Quietly nestled in the middle of the Vembanad Lake in Kochi, Vallarpadam is one part of the group of islands in the state of Kerala- the one one being Willington Island. Vallarpadam is hustled near the Port of Kochi, the island only has a meagre population of around 10000 people. Considered to be one of the most picturesque and scenic places in the region, the town is mostly famous for the Basilica of Our Lady of Ransom, known as the Vallarpadam Church.
Surrounded by beautiful paddy fields, the tourists are also intrigued by the large number of fisher folks that occupy the region, fishing being the major occupation. There are several ships and Valakettu fishing nets found on the ports of the lake which draws a large number of tourists. Other than the church, there is also a famous Bhagavathy Temple which is a popular pilgrim centre of devotees and is visited by tourists and devotees alike.
