Kerala's Coastal Kingdoms
From Kochi to Thiruvananthapuram, Anil Mulchandani takes you on a coastal tour through South Kerala.
Travelling along the coast of Kerala is an extremely enjoyable experience in itself – stunning views of the Arabian seacoast, beautiful beaches, breathtakingly beautiful backwaters, and lush groves, plantations and paddy fields that can be seen from the highways connecting the cities of Kerala. But, Kerala is not just about beautiful scenery – it also has many places of historical, architectural, artistic and cultural importance.
Thiruvananthapuram, well-known as Trivandrum, is a city of remarkable contrasts. Its heart is traditional and contains the Padmanabhaswamy Temple, but there are also old British colonial areas where you find Kerala's most fascinating museums, a large zoological park, churches and British public buildings.
