According to sources, this village has around 204 pairs of twins with 2000 people. An approx of 10% of the town’s population are twins. To state more clearly, with every 1000 births, Kodinhi receives 45 twins.

Many researchers tried to find the cause of this phenomenon, but couldn’t reach its roots. In 2016, from various institutions, a joint team of researchers including CSIR- Centre for Cellular and Molecular Biology, Hyderabad, Kerala University of Fisheries and Ocean Studies (KUFOS) and University of London and Germany toured the town to uncover answers to this phenomenon.

Samples like saliva and hairs were collected by the researchers from the twins to study their DNA. Many said that the phenomenon is genetic or can be a cause of a particular element in the air or water

Though it is not a recent happening, but since 1949, according to the villagers. Men and Women who marry other villagers are also reported with high rates of twin births.

This remote tropical village has become a mystery for all that every researcher wants to unravel.
