Monippally - 'The Spicy Virgin Village'

Monippally is a small and peaceful village in Kottayam district, Kerala state, South India. Formerly known as 'Mohanappally'(Beautiful Place) or 'Munippally'(Temple of 'Muni's, Sage or Saints). In her yesteryears, Monippally was a famous ginger cultivation area in Central Travancore. Dry Ginger, Turmeric and Kacholam were the main attractions of trade.

Monippally is located in between Kuravilangad and Koothattukulam in the MC Road (SH1). This village belongs to Uzhavoor Grama Panchayat in Meenachil (Pala) Taluk. Uzhavoor,Veliyannoor, Koothattukulam, Elanji, Njeezhoor and Kuravilangad are the neighboring areas.

Monippally's non-resident population has always had a significant impact on its economy. But agriculture is the soul of Monippallians, and is critically important to its economy. Villagers are engaged in crop plantations of rubber, cocoa, vanilla, black pepper, ginger and turmeric.

Due to a large amount of emigration, and thus a large amount of foreign cash flowing into the village, the village has a very high social life index - very high literacy rates and high occurrence of 'creature comforts'.

There's a strong emphasis on education and healthcare - there are seven schools and three hospitals within a 4 km² area.
