The Pazhassi Raja tomb was built in memory of Kerala Varma Pazhassi Raja, known as the Lion of Kerala. The tomb was constructed in the place where his body was cremated, and is situated in Mananthavady. Pazhassi Raja was an heir of the Kottayam royal family and was one of the earliest people to have revolted against the East India Company. The Pulpally Cave where Pazhassi Raja took refuge during the war lies near the tomb. Underneath the tomb is a museum which contains Pazhassi Raja's sword and other information about the cultural history of Kerala. Some of his possessions such as mural paintings, ancient coins, models of temples, and umbrella stones are housed in this museum. The memorial is managed by the Kerala State Archaeology Department.
