Parampuzha is a village in Kottayam district. Meenachil river runs through parampuzha and no wonder most of the population here tried their hands on agriculture. But guess what. This is not your dad’s farm land.

People love to experiment and it is more dynamic than you would typically expect. If the price of latex goes down, they can replace all rubber plants in no time with some thing more profitable.

The main attractions in parampuzha are the following:-

Meenachil River

The river is formed by several streams originating from the “Sahyan” (Western Ghats). The general elevation ranges from 77 m to 1156 m in the highlands and less than 2 m in the lowlands  and 8 to 68 m in the midlands. The Meenachil has a watershed area of 1208.11 km². The river has a total annual yield of 2349 million cubic metre and an annual utilizable yield of 1110 million cubic metre.

Without Meenachil, parampuzha would be have been just “para”. !

Parampuzha Church
