The cave featured in the thriller Manjummel Boys- 

Guna Caves

Guna Caves, also known as Devils Kitchen is a natural heritage site located in Kodaikanal, Tamil Nadu. The place became very popular after a Tamil movie named ‘Guna’ was shot here in 1992.

Reportedly, many people have disappeared into the cave and have never been found.

As of 2016, police recorded 16 disappearances in connection with the cave.


To date, only one person has ever escaped from its depths, which serves as plot for the 2024 Malayalam film "Manjummel Boys".

Ultimately, the deep narrow caves were closed to the public forever. As of 2024, the road to the cave was reopened to the public, but the entrance to the cave remains closed for the safety of the tourists.

The best time to visit Guna Caves is from April to June when the skies are clear. During these months, the walk from Moir Point to the caves through the pine forest is relatively easier.
