Kottayam was a part of the princely state of Travancore before it was declared a district in the year 1949. Known as the language capital of Kerala, it is the hometown of a vast number of books and periodicals and is the center of publishing businesses in the state. Located in southwest Kerala, it is the only district that does not share a border with either the Arabian Sea or the other states. The first printing press in Kerala was established by a British Missionary in Kottayam in the year 1821. Interestingly Kottayam got its name from the words “Kotta” meaning fort and “Akam” meaning interior. Combination of these words means “the interior of the fort”.
The city has also witnessed the epic struggle to eradicate untouchability, a practice that prevailed before the freedom struggle of India, through the famous movement called “Vaikom Satyagraha”. The Shiva temple at Vaikom was the venue of this iconic movement. Kottayam houses Hindustan News Print Limited and also the headquarters of the Indian Rubber Board. The district ranks first in the production of rubber in India.
The district has numerous rivers, beautiful backwater stretches, ancient religious sites, hill stations, verdant paddy fields, and coir villages. The city has plenty of rubber plantations and is aptly called the “Land of Latex”. The city that claims to be the first to have achieved 100% literacy in India deserves to be in the top list of locations for those who are looking to buy flats in Kottayam. However, as reputed builders in the state, we would like to give all the prospective buyers a clear picture of the advantages of buying flats or apartments in Kottayam.

Kottayam Railway Station is roughly 2 kilometers from the city and is significant especially during the Sabarimala pilgrim season as it is used by the pilgrims going to Sabarimala temple. Even the state transport buses operate from here for the purpose. The main KSRTC Bus Depot is 2 kilometers away from the railway station in Kottayam. The Kottayam Railway Station also serves many tourists who are traveling to famous places like Kumarakom.
The city has a proven record of producing exceptional institutions in the field of arts, science, and engineering. CMS College in Kottayam is the first College in Kerala and one of the oldest colleges in South India. Located right in the middle of the city, it was set up in 1817. The city also has one of the best women’s colleges and medical colleges in Kerala. The Government Medical College at Gandhinagar in Kottayam is located at a distance of 8 kilometers to the north of Kottayam. Kottayam also has one of the premier government engineering colleges in Kerala at Kidangoor at a distance of 20 kilometers from the main town.

Therefore people who own apartments in Kottayam will be definitely leading a modern hassle-free lifestyle with easy access to all the day to day conveniences.
A predominant hike in the value of real estate properties will help prospective buyers get good returns in the future. Therefore NRIs will benefit from investing in flats in Kottayam especially if their extended family lives in the city. Even for people who do not belong to Kottayam investing in the city as a second home is a brilliant option.
