<< Kerala Monsoon Tourism

Like the rest of the places in Kerala, Kottayam is also a treasure house of natural beauty and cultural heritage. People visiting the place have been overwhelmed with its pristine beauty that invariably inspires them to pen a few words of praise even though they are otherwise loathe to writing. The nearby Vembanad Lake which is the most exciting backwater destination in Kerala, draws its name from the early name of Kottayam, Vempolinad.The monsoon backwater cruise around Kottayam is truly exhilarating.

As for the attractions within and close to Kottayam, there are many to catch your attention. Among them, religious places are in plenty, so if you have a religious bent of mind, you sure do know now where to head in Kerala. Additionally, the backwaters of Vembanad are a real gem for the lovers of nature especially during the monsoons. As you move slowly soaking in the beauties of nature around you, you will feel a sense of disgust at the way modernisation has changed the face of the world outside.

For those who are more interested in shopping around, Kottayam offers a good number of options. However, clothes and jewellery are what you should look for to buy since they are the chief draws of this place.But then, shop-hopping in the monsoon showers can be really frustrating. And before we forget, lets also make a mention of the distinct Kottayam cuisine that is inspired heavily by the Syrian Christian population. Try out a number of dishes, or rather the signature dishes of Kottayam and give your taste buds a flavour of a different kind. Non vegetarian food buffs are going to have a good time eating here.
