Description
Back of the Book

Inside- Cities, Backwaters, Midlands, The Hills, River Nila, Coastal Circuit, Resources & Maps…

The unique charm of the labyrinthine backwaters, a stunning coastline dotted with gently swaying palm trees, bustling cities, little towns steeped in colonial history, emerald hills, pristine islands, and lush jungles — Kerala has all this and more. Set off on the journey of a lifetime to God’s Own Country with the help of this easy to use, informative guidebook.

More than 30 maps (city, destination, district, circuit and State) provide detailed information on every region in Kerala, from the cities to the remoter locations.

Art and culture, food and drink, colourful markets and tiny villages. Ayurveda and wildlife sanctuaries, pilgrimage centres and luxury resorts, Kathakali and martial arts — this hook provides a glimpse into Kerala in all its fascinating diversity.

Take a peek into the past with our interesting section on the State’s history.

From the Jacket

When people speak of Kerala as the destination of a lifetime, it is hardly an exaggeration for it is one of those places which, like an intricately worked tapestry, you gradually grow to appreciate. There are so many things to discover here that you wonder how such a small geographical area could hold such varied attractions — a fascinating history, rich culture, interesting customs, unique architecture, a well- entrenched alternative system of health, superlative food, powerful art forms, and a literate and highly opinionated people, who inhabit a society where tradition and modernity co—exist effortlessly.

Maps & More — Kerala
You will find this book indispensable for a journey into this delightful land. Apart from a wealth of information within its pages, you’ll find innovative maps covering every region in the State from cities and districts to destinations and circuits.

The best and fastest service worldwide - I am in Australia and I put in a big order of books (14 items) on a Wednesday; it was sent on Friday and arrived at my doorstep early on Monday morning - amazing! All very securely packed in a very strong cardboard box. I have bought several times from Exotic India and the service is always exceptionally good. THANK YOU and NAMASTE!

I just wanted to say that this is I think my 3rd (big) order from you, and the last two times I received immaculate service, the books arrived well and it has been a very pleasant experience. Just wanted to say thanks for your efficient service.

Artwork received today. Very pleased both with the product quality and speed of delivery. Many thanks for your help.
Carl, UK.
I wanted to let you know how happy we are with our framed pieces of Shree Durga and Shree Kali. Thank you and thank your framers for us. By the way, this month we offered a Puja and Yagna to the Ardhanarishwara murti we purchased from you last November. The Brahmin priest, Shree Vivek Godbol, who was visiting LA preformed the rites. He really loved our murti and thought it very paka. I am so happy to have found your site , it is very paka and trustworthy. Plus such great packing and quick shipping. Thanks for your service Vipin, it is a pleasure.
Gina, USA
My marble statue of Durga arrived today in perfect condition, it's such a beautiful statue. Thanks again for giving me a discount on it, I'm always very pleased with the items I order from you. You always have the best quality items.
