Ashtamudi Lake (Malayalam: അഷ്ടമുടിക്കായൽ, Ashtamudi Kayal) in the Kollam District of Kerala, India, is the second largest and deepest wetland ecosystem, a palm-shaped (also called octopus-shaped) large water body, next only to the estuary ecosystem of the state. Ashtamudi means "eight coned" (Ashta = 'eight'; mudi = 'coned') in . This name is indicative of the lake's topography: a lake with multiple branches. The lake is also called the gateway to the Backwaters of Kerala. 8°59′0″N 76°36′0″E / 8.983333°N 76.6°E / 8.983333; 76.6
