One day we took a drive up the mountain side and stopped to overlook the valley. Behind us on the rocks are some strange looking ‘houses’… Muniyaras. Muniyaras, made of three or more upright stones and a huge capstone, are believed to be the burial site of the people of the prehistoric period about 2000 years ago, the earliest inhabitants of the High Ranges. All the structures have similar features pointing out that they were made during a particular period of time either by a nomadic tribe or the inhabitants of the earlier time. It is believed that these are tombs and that they are the remaining evidence of a tribe who revered the dead. There are a varieties of sizes, but all have the same basic formation. When you look at the structure, you wonder how the large piece of granite was made and then placed on the top. Unfortunately, not much archaeological work has been done with them. In 1985, some pottery and iron metal pieces were found in the chambers but there has been no action taken to protect them. There full story remains a mystery.
