Beaches, backwaters, wildlife, waterfalls, world class health and Ayurveda resorts, tea gardens and spice plantations, ancient rituals and colorful festivals - Kerala has been blessed with it all. Welcome To Kerala! Fringed by rolling hills on the east and the Arabian Sea on the west, lies this amazingly beautiful state in Southern India called Kerala - the land of green magic, a narrow, fertile strip on the South-West coast of India, sandwiched between the Lakshwadeep Sea and the Western Ghats mountains.

Blessed with unique geographical and cultural features, its overpowering tropical greenness with 41 rivers and countless waterways, fed by two annual monsoons, intoxicates every newcomer. Equally, Kerala's arcane rituals and spectacular festivals stimulate even the most jaded imagination, continuing centuries of tradition that has never strayed far from the realms of magic. No wonder it is also called "God's Own Country".
