Megalithic Burial Sites, Kolli Hills

Megalithic Burial Sites, Kolli Hills
Mudhumakkal Thaazhi is nothing but the burial urns. This has been recently excavated by ASI and might be dated to earlier Christian era. Concrete stage has been built around it to protect it from destruction due to the tourism activities. It is a must visit place to know about our ancient customs.

At the top of the hill were burial structures probably Mesolithic dating to 4000 BC.  The flat stones at the top that covered the “tomb” were about 10 feet to a side and it must have taken some effort to get them there.  Not quite Stonehenge, but impressive nevertheless
