Kanan Devan Hills is a village in Idukki district in the Indian state of Kerala. The village of Kannan Devan Hills in Devikulam Taluk, was given on lease on 11 July 1877 by the Poonjar Thampuran to John Daniel Munroe, of London and Peermedu, for tea plantation. The lands and plantations were later resumed by the Government of Kerala by the KANNAN DEVAN HILLS (RESUMPTION OF LANDS) ACT, 1971.
Today Kannan Devan Hills is a popular tourist spot.
Due to the harsh working conditions of the Kannan Devan Hills Plantation, the female workforce organized the Munnar Plantation Strike of 2015, which inspired many surrounding plantation workers to better their working conditions.
