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.

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.

Ankita, USA
Namaste, This painting was delivered a little while ago. The entire package was soaking wet inside and out. But because of the extra special care you took to protect it, the painting itself is not damaged. It is beautiful, and I am very happy to have it. But all is well now, and I am relieved. Thank you!
Janice, USA
I am writing to convey my gratitude in the service that you have provided me. We received the painting of the 10 gurus by Anup Gomay on the 2nd January 2019 and the painting was packaged very well. I am happy to say that the recipient of the gift was very very happy! The painting is truly stunning and spectacular in real life! Thank you once again for all your help that you provided.
Mrs. Prabha, United Kingdom
I am writing to relay my compliments of the excellent services provided by exoticindia. The books are in great condition! I was not expecting a speedy delivery. Will definitely return to order more books.
Dr. Jamuna, New Zealand
I just received my powder pink wool shawl. It is beautiful. I bought it to wear over my dress at my son's wedding this coming Spring & it will be perfect if it's chilly in the garden. The package came very promptly & I couldn't be more pleased.
Pamela, Canada
I very much appreciate the tailoring service you offer. Many friends are delighted to see my last purchase. Hopefully more customers will contact you soon.
