True to its popular name, ‘God’s Own Country’, the state of Kerala is a treasure chest of natural wonders, man-made feats and vibrant culture. It is believed that the land, which is now Kerala, rose from the sea when Parasurama, the sixth incarnation of Lord Vishnu, threw his axe in the waters. Blessed with lush hills and sandy beaches, the state can be best explored with Yatra’s Kerala tour packages. While on a vacation to this splendid destination, you get ample opportunities to admire nature and relax. Kerala is also famed for its architecturally unique temples, among which Rajarajeswara, Padmanabhaswamy, Bathery Jain, Alathiyur Hanuman and Aranmula Parthasarathy temples are the most famous ones. Apart from these, Kerala holiday packages mostly include a visit to revered churches, grand forts, informative museums and opulent palaces. The local culture is something that everyone should indulge in at least once. Folk dances like Kathakali, Mohiniyattam and Koodiyattam all originated here, and witnessing their performances will certainly delight all. Attending the colourful and energetic Snake Boat Race during the harvest festival of Onam, and watching a traditional Kalaripayattu duel will take the holiday experience to another level. Another good way to bask in the Malayali culture during family tours is tasting their local dishes.
