Pazhassi Raja Tomb is a famous memorial of the lion of Kerala or Pazhassi Raja. He is known for organising guerrilla warfare against the British in Kerala. His mortals are kept inside this memorial, which is located at Mananthavady.

In 1805, Pazhassi Raja was cremated after his death during the warfare against the British East India Company. He died in an encounter at Mavilanthodu, which is near Pulpally that is around 1 km away from the main town of Mananthavady. Pazhassi Raja is considered to be the last king who revolted against the British after the death of Tipu Sultan.

"Well maintained"

Worth to know the History. The trouble our ancestors took and the fights and resistance they had to encounter for the freedom we enjoy today. Well kept and silence should be maintained.

This is the tomb where Pazahassi King was cremated and then the tomb was built. There is also a museum nearby which has stuff from that era. If you are into history you would enjoy this place.
