The many resorts that have since come up in and around Kumarakom have transformed this quiet settlement into highly sought after destination.

Kumarakom is derived from Kumarahum Kumara and ahun mean the house of the Lord Subrahmany. Located 15 kms west of Kottayam town, the picturesque village of Kumarakom is actually a cluster of small islands on the eastern banks of the Vembanad Lake.
