This study has been undertaken to investigate the diversity of algae in freshwater pond ecosystems associated with the traditional ponds of two famous temples from Irikkur block (Thaliparamba taluk) of Kannur district of Kerala state in India. Sample collection was done in post monsoon and pre monsoon seasons in 2018-2019. Both ponds under investigation showed rich algal diversity and the water parameters showed slight variation.
