Official Website of Nehru Trophy Boat Race
The Nehru Trophy Boat Race named after Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru is conducted on
the Punnamda Lake, near Alappuzha, on the second Saturday of August every year.
On the day of this fiercely fought boat race, the tranquil lake front is
transformed into a sea of humanity with an estimated two lakh people, including
tourists from abroad for watching it. For the people of each village in
Kuttanad, a victory at this race for their village boat is something to be
celebrated for months to come.
