A popular spiritual site, Kallara is noted for its ancient temples and quaint churches. The main attraction is Sree Sarada Temple, dedicated to Goddess Saraswathi, the goddess of knowledge. The idol of Goddess Saraswati is said to have been installed by Kerala's famous social reformer, Sree Narayana Guru. The temple draws huge footfalls during a six-day-long festival celebrated in the month of January every year. The backwaters of Ezhumanthruruth are another attraction that can be explored by taking a ride in traditional cargo boats called kettuvallams and witnessing the majestic beauty of the place while cruising through crisscrossing canals. The waterways were earlier used to transport goods from Alappuzha to Kaduthututhy and now connect Kallara with other important tourist places like Kumarakom. Many private tour operators are available to take you through the tranquil water bodies of Kallara.

Kallara is located at a distance of 134 km from Kumarakom and makes for a brilliant one-day excursion.
