Mulanthuruthy tourism circuit off Kochi to connect important landmarks

 Tuesday, June 28, 2022 


A tourism circuit will come up soon that would connect historic churches and temples along with the expansive paddy fields and farming lands in and around Mulanthuruthy, located off Kochi.

With water bodies on both sides, Mulanthuruthy was awarded the Swaraj Trophy and cash prize of Rs. 25-lakh earlier this year since it was chosen as the best panchayat in Kerala.

A tourism circuit was visualized, since the setting is a 30-minute drive from Kochi, which witnessed the highest number of domestic and foreign tourists in Kerala, said Raju P. Nair, the Mulanthuruthy block panchayat president. The popular places in the region consist of six panchayats including the church that saw the celebrated Synod of Diamper in 1599, the Chotanikkara temple and the hometown of Adi Sankara.

M.P. Sivadattan, Kerala Tourism Advisory Council member, who throughout his term as the president of Kumbalanghi panchayat played a pivotal part in Kumbalanghi, which was stated as the first model-tourism village in India, is among those who are supporting to prepare the Mulanthuruthy tourism circuit.

This venture is anticipated to attract more tourists who can take pleasure in art forms, food and conventional farming practices of the area. They can live in homestays for a couple of days. It would also be a new attraction for high-end tourists coming to Kochi in cruise ships, for a tour of an entire day.
