Manimala has been fortunate to be the birth place of Cardinal Antony Padiyara, the first Major Arch Bishop of Sero Malabar Catholic Church. He died on 23rd March 2000 at the age of 80.

Retd I.G. Mr M.K. Joseph and Late K.J. Chacko one of the freedom fighters hail from Manimala.

 Here live highly literate and peace loving people. They are hardworking and love to toil in their little owned lands for living. Most of them have their own little land of rubber plantations tapping the rubber trees themselves using specially designed knives .

 The major annual event in Manimala is the famous "Manimala Palli Perunnal" celebrated from January 1st to 7th . This feast is celebrated in veneration of Holy Mages- the three wise men who trekked on camel backs to Bethlehem to worship the newborn Jesus trailing the star. The main feast is celebration 6th January while on 7th it is "Parish feast:"

 People from near and far flock to this church regardless of cast or religion during this season. Families migrated to other parts of Kerala return to their relations or old neighbours here to pay their respect to the "Three Kings" who, they believe protect and deliver in their spiritual and worldly needs.

 Manimalites outside Kerala spend this festive season with fond memories of yesteryears.
