Kerala - the God's Own Country

Kerala, a state located at the southern end of India, has various tourist destinations. Kerala is so beautiful that it is being called as God's own country.

Kerala has pleasant climate throughout the year, and provides various destination options for travellers such as beaches, pilgrimages, resorts, hill stations, back waters and wild life sanctuaries. Due to its moderate climate throughout the year, and various festivals celebrated, travellers keep travelling to Kerala throughout the year.

Kumarakom, Kuttanad, Alapuzha, and Kochi are some of the most important backwater destinations of Kerala. The beaches like Kovalam are world famous. Mannar, Ponmudi, .... there are lot of hill stations in the state. And, when it comes to pilgrim centers, I am not sure if any other state in India except Tamil Nadu has so many pilgrim centers. Some of the religiously important sites located in Kerala are Sabari Malai, Guruvayur, Thrissur, Chottanikkarai, Varkala, Vaikom, and Kaladi.

Whatever be your travel objective, and whatever month you want to travel, Kerala would definitely be an ideal destination for you.

I admit that I haven't completely explored Kerala yet. I am going to write about the places that I have visited so far in Kerala. You cannot find photographs for some places, as photography is strictly prohibited in Kerala temples.

Happy travelling.
