  • This monastery where the monks practice austerity was established by two priests; Francis Acharya and Bede Griffiths in a vast compound has now a lot to see and learn. A church, library, gardens, modern dairy farm etc, the ashram is considered as a holy place irrespective of caste. The silence except the light whistling sound of the wind, the cool and fresh air, the well maintained compound and the breathtaking view from here - all will give us a special feel. The monks who are there now won't wear sandals and their dressing style is also simple. After visiting the ashram, I wonder how they live such a simple life.
  • it was fantastic evening. we reached there evening by 4.00 PM. It was amazing place despite of being a Muslim. place was covered with snow and i wasn't able to see my colleagues just 10 mtrs ahead of me. we were blessed with rain and totally rejuvenated by the climate. i am not sure that superb climate is there usual or not, but that it was just outstanding.
  • Kurisumala Ashram is a well-known Christian pilgrimage center as well as monastery. The prayer area is quite large to execute wishes and relaxation. The cattle and diary farm run by the priests here is another attraction. Kurisumala Ashram is thronged by crowds on Good Friday when thousands of religious enthusiasts from far and near meet and go up the mountain holding wood crosses to enact the way of the cross.
  • Highest hill in vagamon. Breath taking view from the top. Trekking up the hill is an awesome experience. Avoid climbing up when its raining as the rocky path become slippery and dangerous.
  • Nice place,nature friendly.. best atmosphere
