Graced by the Arabian Sea on the west, the Western Ghats on the east and networked by forty-four rivers, Kerala lies on the southern tip of the Indian peninsula. One of the most preferred destinations in the world, Kerala attracted the notice of people from other parts of the world from time immemorial. It is evident from the many reference to the land of ancient Sanskrit and classical works of Greece and Rome. Kerala is the ideal place to visit during your tour to South India.
The ancient history of Kerala is shrouded in the mists of tradition. The most popular legend would have it that the land crust that forms the state was raised from the depths of the ocean by Parasurama, the Brahmin avatar (incarnation) of Lord Vishnu and hence the sobriquet - "God's own Country". Thus during your tour to Kerala you get an opportunity to be a part of this culturally rich country.
Today, Kerala is one of the best-known tour destinations in the world tourism map. From mind-blowing landscapes to infinite intriguing customs, high-intensity cultural life to the educated public, holidays and tour in Kerala is a unique experience in itself. It's an India where you still have an almost tangible sense that little has changed since the time of the British Raj, where the ghosts still echo around the decaying churches and graveyards and where, apart from the bustling ports, there seems scarcely any industry, few commercial establishments.
One gets to experience the tranquil stretches of emerald backwaters of Kerala, lush hill stations, exotic wildlife, Ayurveda health resorts, enchanting art forms, magical festivals, historic and cultural monuments, exotic cuisine and singularly beautiful people during ones tour to this lovely state. It is no wonder that this little coastal state on the southwestern tip of India has won national and international acclaim as much for its diversity as for the uniqueness of each attraction.
