KOLLAD | A Captivating Land

Kerala’s towns are far removed from big-city concrete jungles, and the dividing line between urban and rural is fine indeed, with green avenues and placid backwaters gracing the busiest cites, and tarred roads and public schools evident in smallest villages.

Palm-fringed river side, endless paddy fields, rolling hills, back waters that snake past tiled-roof house and spotless village roads: Kollad is a land of unmatched beauty. Malayali society is unique, boasting a highly literate population, a sex ratio favoring women, matriarchal sub-societies and a people unfettered by the divisions of case and creed. Diverse religions live here in peaceful amicability, each enriching the state with its customs and practices. Add vibrant arts and colorful festivals, ancient shrines and delectable cuisine, and Kollad is a must stop destination.

Scenic beauty of Kochalummoodu paddy fields and creek that joints into Kodoor River

Kochalummoodu bridge over the creek that joins river Kodoor is a picturesque place in Kottayam. Just 3 kilometers from the busy puthuppally junction is this wonderful place. Kodoor River has a long history with old trading routes between the coastal district named Alapuzha and the Eastern Villages of Kottayam. There was a busy boat jetty at Puthuppally named Angadi (Market). The scenic beauty of this place has attracted many. Even though public attraction to this place is not much, the vast lush greenery is a major attraction  and is very pleasing to the eyes. This creek joins Kodoor River at Parakkal Kadavu.
