Kerala has many faces and names. Some call it as the ‘Land of Coconuts’… and some “Land of Spices” while some call it ‘Land of Elephants’! It is indeed incredible with its unique geographic features, rich cultural tradition and history…

But then nothing is perfect. Kerala has its own share of negatives and drawbacks. That’s part of the parcel!

In this post we are going to feel and expereince the real Kerala through these awesome travel photos.
