Land of Letters, Lakes, Latex

The first Indian city to achieve a 100 percent literacy rate among its citizens, Kottayam has as much of a reputation for its educational standards as for its massive rubber industry. Religious tourism in Kottayam also contributes significantly to the local economy, with many pilgrims flocking the diverse area's temples, mosques, and churches. Aside from the religious sights, Kottayam's proximity to excellent hiking opportunities in the surrounding mountains provides an additional reason to visit.
