Kannimara Teak is one of the worlds largest living teak tree found in Parambikulam with amazing girth of 7.02 m and height of 39.98 m. This tree was awarded Maha Virksha puraskar during 1994-95.
According to the local tribal belief here when this tree was tried to cut down, the blood spurted out from the place of cut. This tree was being since then worshipped by the local tribes in Parambikulam as “Virgin tree”. Thus the name Kannimara is given as the word ‘ Kanni’ means ‘Virgin’. This tree has been awarded ‘Mahavriksha Puraskar’ by the Government of India.
