Glimpses of Ancient Kerala
06 Nights & 07 Days
During the time of the British rule in India, Munnar was a part of the Kingdom of Travancore
but was the property of the Poonjar royal family. A British man by the name of John Daniel
Munro managed to convince the royal family to lease out land for tea planting. It was only
after India gained her independence that the Tatas made their entry into the lucrative tea
industry in Munnar. That was how Tata Tea Ltd. was formed in 1983. This helped in shaping
Munnar into what it is today, a serene hill station with exceptional beauty.
