Nedumudi is a village in the Alappuzha district of the Indian state of Kerala.[1] It is the birthplace of Malayalam actor Nedumudi Venu. Nedumudi sits on the banks of the river Pamba. It was the first village in Kerala to attain 100% Literacy.[citation needed]

Climate[edit]

Nedumudi is part of lower Kuttanadu. It experiences moderate climate, though in autumn, the Pamba river overflows and creates trouble. This flooding makes the soil rich for agriculture, the main economic occupation in Nedumudi. But in 2010, due to the unexpected climate change, the chance of another agricultural season is getting impossible.[citation needed]

The main celebration in the village is the annual festival of the Sree Bhagavathy temple, Kottaram. It is situated in Attuvathala. The festival is conducted by the four karas (sub divisions) of Nedumudi and the temple Devaswom.
