PostSubject: Pictural Sights of Kerala   Mon Jul 09, 2007 6:15 am

With the Arabian Sea on the west and a vast network of lakes, lagoons and rivers crisscrossing it, Alappuzha is a district of immense natural beauty. Referred to as ‘The Venice of the East’ by travelers from across the world, this backwaters country is also home to diverse animal and bird life.
By virtue of its proximity to the sea, the town has always enjoyed a unique place in the maritime history of Kerala. Today, Alappuzha has grown in importance as a backwater tourist center, attracting several thousands of foreign tourists each year.
Alappuzha is one of the major centers for backwater boat trips during a Kerala Tourism. Alappuzha is also famous for its houseboat holidays, beaches, marine products and coir industry. A singular characteristic of this land is the region called Kuttanad.
Kuttanad, called the rice bowl of Kerala because of her wealth of paddy crops is at the heart of the backwaters. The scenic countryside of Kuttanad with its shimmering waterways also has a rich crop of bananas, yams and cassava, which accompany the rice bowl as "side dishes". This is one of the places in the world where farming is done below sea level. Inland waterways that flow above land level are an amazing feature of this unique land.
