History the Mystery:

           Kolli Malai is a small mountain range situated in middle of Tamil Nadu in Namakkal district of India and is a part of the Eastern Ghats. The mountains are below 1300 and above 1000m altitude above sea level and cover an area around 280 km². Kolli Malai has 70 hairpin bends to reach the top of the hills. The mountains are comparatively untouched by commercial tourism and still retain their natural beauty.

           Kolli Malai means "Mountains of Death" sometimes known as Kolli Hills. The reason is that early journalism records the existence of an image called Kollippavai on top of these hills. This image was believed to represent the courage of a maiden who lured wayfarers by her beauty and killed them.

           The region was ruled by Valvil Ori more or less 200 A.D., who praised as one of the seven great philanthropists of earliest Tamil Nadu. His valor and marksmanship are sung by some poets, and his exploits are a trendy part of folklore. Valvil is said to have killed a lion, bear, deer & a boar with a single arrow. Kolli malai is featured in several works of classical Tamil literature such as Silappathigaram, Manimekalai, Purananuru and Ainkurnuru. Kolli malai is said to be protected by Kollipavai, the local deity. According to legend, the sages select Kolli hills when they were searching for a peaceful place to perform their penance. However, the demons invaded the hills to disturb the penance when the sages began their rituals. The sages prayed to Kollipavai, who according to the mythology chased away the demons with her charming smile. Kollipavai is still worshipped by the people here and her smile is admired. The mountains have a number of mythological legends associated with them, and frequently come across as an eerie place in contemporary tales due to the unexplored and less traveled terrain.
