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. Kottayam is in Kottayam District.

Where to stay in Kottayam

Kottayam offers an eclectic mix of large resorts, tacky modern hotels, waterside villas, and small guesthouses catering to a diverse range of visitors. Smaller, more intimate guesthouses tend to cluster around the center of the city, while larger resorts can be found on the outskirts or near the area's many waterways. Many visitors choose to stay about 10 km (6.2 mi) to the west of the city proper, on the scenic shores of Lake Vembanad.
