Exotic beaches, beautiful landscape, serene mountains, peaceful backwaters, vibrant culture - Kerala is truly God's own country!

Kerala conjures up images that even a wizard would find hard to match. A tiny state in South India, Kerala has become a dominant player in the tourism sector. Word of Kerala’s exotic beauty and languid charm has reached the farthest corners of the world and tourists from far and near, from different cultures and religions, come together in Kerala to celebrate the colours of mother nature.

So, why is Kerala such a sought after destination? The best thing about Kerala is that you could ask for the sky here and you would not be refused! You can ask for the most beautiful beaches, you can ask for the most poetic hill stations, you can ask for the most pristine backwaters – and you will get them all in Kerala.

While some might like to spend a major time of their holiday on one of the beautiful beaches of Kovalam or Kozhikode, others might prefer spending their time in the serenity of beautiful hill stations like Munnar and Thekkady. Cochin, the capital city of Kerala, is a city steeped in ancient history and vibrant culture. The colonial landmarks draw a lot of attention from tourists, as do the buzzing markets of Cochin.

Languid and calm, the backwaters of Kerala are definitely a must visit. The backwaters in Cochin, Kumarakom, and Alapuzzha see a generous flow of tourists throughout the year. The houseboats on the backwaters are floating vessels of peace and solitude and are much sought after by honeymoon couples. It is hard to imagine a more romantic setting than being on a floating boat in the serene backwaters of Kerala.

Apart from the usual tourist delights, Kerala is also home to some of the most sacred and religious places in India. The Guruvayur Sree Krishna Temple receives a huge number of devotees every year from all over the world. Another equally prominent and sacred temple is the Sabarimala Sree Ayyappa Temple. Kerala is a mix of sublime beaches, sanguine backwaters, peaceful hill stations, sacred temples, and an ever evolving culture. All of this makes Kerala what it is fondly called - God’s Own Country.
