Munnar came to be known to the outside world in the 1870s with the visit of the British Resident of the then Travancore kingdom John Daniel Munro. Munro, who visited the place as part of settling the border dispute between Travancore and the nearby state of Madras literally fell for the beauty of the region. Though the Munnar region fell under the jurisdiction of the Travancore kingdom, it was the ‘jenmam land’ (land of birth) of Poonjar royal family. Since it was a jenmam land the royal family enjoyed absolute powers over the land as the landlord.
