Kerala

Kerala is located on the south-western region of India.It is by Karnataka to the north, Tamil Nadu to the south and the east and the Lakshadweep Sea towards the west. On the southwestern coast of India, almost affecting the tip of the peninsula, Kerala inhabites the region known as the Malabar Coast. It is surrounded by the south Indian states of Tamil Nadu and Karnataka. Kerala is like a narrow strip of land lying between the Arabian Sea to the west and the hill ranges called Western Ghats. This geography defines Kerala's main identity as a green, rain-rich state filled with inland water bodies.

The rain-laden southwest monsoon comes across the Arabian Sea to hit Kerala around 1st June, and expends much of its waters here. More than 40 rivers flow down the Western Ghats to meet the Arabian Sea forming, with the backwash of the sea, a complex of canals and lakes called the Kerala Backwaters. This combined package of beaches, backwaters and greenery is what the tourism department promotes as 'Gods Own Country', making tourism one of Kerala's main businesses.
