A quiet and clean nature blessed municipal town on the banks of the huge Vembanad

Lake, with branches of several backwater streams and rivers flowing into the same

The population of around hundred thousand mainly consists of devout Hindus, followed

by sizeable Syrian Christians and a few Muslims. The local people are literate, peace

loving, religious and friendly. This small town has produced many literary figures, artists,

political & religious leaders.

Although there are many ancient temples and churches in the locality, the prominent

landmark of Vaikom is the ancient & majestic Shiva temple, a marvel of traditional Kerala

temple architecture. Mahatma Gandhi, Father of Indian Nation began his historic temple

entry Satyagraha by entering this temple along with his followers. This movement was

to confer the right of entry to each and every Hindu brethren in all the Hindu worship

Vaikom is a self-sufficient town which can cater to most of the demands of the locals

and the basic needs of the discerning visitors. In and around the town, there are many

good hospitals. You can easily find several Banks, ATMs and foreign exchange centers

in the town.

Garden fresh vegetables, varieties of banana, coconuts and paddy are in plenty. The

unpolluted lake & backwaters of Vaikom is a rich source of tasty and good quality

fishes. This water body is a main source of KARIMEEN (PEARL FISH) which has the

unique 'State Fish' status. Vaikom's coconut toddy, a mildly intoxicating local brew, is

a leisure drink popular with the native public, but the visitors are advised to experiment

the same only under the guidance of your lodging hosts.
