Biggest mermaid statue of the state at Kayamkulam shore
Kayamkulam: The biggest mermaid statue of the state has been ready for tourists at the shore of Kayamkulam lake. The statue has been made by sculptor Johns Kollakadavu, who won the state youth award.
The 26 ft high and 35 ft lengthy statue is part of Kayamkulam Lake tourism project. It has been completed in a period of three and a half years. The government had sanctioned Rs 6.40 lakh for the project. However, it took Rs 14 lakh to complete the statue.
Johns found the excess money by mortgaging his house and property. MLA U Prathibha received the statue from Johns for government. The statue will be submitted for public along with the lake tourism project in November.
