Another Boundless Family Journey To The South Of Kerala.

The family is one bond that keeps anything and everything happy in life and that is one major reason that I have always preferred my family over friends. travelling along with them have to date been best experiences as well. The school holidays had kicked in and this time I had a new beginning in front of me as school life was over and it was time that I go across the sea for my graduate studies which made this trip much more special to me. We had a lot of plans in the initial days but nothing got confirmed until the last moment where the dad finally decided that we could set off to Kerala on a tour package for a change as we always took international tours and get to know what was it that the place had in order to gain it the name 'Gods own country'. Everything was booked through Go-Geo Holidays and all that had to be done was pack the bag and set off to the destination. We were bound to reach Trivandrum where my mom first wanted all of us to visit a major temple and proceed with the touring part. As we landed at the international airport we decided to freshen up first and visit the Shri Padmanabhaswamy temple. There was special attire that was to be followed in case we wanted to enter the temple which indeed had been locked out by mom. 

The temple had a special aura that would make anyone stay there for one minute more than planned. We got a good darshan as it had been early in the morning. The main deity of the temple is Lord Vishnu while there are also other deities inside. The temple also had a great architectural design which had been taking us around the whole place. I wondered where the treasure of the temple remained as per everything that I had read in google regarding the temple. Once we were done we proceeded to the hotel and changed. After breakfast, we decided to visit the first place on our itinerary which was the Ponmudi Hill. The golden hill wagon a famous factor of Trivandrum where we took a drive to the point where we could and then proceeded in a jeep that took us to another point. A small amount of walk took us to the top which was from where the beauty of the mountain ranges of Western Ghats had been visualized. The greenery was one magic spell of Kerala that made us feel fresh and energetic at the same time. Once we had spent quite some time at the destination we decided to proceed further where the next destination was to the Mini Zoo that’s located around itself. The place had something that we had never seen where the Barasinghas lept around which was again one adorning factor of the place. Several other animals had also been around which pretty much seemed to be our special place as all of us in the family were great fans of animals except for the fact that we hated any sort of bars that restricted them. 

It was time for lunch and what we had been served was what made an impact in all our minds that Kerala had good cuisines as well. The driver had also been with us where he introduced us to the Sadhya where arrays of vegetarian dishes were served on our banana leaf and rice was served with Sambhar. And to be honest it was one heck of an experience for a delicious platter of food with various tastes had been there. And the next was where we had been served with some non-vegetarian delights as there again the driver said that Kerala was blessed various food items that they wanted us to lump on everything that was good. And that was it for the lunch where we ended it on a high note with coconut pudding. The journey continued and took us to Kovalam which was our stop for the day as we had our night stay arranged here. The sea view was all we wanted and hence after taking some time of rest, we got to the beach having some super fun family time. A couple of activities had been going on there and we decide to be flying kites that were being sold there.  The widespread beach was more like a private beach where there had been a lot of people but you still had your privacy at the place. All of us also went on a speedboat expedition to the beach where that was it for the day.

The next day  sightseeing continued where we were taken to Veli tourist village. The place had been made in with a lot of efforts that they had a lot of recreation in it. We walked along the walkway and went to the little shops and also took another boating journey but this time on pedal boats. After getting back we wanted to eat something and yet again we fell for the food where we were served with little snacks like banana fritters and dal vada. In around two hours of time, we left for the Vizhinjam Lighthouse. The walk along the lighthouse was yet another beautiful choice we had made for the view of the land that we had received there was all that made a reassurance in the mind that this place was indeed a gem of a place to visit. The Kanakkakunnu Palace was the final place for our visit after lunch where we got to see the ancient speck of what Kerala had witnessed in the past.  The architecture of the palace and the royal furniture inside it was what proved it to us. The meadows and lush green garden also adorned the place equally. we took some good family pictures from the place as the background was very impressive. The return was bound where we had had an amazing Kerala tour package for our family. For one year, we could move forth with the memories that had been departed by an amazing trip like that of what we had got from Kerala.

Kerala is one of the smallest states in India which covers almost 1.3 percent of the total area of the country and is flanked by Karnataka in the north and Tamil Nadu in the east, Kerala is an enchanting strip of land ensconced between the Arabian Sea and the western ghats. Based on the physical feature the state can be divided into three natural divisions namely - the sandy coastal region with its extensive coconut groves, paddy fields, backwaters and sea, the Midland region made up of fertile reddish hills and valleys that grow most of Kerala's agricultural crops, peaks, extensive ridges and ravines of the western ghats, where sandalwood, tea, coffee, rubber and most of Kerala's exotic spices are grown.
 The western ghats which form a solid, contiguous mountain wall, seem to dominate the topography of Kerala. The major hill station is Munnar where thousands of tourists visit after picking the best Kerala tour packages and indulge in sightseeing and adventurous activities who are guided by travel advisers like Gogeo holidays. The topography is well suited for the tea plantation and is one of the major industry flourishing in Kerala. The hill stations have played a major role in Kerala tourism. To escape from summer pressure, Kerala houses the place of natural air conditioning, Munnar 1600 meters above sea level. This beautiful hill station was once the summer resort of the British government in the south and is situated at the confluence of three rivers hence the name. 
The 2695 metre high Anamudi peak here is the highest point in South India. To ensure a steady rainfall, The ghats act as a natural barrier during the south-west monsoon. More than 40 rivers spring from the mountains and taking a roundabout route, they either join the backwaters and lagoons or directly merge with the sea.

