Vasco Da Gama's arrival was just the culmination of the western world's rush to find the sea route to the Indies and its spices trade. Being the original land of spice, the food here is varied between Hindu, Muslim and Christian cultures. It’s a heaven for vegetarians with dishes like veg thali (an array of mixed veg and lentil dishes) served on the banana

leaf costing equivalent to a bottle of coke here. Not only is it good value but indeed very tasty and satisfying.

Kerala is a blend of Dravidian and Aryan culture. The incongruent mixture of colour, costume, cadences, tunes and words often take the audience out of this world. Theyyam, Kathakali, Ottanthullal, Koodiyattam, Chakiarkoothu, Pathakam, Chavittunatakam are important art forms of Kerala. All these primordial performances involve exotic costumes and strange settings and patterns dealing with the subjects of great epics.

While in Kerala, rejuvenate your body and mind with Ayurveda, the science of life. The ancient Indian system of medicine based on a holistic approach rooted in Vedic culture Ayurveda means knowledge of life. This holistic science is the knowledge of complete balance of the body, mind and spirit, including the emotion and psychology on all levels. The use of heated oil and herbs triggers the body’s natural healing process, softens the skin and brings deep relaxation and peace of mind. Come to Kerala and get rejuvenate....
