Kerala, acclaimed by the National Geographic Traveler as "one of the must-see destinations of a lifetime," is a tiny strip of land cocooned by the Arabian Sea on the West and the towering Western Ghats (Mountain ranges) in the East. Renowned for its round-the-year salubrious climate, wildlife sanctuaries, spices, rivers, backwaters and pristine beaches Kerala still has many surprisingly pleasant experiences in store. Varkala is a quaint little fishing hamlet, just 50 km. from Thiruvananthapuram International Airport (Capital city). Along the rocky shoreline of Varkala are a couple of coves with many a virgin sandy beach. The Thiruvambady Beach with its exotic silvery black sand is the all-time favorite. Krishnatheeram is perched on the rock formation cliff hugging the Thiruvambady Beach. Spread over half-an-acre of prime land this tastefully laid out spanking new resort with an ethnic architecture is indeed a warm and welcoming sight for sore eyes.The contours of the land and the coconut palms have been judiciously left intact with a marvelous open-air restaurant overlooking the beach and offering stunning view of endless sunsets setting the horizon ablaze every evening.
Ayurveda- the grand old legacy of Kerala.
Ayurveda is an age old wisdom...part of Indias great heritage. The people behind it were ancient saints or rishis, who researched on various permutation and combinations of medicinal plants to achieve the desired result. It is said that Ayurveda had the power to give life to an almost dead person, while the word Ayurveda itself means "knowledge of Life".More than 5000 years old, this unique branch of medicine has curative & restorative powers. Ayurveda is a natural healing system and is based on a holistic approach. Keralas moist deciduous forest rich in medicinal plants and herbs has made this state the real home of Ayurveda.
