The National Geographicexternal link magazine has named Kerala as one of the ten Paradises Found in the world!

The Kerala State Tourism Departmentexternal link has rightly named our state The God's Own Country. Kerala means the land of coconuts. And boy! we do have coconuts, arecanuts and also nuts like me in abundance!

The state is gifted with greenery and water. There are lot of tourist spots. Kovalam is a well known beach; Thekkady is equally known for its wild life. For people who love silence, we've Silent Valley, which is the only forest where the insects don't make any sound. Want to be still closer to nature? Well, we've Wynad and Munnar in the Western Ghats.Or you prefer sea to mountains? Travel along the west coast of Kerala. Or just take a train ride from Kasargode to Trivandrum. If you can keep the count of bridges you cross, you don't have to worry about your memory power.

The language we use is Malayalam. If you speak English, you won't have any problem in Kerala. Many people speak Hindi and Tamil also. As the subject of quite a lot of jokes, you may find the pronounciation a bit hilarious. But that is quite common in any part of India! Our traditional dress is Mundu for men and a slightly longer version of the same for women. Now a days, it is very difficult to see such costumes. The changing times have resulted in people switching over to more easy to use stuff! Do visit our state. We are only too happy to welcome you.
