Thirunelli, a temple located in Kerala is a tourist destination. Located to the north of Wayanad district in the Bramagiri Hill, the temple is surrounded by many mountains and there are forests in and around the place. Thirunelli is known to have once been an important center for trade and it was also a major pilgrim center, despite being located in a remote valley surrounded by jungles.

The temple has been mentioned in many historical records dating back to many centuries and there are many archeological sites that are located in and around the temple complex. Recent evidence that has been found suggests that there were two main villages near the Thirunelli Temple. Excavations have found coins that dated back to the 9th and 10th century. The temple was clearly an important part of the history of early Kerala.

Papanasini is small stream that is located around 1 km from the temple complex and a dip at this stream is reputed to be able to cleanse the body of all impurities.

The temple pond is called the Panchateertham and there are many carvings and sculptures that can be seen near the holy pond.
