Shenduruny Wildlife SanctuaryShendurni Wildlife Sancturies, situated on the banks of the Shendurny River, tours in kerala
 
Shendurni Wildlife Sanctuary, 66 km from Kollam town on the Kollam - Shencotta road, is a green valley of splendid forests, situated on the banks of the Shendurny River. The Shenduruny forest was declared a wildlife sanctuary in 1984. The Name Shenduruny comes from an endemic species of tree called Chenkuruny (gluta travancoria), mainly confined to this region. The artificial lake formed by the parappar dam built across the shenduruny and kulathupuzha rivers occupies the central region of the sanctuary.the Shenduruny Valley is one of the richest floral areas of Kerala. Closely is Tenmalai, where a number of tea and coffee estates can be found. It is conveniently accessible from Kollam.

Shenduruny was the cradle of one of the oldest river valley civilisations in India - one older than Indus valley (4400 - 3700 bc). Remains of a stone age culture to the mesolithic period, have been excavated from a large cave at the northwestern part of the Shenduruny river. The case which is large enough to hold 20 people at a time has paintings similar to the mesolithic paintings found in the caves of central India.
