Poonjar Royal Family
The historical backdrop of Munnar is never finished without a notice of the Poonjar regal family. Over an extensive stretch of history, this imperial family had the advantage to be the caretakers of the virgin slopes of Munnar.
The historical backdrop of Poonjar Royal Family starts in Tamil Nadu from where they needed to escape following a savage battle for power. Quite a while in the past, the Madurai realm was controlled by Manavikrama, a strong lord of the Pandyan administration. Other than an incredible realm, Madurai had the qualification of being a focal point of expressions. The Pandyan rulers had extraordinary worship to the goddess Madurai Meenakshi.

When Madurai went under the assault of the close by Chola administration and after a savage fight, the Pandyas recovered their realm. The recovering of Madurai was commended with awesome celebrations. Be that as it may, in the evening, when everybody was sleeping after the festivals, Viswanatah Naicken a general of the Pandyas who had favored the Cholas, opened the post entryways for the foe.
The Chola armed force released a savage assault killing the resting warriors. A priest securely took Manavikrama and his close family out of the post through a long mystery burrow. The family had figured out how to take a decent piece of their fortune as adornments, jewels and gold. The passage drove them to a woods region from where they arrived at Palghatusserry (the current day Palghat). There they resided for a short period in the place of a Brahmin. In any case, when he came to realize that his visitor was King Manavikrama, the Brahmin family dreaded the disappointment of the Cholas and requested that they leave the spot.
From that point, Manavikrama moved to Vanneri, which is essential for the current day Thrissur. There he fabricated a home and after at some point a portion of his previous subjects stayed with him. They were the poligars of Theni, Uthamapalayam and Kumbam. However they stretched out help to their dear lord to win back Madurai, Manavikrama had sparse interest. However the poligars returned, they didn’t free expectation in a return of the King. They constructed a royal residence at Mele Goodalloor fully expecting a difference at the top of the priority list of their dear ruler.
As time elapsed by Manavikrama was racked with a sensation of weakness at Vanneri and during this time he was drawn closer by the lord of Elangallur (present day Edappally). Both the regal heads before long evoked an emotional response of fellowship which brought about Elangallur ruler wedding the little girl of Manavikrama.

After Manavikrama’s passing, his oldest child Kulasekhara assumed responsibility for family undertakings. The ruler was a goal-oriented man of honor who needed to recapture the greatness of his family. He made courses of action to move to the Goodalloor royal residence and pull together the devoted Poligars.
Destiny was more liberal than the youthful sovereign had thought. He came to realize that the realm of Poonjar was available to be purchased following the passing of its clan leader. Poonjar lay inverse to the Goodalloor slope reaches and it was very normal for the ruler to have interest in the locale. With the assistance of the fortune his family had brought from Madurai, the sovereign purchased the Poonjar area from its caretakers, the regal group of Thekkumkoor. Other than selling the land, Aditya Varma, the Thekumkoor King, introduced Kulasekhara as the lord of Poonjar.
Kulasekhara was a passionate fan of the goddess of Madurai Meenakshi sanctuary and the primary thing he did was to construct a sanctuary for the goddess on the banks of Meenachil stream which coursed through Poonjar. A terrific castle and fortification was additionally constructed soon. It is said that the icon introduced at the sanctuary was the first symbol of Madurai Meenakshi sanctuary, which King Manavikrama had carried with him.
The Pandya lords were liberal rulers and had high respect for their subjects. However their unique title was Perumal, they embraced the title Raja for male individuals and Thampuratty for female individuals.
