Kerala has had some brilliant engineering minds whose works still reflect in the unique geography and landscape of the state. A bund that separates the largest lake in Kerala and connects two picturesque districts of the State. Thannermukkom Bund, considered to be the largest mud regulator in the country separates the Vembanad lake and connects Kottayam and Alappuzha districts in Kerala. The bund has been a blessing to the farmers as it separates brackish waters from the fresh waters fed by the rivers.
The bund is also named after the village in Alappuzha, which is just as lovely as any other quaint village in the district. Thanneermukkam village is sustained through farming and fishing and has been blessed in abundance with its natural beauty. The place is known for its scenic view of the Alappuzha backwaters and Vembanad Lake, where the sunrise and sunset views are nothing short of spectacular. No nature enthusiast should miss exploring the unique ecosystem and biodiversity of the place, which is also a habitat for various species of migratory birds.
