Interesting facts about Kayamkulam Lake
Kayamkulam was a medieval feudal kingdom popular as odanadu. This place was reined by the Kayamkulam Rajas, with their royal palaces at Eruva and Krishnapuram. It is believed that Maharaja Marthanda Varma (1706-58) defeated Kayamkulam and took over its territories to Travancore.
It is believed that the realm of Kayamkulam had a huge army led by 'Yeruvayil Achutha warrior'- a valiant commander and so the huge army of Travancore tried three times before they won in capturing Kayamkulam.
