Pathiramanal has a mytholigical significance attached to its creation. According to myths a young brahmin dived into Vembanad Lake to perform his evening ablutions and the water made way for land to rise from below. The Island lies between Thaneermukkom and Kummarakom, and is accessible only by boat. 1 and 1/2 hours by motor boat or 30 mins by speed boat is all it takes to reach this amazingly beautiful place. Pathiramanal, meaning sands of the night, is an ideal place to take a break.
