Vishwananthapuram named after a living legend

Idukki: The district has quaintly named places like Balanpillai City, Michael City and Kennedy Nook. Distinct from all these is Vishwananthapuram, named after Vishwanath Iyer, aka Murukkudi Swamy. The name change of Murukkudi village was made through a Central notification. It was Iyer who on migrating to Kumili in 1928, on the advice of his father Aandy Iyer, made the present day town and brought the light of learning to the high ranges. The 103-year old still possesses phenomenal memory and is still vocal about British rule. He spent his life-tile earnings for the place, and is solely responsible for the development of Police station, Post office and STD. He has earned his place in history.
