Sasthamkotta Lake

Sasthamkotta Lake

Shasthamkota Lake, Shasthamkota Lake tours, Visit Shasthamkota Lake of KeralaLocation : 19 Kms From Kollam Town, Kerala
Area : 375 Hectares
Nearby Attraction : Sastha Temple

Sasthamkotta known as the 'queen of lakes' has the fresh Water Lake spreading over the area. It is situated 29 kms away from Kollam.

An ancient Sastha Temple on its shores, with resident tribes of monkeys, adds sanctity to the waters.

Covering an area of approximately 375 hectares, Shasthamcotta Lake does not get frozen in winter and fresh water is available 365 days a year. This large lake is totally devoid of any flora and there is no plant growth in the waters of the lake.

A larva called "Cavaborus" abounds in the lake. They eat up the viruses and bacteria in the water thus contributing substantially to the high degree of purity of the water.

Shasthamcotta Lake supplies drinking water to approximately 10 million people including the population of the Municipality of Kollam. This project was undertaken and completed by Indo-Norwegian consortium.

How to get there
There are frequent bus services from Kollam.

Places to Stay
Accommodation is available at the PWD Rest House.
