|Primary outflows||Thrissur Kole Wetlands|
In older days, Vanchikulam was linked with canals and backwaters of Thrissur District and Ernakulam District. It was a big trading hub where goods and people were transported to different parts of the state like Kochi and Alappuzha and to the nearby ports. After the advent of Shoranur–Cochin Harbour section railway line, the backwaters lost the glory. Vanchikulam used to house warehouses in older days.
