Detailed Information About Kerala And its History


Top post on IndiBlogger, the biggest community of Indian Bloggers

As we all know Kerala is called ‘The God’s own country’. It is an enchanting and beautiful land, surrounded by the western ghats on one side, the Arabian sea on the other. Kerala is the land of ‘kera’ called as coconut. Kerala has its own traditions and culture.  Most tourists attracted places are beaches, hill stations, backwaters, bird and wildlife sanctuary etc.
Kerala is also one of the richest states in India with forests and plantations of rubber, cashew, and coconuts. It has a rich heritage of dance and drama like Kathakali, koothu, mohiniattam, etc. People here are very industrious and have the highest rate of literacy.
The mother tongue of Kerala is Malayalam and the people here are called as Malayalees. It is believed that Parasurama is the creator of Kerala. He converted a portion of the sea into land by throwing his axe.
This place has become one of the best tourist places nowadays. People all over the country wish to visit Kerala at least once to experience its divine beauty. Even I visited Kerala to enjoy during vacations with my family. Here is a list of the places I visited.

1. St. ANGELO FORT

 St. Angelo is a fort facing the Arabian Sea. It is situated  3 km from Kannur, a city in Kerala state.  It was built in 1505 by Dom Francisco de Almeida, he was the first viceroy of India. The Dutch captured the fort from the Portuguese in 1663. They modernized the fort. St. Angelo’ s fort is a most important and historical monument and also a very popular tourist attraction of Kerala.

Six tourism policeman are posted for the protection duty. The fort has very spacious interiors. It also has decorative plants and a watchtower in it. The cliff-like end of the fort gives the amazing view of entire Kerala. It also has gravestone of Dutch commandments wide and two children with Dutch inscriptions. It has the remains of the early oil lamp lighthouse. It has the stairway which leads to the top of the fort wall.

St. ANGELO FORT

It is overall a very ancient and beautiful fort to watch during a visit to Kerala. The most important part of Fort St Angelo is Old prison and jails where the prisoners used to be mentally tortured. The fort top view has a beach view which is quite beautiful.

2. MUZHAPHILANGAD BEACH KERALA

It is a beach in the southwestern part of Kerala. It is located parallel to national highway 66 between Thalassery and Kannur. This beach is 5″5 km long and it is the only drive in the beach of Kerala where people can use their 2 wheeler and 4 wheeler vehicles for a drive. We got to do cot bike ride.

MUZHAPHILANGAD BEACH KERALA

There are single seater or double seater cot bike ride. On a drive to this beach, you come across examples of Malabar cuisine in the shacks. It has shallow waters and is a swimmers paradise as the black rocks protect the beach from deep currents. This beach also has several water sports like paragliding, parasailing, and microlite flights but we couldn’t get a chance to do all.

There are also power boating and a catamaran ride there. It is the most wonderful beach of Kerala and is also a must visit one and shore of this beach has lots of starfishes, shells, crabs.

3. WINDFLOWER  RESORTS AND SPA VAITHRI  WYANAD

The mystic quality of mountains and an awesome view of the hills has inspired many newly married couples to visit and have a long stay at this hill station in wyanad, Kerala. This Resort gives you lot of positive vibes when you enter.  This hill station has ‘The Windflower Resort and Spa’, which people prefer to stay.
