Literally means ‘Sands of midnight’. Pathiramanal is a beautiful island nestled at the Vembanad Lake in Kumarakom. Stretched at a vast area of 10 acres, the island is home to a variety of migratory birds that flock here from distant parts of the world. Emerging as a popular tourist attraction, the island also houses a zoo and an aquarium and is accessible by motorboats and speedboats. Away from the maddening of city life, Pathiramanal is surely a fascinating escape for the tourists in a peaceful ambience and is also a paradise for the bird watchers.
