot for Paleophiles.

The Dolmens are believed to be an ancient burial site, perched high on a mountain. The hike from our hotel - the Spice Tree Resort was not too difficult - though there were some tricky rocks to navigate as we approached the site. The structures are interesting, though there is not a great deal of information about them at the site. However, we enjoyed a great view from this location and a beautiful sunset.

10 rupees entry. That's all you pay for structures that have withstood millennia! There are many of these STONE AGE and IRON AGE dolmens, spread all over a few hills, unprotected and some even vandalized. But mostly just lost to history and time. Hidden behind vines, or pretending to be mere rocks, unsuccessfully, there is the whisper of history that keeps running through here. The area is occupied by tribals, and the town nearby is known for it's jaggery. Strangely enough, the dolmens remain in the shadows, and perhaps it's for the best.

It was very interesting to visit this pre-historic site. Interesting to hear the local view of what they are for but they are aware of the European view. If you have a chance go

This is a must visit place if you are a nature lover and love to visit historic places. This is indeed such a place. The place also has breathtaking views. We were able to see the sunset. It was splendid.

Evening and morning before 9 am is the best time for visit the Muniyara Dolmens because the heat of sun is very heavy in that area.

Not much is written on the internet and it is very less frequented by tourists. But this place offers great views of the surroundings. We had trek up a small hillock on top of which there are several dolmens scattered. The place was absolutely empty except for us. We had a lot of fun exploring the place.
