Kottayam, the town which houses my beautiful village, was till recently famous as the land of lakes, letters and latex. It is also known as Akshara Nagari for its over 95% literacy. It has now another feather in its cap with the title Mural City and that is not without any reason. Majority of the walls of buildings, temples and churches are painted in different themes, by some 350 artists from India and abroad. The pictorial depiction of Noah's Ark on a church wall is considered to be the largest in the country!
