You know Munnar as that destination, where you can travel for the cold, the wind, the hills and other things. But there is much more to the Munnar that you see now.
An unexplored landscape till the later half of 19th century, Munnar came into the limelight when planters from Europe started plantations. The 'jenmam land' of Poonjar Royal Family got an upgrade. Different crops were planted but later the planters abandoned much of it and concentrated on Tea alone. Daniel Munro, A.W Turnor, A.H Sharp and many more were the prominent planters who had an inevitable role in transforming the Virgin Hills of Munnar to Aromatic Hills. Tata Group also entered the picture in 1964. Later in 2005, the Kannan Devan Hills Produce Company Pvt. Ltd was formed. This is just one side of Munnar with the plantation industry as the main character.
