It is a destination spot, with a mix of wonder, amazement, respect, reverence, culture, nature & religion. If you are looking to unravel fascinating facts, about a place, about its culture, people and living, then nothing beats Majuli Island. It is the largest river Island in the world I suppose. The island has a Vaishnavite cult so visiting during Janmashtami is sure to be a visual treat.”

Next to the shore line are the "fringing reefs" where fish species of fin and shell fishes spawn, and are found in abundance. As of 1986 there were 45 coral species in the reef. HolidayIQ Traveller Sahdev shares, “Kadmat is one of the Islands of Lakshadweep. The water is crystal clear.. you can see the fishes and the sea floor almost 30 feet deep. Best place just to relax. But not a good place to stay for days to gather since the facility for stay is not so amazing.”
