Thousand Faces Of
Ashtamudi Lake, in the Kollam District of the Indian state of Kerala, is the most visited backwater and lake in the state. Ashtamudi Kayal is the second largest wetland ecosystem in Kerala.
The Ashtamudi Lake (in native language - Ashtamudi Kayal) is the second largest wetland ecosystem in Kerala. The term Ashtamudi, deriving from two Sanskrit words - 'Ashta' and 'Mudi' with meaning 'eight' and 'cone' respectively, gets the literal meaning "Eight Coned." For its name, the palm-shaped Ashtamudi Lake, however, owes a lot to its topography blessed with the Kallada river and its three tributaries viz. Chenthurnipuzha, Kalthuruthipuzha and Kulathupuzha. The lake being a confluence of these three tributaries is rightly called the gateway to the Kerala backwaters.
