Other main Islands in Kochi
A few decades ago, the islands in Vembanadu Lake, which were part of the erstwhile Kingdom of Kochi, were in an abandoned state with limited facilities. But things have changed at a very fast pace and these islands turned out to be one of the thickly inhabited islands with all the amenities, thanks to the urbanization and the fast pace of migration to Kochi. The islands on the Vembanadu Lake like Vypeen, Gundu, Vallarpadom and Bolgatty have been subjected to such a fast pace of growth and the value of land in these places in the real estate map has shot up manifold recently.
