Nehru Trophy Boat Race 
a spectacular Regatta
 

The Nehru Trophy Boat Race, a major water sport in Kerala, is conducted at 'Punnamada Lake' at Alleppey on the second saturday of every August. 

The event is a commemoration of the visit to this place by the late Prime Minister of India, Jawaharlal Nehru, in 1952. 

Jawaharlal Nehru donated a rolling trophy to be awarded to the winner. The trophy is a replica of a snake-boat in silver, placed on wooden abacus on which the following words of Panditji are inscribed above his signature.
 
"To the winner of the boat-race which is a unique  feature of community life in Travancore-Cochin". 

Many different kinds of country-boats like Iruttukuthy, Veppu and Churulan also participate in the race; women and students also compete in the events over a distance of 4850 ft. 

The beautiful scenery of the race area together with the exciting snake-boat race, will ever remain a cherished memory for the onlookers. 

Alleppy, the land of lakes, lagoons and water courses, have had a prestigious and prosperous past. That is the reason why it earned the sobriquet, the Venice of the East.
