Poomala was largely a forest, until the area was occupied by the Christian settlers from central Travancore. It is one of the popular tourist hill stations in India. Attractions include Muniarra (a cave where a saint once meditated). The small dam in the southern part of Poomala was initially built only for irrigation purposes, then managed by the Minor Irrigation Department. Today, it is a growing tourist area. Poomala dam was officially designated as a tourist centre by the Home Minister of State, Kodiyeri Balakrishnan, on 21 March 2010. The dam is situated 94.50 meters above mean sea level. To its north lies another dam, Pathazhakundu, which presently is oriented only for irrigation. There are some more villages named Parambayi, Poomala, Chottupara. Nowadays these villages are known together as Poomala. As like the Name 'Poomala', it is nice to see with full of greenaries.
