The place gets its name from the impressions of the feet found on the rock surface here, which is believed to be of Rama, the incarnation of Lord Vishnu, as told in the Indian epic Ramayana.

Ramakalmedu is noted for its verdant, cool hills and also for the panoramic and picturesque views of villages in the neighboring state of Tamilnadu, which is towards the eastern side of the Western Ghats.

There is an interesting story behind this statue of Kuravan and Kurathi. It is said that Kuravan and Kurathi are two historical characters behind the construction of the Idukki dam. The rocks between the Idukki dam are named after them. According to the sources, Kuravan and Kurathi helped the authorities to find the right place for constructing the dam. You can see the statue of Kuravan with his family along with a cook upon the hills. But tourists are not allowed to climb upon the statue.
