Marayoor or Marayur is a town located in the Idukki district of Kerala. This place in South India is famous for its natural Sandalwood forests and sugar rich jaggery production. Marayoor Sarkara or Marayoor Jaggery is known to be one of the sweetest jaggery available in India. Jaggery production is considered to be a cottage industry in this part of the world and is traditionally made in the respective farms. Initially, the sugar cane juice is heated in a huge vessel. It is then boiled and condensed to form high-quality jaggery balls. Marayoor falls in the rain shadow region and the quality of the molasses is attributed to the specialty in temperature and the ph value of the earth. Some of the famous temples in Kerala are also using Marayoor Sarkara.
