“God’s own country” the oft-used phrase to describe Kerala is also used for multiple places such as New Zealand, United States, Australia and Surrey. However, Kerala is the only place that was, literally, created by God. Brimming with natural beauty, Kerala is indeed a truly magical place. Meandering rivers, serene backwaters, palm-fringed beaches and gorgeous coconut groves – all add to the charm of this captivating state of India. The pristine Arabian Sea waters and the lush green Western Ghats make us wonder if Gods had actually chosen this paradise as their own. That’s not all; Kerala offers umpteen reasons to fall in love with this “God’s Own Country”.
The story of its creation is as interesting as the place itself. According to the Hindu mythology, this stunning place came into existence when the incarnation of Lord Vishnu, Parasurama, threw his axe at the Arabian sea. This action formed a countryside that is neither all land nor all water. Enchanting, right?
