A boat house is a large vessel used in the waters of Alappuzha for tourists; ironically, it was not designed and introduced for tourists. As Kerala has a unique landscape with prosperous fresh water body, your endless mercy the almighty! It is so easy to move bulk cargo through water. To manage efficient heavy cargo moving, in olden days, huge water vessels were introduced which float royally and worth fully, through the waters of Kerala; a land fondled by raindrops. Those vessels were named "Kettuvalloms" or "Kuvuvalloms" are the ancestors of what we call 'houseboat' or boat house, in these days . Legend: Kettu – Knot, to tie etc ….. Vallom - Boat Kevu - Cargo, goods etc….. Vallom - boat
