Kumarakom is a popular tourism destination located near the city of Kottayam, in KeralaIndia, famous for its backwater tourism. It is set in the backdrop of the Vembanad Lake, the largest freshwater lake in the state of Kerala.Kumarakom was within the jurisdiction of Thekkumcore King during those period and it was also usual to have fighting and competitions among local Kings. Chundan Vallom and Veppu Vallom was widely used among the local kings for their lightning attacks and fighting in the central Travancore. During those days Vembanad Lake was a dangerous Zone, therefore the Thekkumcore King kept enough soldiers in Kumarakom and also he constructed a Fort on the entrance of Kottathodu in Kumarakom.Soldiers were kept in certain areas of Kumarakom for the protection of enemy attacks and those places are still called as Padakkalam, Padanilam etc., in Kumarakom. We can still see the remains of the wall of Six feet breadth of the above said fort, near the village office of Kumarakom
Kumarakom is home to a wide variety of flora and faunaKumarakom Bird Sanctuary is a noted bird sanctuary where many species of migratory birds visit. The Vembanad Lake, the largest backwater in Kerala, is habitat for many marine and freshwater fish species and it teems with Karimeen  shrimp  common name Poovalan chemeen. The bird sanctuary extends over 14 acres , and came into existence following preservation efforts from the government. It is a major tourist attraction.Fishing, agriculture and tourism are the major economic activities. Kumarakom's perfectly balanced tropical climate is very conductive to cultivation. The place has expanses of mangrove forests, paddy fields and coconut groves. Fruits like Banana, Mango, Jackfruit, Ambazhanga, Puli , Chaambenga, Peraycka, Aathaycka and Pineapple grow here. Also, cocoa and coffee, chena and chembu , grow well and were cultivated under the coconut trees. This rich agricultural environment is mainly irrigated using interspersed waterways and canals of the Meenachil river. The smaller canals are often lined by hibiscus plants which lean partly over the canals to form a green canopy, from which hang the lovely hibiscus flowers.
In the olden days, when the bund separating the backwaters from the sea was not yet built, the water in the canals moved in and out with the sea tide and it was salty. After theThanneermukkam bund was constructed, the connection to the open sea was not free anymore, and so the tidal movement of the water in the canals stopped. It stagnated and then plenty of water hyacinths started growing densely in the canals,forming lovely green carpets with pale lilac flowers carpets.
