Kottayam district in Kerala has staked a claim to be the nation’s first mural city, altering itself into a virtual art gallery with murals adorning just about every wall around town.

When chief minister Oommen Chandy declared it a mural city, it was another feather in Kottayam’s cap with the town already priding itself for its beautiful lakes, total literacy and rubber plantations that had given it the label of “Land of lakes, letters and [rubber] latex”.

The mural city concept was realised by around 300 artists from different states and some from abroad, who worked side by side with artists from Kerala, turning the whole town into a canvas of sorts and enriching every wall with a rich collection of mural paintings.
