Introduction
Kerala is a state in South India, occupying a narrow strip of India's southwestern coast. Referred to as Keralam by the natives of the state, it is known for being the most literate state in India, with a literacy rate greater than 90% Kerala is a popular tourist destination for both domestic and foreign travellers. Among the tourist attractions are great beaches (Kovalam and Varkala), serene hill stations (Ponmudi and Munnar), wildlife sanctuaries (Periyar and Eravikulam) and beautiful Kerala Backwaters (Kumarakom and Punnamada), as also the marvel of kerala building art revealed through Padmanabhapuram Palace, Padmanabhapuram. The tourism department of the state calls the state as God's Own Country. National Geographic Society described Kerala as one of the 50 must-see destinations of a lifetime. Kochi, the commercial capital of the state is known as the Queen of the Arabian Sea. Alapuzha, the first planned town in Kerala is called the Venice of the East. Tourism plays an important role in the state's economy.Kerala is bounded by the Arabian Sea on the west and the Western Ghats on the east. The states of Karnataka in the north and Tamil Nadu in the east are Kerala's immediate neighbours. Mahe, a part of the union territory of Pondicherry, is an enclave within Kerala.

Geographically Kerala is divided into three regions:

Highland or Mountain region
Midland or the rolling hills
Lowland or the coastal plain land
There are 44 rivers flowing through Kerala, most of them are small and entirely fed by the Monsoons. The Kerala Backwaters, an interconnected system of brackish water lakes and river estuaries, lies behind the coast and runs virtually the length of the state.

We have the famous Pooram festival which is a unique display of elephants and fireworks. Kerala is lushgreen, highly literate and politically conscious, secular in its attitudes, blessed with scenic beauty and cultural heritage and richness.