Kerala's progressive economy is mainly agro-based. Widely spread rubber plantations on the foothills of the western ghats and the cashew factories of Kollam are the main valuable foreign exchange earners. the coir products and handicrafts from Alleppey are received well both in India and abroad. The land itself is believed to have derived its name from "Keram" the coconut palm. The two main crown jewels of Kerala is backwater and Ayurveda. Backwaters are the most eminent and unique feature of tourism in Kerala where tourists with top Kerala holiday packages visits to have a day in the houseboat.

Kerala's climate is always pointed to the medium level of tolerance which is like a balmy weather almost all through the year and it is neither too cold in winter months nor too hot in summer. Kerala must be visited during is November-February when the air is bracing, and on some mornings there is a light mist. Light woollens may be required in the hills in the evenings and early mornings. March-may is warmer months and September-October is the time when the flowers are out and nature is at her best. Mid-may to August is the monsoon period, and one can expect a wet time. In addition, June is also a windy month.

Many great epic stories like Mahabharata and Ramayana shares its pages of episodes in Kerala also which are the reason of cultural importance in Kerala. Like most parts of India, Kerala's climate is also tropical and since Kerala has close proximity to the sea, the temperature of Kerala stays equable for most parts of the year. the state does not have a continuous dry spell and the summer lasts from April to June. Summer seasons are best for opting Munnar honeymoon packages at low price and this is the best time for trekking activities as the slippery natures of the mountains will be affordable to some extent. Maximum temperature remains around 32-degree centigrade and Kerala receives most of the rain from the monsoons, which touch the state in June and remain there until September. Besides the south-west monsoons, Kerala also receives rain from Northeastern monsoons. Winter season in Kerala begins from October and lasts until January and there are chances for the temperature to drop a bit but the weather is never too chilly in Kerala. In winter, the average temperature in Kerala remains around 21-degree Celsius and the presence of the Western Ghats on the eastern side of the state and across an important climatic zone is created by south-west monsoon with abundant rainfall on the windward side and on the eastern side, a dry belt is created.

The Kerala's fine blending and enrichment of life and culture were the result of the early settlements of Jews, Syrians and Portuguese in Kerala. Visited twice by the early yearly monsoon, Kerala is one of the most beautiful states in India and is a tropical paradise of waving palms and white sandy beaches and filled with lush green vegetation in the mountain ghats.

I have been to some of the most famous museums here. They have an awesome collection of our Kerala sovereigns. Some other museums flaunt the object artefacts, ancient artistic works created by our famous artists, scientific researches founded or developed by renowned scientists, archaeological exhibits and other various objects of interest.

        Any on who reads the Soil museum, will gasp. Yes exactly, it is one of the rarest of its kinds. In India it is the first Soil museum that is established to meet the international standards.

Although it took several years to erect this building, it is now a well recognised land mark in the city with a gothic architectural style with minor works on walls and roofs. It sympathises tourists who are here in summer by its considerable services of A/C s fit in the whole museum. Priceless ornaments worn by the kings and princesses are on among the most beautiful cases here apart from the ivory carvings, bronze figures and a beautiful historic temple chariot used by the rajas. There are several archaeologically excavated artefacts and chunks from early ages. The outer area of this museum adorns a Zoological garden, admired by whoever coming to this palace. Spending some of your quality time at the garden will make you feel at peace and calm.

Sree Chitra Gallery

Sree chitra is an exclusive part of Napier museum. Since its displays are so eminent among sightseers, it is known by its name and not as a part of the Napier museum. The gallery enriches mural paintings of famous rajas of Kerala and other such famed officials and monarchs. The paintings of Raja Ravi Varma and Nicholas Roerich are among the well recognised paintings here. The display homes a group of paintings from Rajput times, mughal rules, from China, Japan, Bali and Tibet. To the amusement of trippers, our great raja Ravi Varma was an awesome artist himself, thus the Napier museum is crowded all the day with guests from everywhere to see the art works of this king. This gallery really paints our present to the historic period on our visit there.
