Kumarakom – What’s in the Name?

Some say that the name Kumarakom was derived from the words ‘kuminja’ and ‘akam’. Together, they refer to a land formed by the accumulation of sediments. This explanation seems quite plausible as Kumarakom is a land constructed by the deposition of mud and other materials through natural and man-made methods.

According to another version, the name is a combination of the words ‘Kumara’ (Lord Subrahmanya) and ‘aham’ (home). This is with reference to the Murugan (Lord Subrahmanya) temple located a few kilometers from the heart of the village.
