Twin Village of India – Kodinhi

What’s up!
Well Well well, it’s been 5 months of no travel. Thanks to this lockdown! But I strongly believe, it all will get sorted someday! Things will be fine. And I, we all would be able to travel again.

Meanwhile, I thought, why not spend this home quarantine doing some research and plan future travel.

This is the 1st Blog in that direction. I am preparing a list of places that I wish to visit and document everything around that.

The famous Twin Village of India – Kodinhi caught my attention!

Kodinhi is a village in Malappuram district in Kerala, India. The village is situated close to the town of Tirurangadi and, as of 2008, is home to around 2,000 families. 

For every 1,000 births in Kodinhi, 45 are twins. Compared to the rest of India where the twin birth rate is 4 out of every 1,000. Local doctor and twin enthusiast Dr. Krishnan Sribiju has been studying the medical marvel of Kodinhi for the years now.

Although 220 sets of twins have been officially registered in the village Dr. Sribiju believes the real number to be far higher. The genetic, biological, molecular, hereditary, and climatic factors of the puzzling phenomena are the subject matter of the research on the multiple births at Kodinhi. 

Few researchers stated that “Tapioca” is the reason for all these twins births

How to Reach (from Bangalore), 380 km:

By Air: Bangalore to Kozhikode, then take a cab till Kodinhi
