Kumarakom – The Reclaimed Land

Legend has it that Parasurama, one of the 10 incarnations of Lord Vishnu reclaimed the land of Kerala by throwing his axe in to the sea. History talks of another Parasurama, Mr Alfred George Baker, who reclaimed the wonder land, Kumarakom, from 500 acres of wetlands lying north-east of Lake Vembanad. Our modern-day Parasurama created a great, fertile area from marshy land.

It was Baker’s interest in agriculture, his industry and his love of Nature and diligent care of it that enabled him to create this paradise.

A. G. Baker
