KERALA

God's Own country

Kerala enjoys unique geographical features that have made it one of the most sought after tourist destinations in Asia. An equable climate. A long shoreline with serene beaches. Tranquil stretches of backwaters. Lush hill stations and exotic wildlife. Waterfalls. Sprawling plantations and paddy fields. Ayurvedic health holidays. Enchanting art forms. Magical festivals. Historic and cultural monuments, exotic cuisine... all of which offer you a unique experience.  Kerala, India's most advanced society, with one hundred percent literacy. World-class health care systems. India's lowest infant mortality and highest life expectancy rates. The highest physical quality of life in India. Peaceful and pristine, Kerala is India's cleanest State. In a mood of profound atonement, the sage heaved his mighty axes into the midst of the distant ocean. The waves foamed and frothed as a prawn-shaped land extending from Gokarnam to Kanyakumari surfaced from the depths of the sea to form the State and hence the sobriquet 'Gods Own Country'.

Kochi _ The  Queen Of Arabian Sea

Adorned by the enchanting charm of the Arabian Sea,Kochi Is The one of the ’50 Greatest Places to Visit in a Lifetime’ by National Geographic Traveler Magazine.

Once upon a time, nestled along the sun-kissed shores of the Arabian Sea, lay the enchanting city of Kochi, known far and wide as the Queen of the Arabian Sea. This historic port city, with its mesmerizing blend of cultures, cuisines, and landscapes, was a treasure trove waiting to be explored. In the heart of this vibrant city lived a young traveler named Anaya. Anaya had always been fascinated by tales of distant lands, and the stories she had heard about Kochi were especially captivating. From the bustling spice markets to the tranquil backwaters, Kochi promised a journey through time and tradition. Anaya decided it was time to experience the magic of Kochi for herself. She chose Christone Holidays, renowned for their bespoke travel experiences, to guide her on this adventure. As she stepped off the plane, the warm breeze carrying the scent of the sea greeted her, and she knew she was in for something special. Her journey began in Fort Kochi, a charming neighborhood where history whispered from every corner. With Christone Holidays' expert guide, Anaya strolled through narrow streets lined with colonial-era buildings. The St. Francis Church, one of the oldest European churches in India, stood as a testament to the city’s rich past. The guide recounted tales of Portuguese explorers and Dutch traders who had once walked these very streets. Next, Anaya visited the iconic Chinese fishing nets, their silhouettes gracefully dipping into the sea against the backdrop of a setting sun. She marveled at the skill and technique involved, a practice that had been passed down through generations. As she watched the fishermen at work, she felt a deep connection to the heritage of this ancient port city. Christone Holidays had arranged a special stay for Anaya in a heritage villa, where the sounds of the waves lulled her to sleep each night. The villa, with its traditional Kerala architecture and modern comforts, was a perfect blend of the old and the new. Each morning, Anaya woke up to the aroma of freshly brewed coffee and a delicious spread of local delicacies, including appam and stew, prepared by the villa’s chef. One of the highlights of her trip was a houseboat cruise through the serene backwaters of Alleppey, arranged meticulously by Christone Holidays. As the houseboat glided along the emerald waters, Anaya felt as though she had stepped into a different world. The lush greenery, quaint villages, and the sight of children waving from the riverbanks filled her heart with joy. The houseboat itself was a floating paradise, complete with a cozy bedroom, a deck for sunbathing, and a dining area where she savored freshly caught seafood. Anaya’s exploration of Kochi was not complete without experiencing its vibrant arts scene. Christone Holidays had secured tickets to a traditional Kathakali performance. The vivid costumes, expressive gestures, and the powerful storytelling left her spellbound. She also visited the Kerala Folklore Museum, where she learned about the diverse cultural heritage of Kerala through its vast collection of artifacts and exhibits. As her journey neared its end, Anaya reflected on the myriad experiences that Kochi had offered. It was a city where the past and present coexisted harmoniously, where every alley had a story to tell, and every smile was a warm welcome. Christone Holidays had not just shown her the sights; they had woven an intricate tapestry of memories that she would cherish forever. On her last evening in Kochi, Anaya stood by the sea, watching the twilight hues blend into the horizon. She felt a profound sense of gratitude for the journey she had undertaken. Kochi, the Queen of the Arabian Sea, had bestowed upon her the treasures of its soul, and Christone Holidays had been the perfect companion in this unforgettable adventure. As she boarded her flight back home, she knew that a part of her heart would always remain in this magical city.

St. Francis Church in Fort Kochi is one of the oldest European churches in India, steeped in rich history. Originally built in 1503 by Portuguese traders, it stands as a testament to the era of European exploration and colonization. The church was initially made of timber and later reconstructed using stone. It has witnessed various colonial powers, including the Dutch and the British, each leaving their mark. Notably, it housed the remains of the famed explorer Vasco da Gama for 14 years before they were moved to Portugal. Christone Holidays offers insightful guided tours of St. Francis Church, allowing visitors to delve into its storied past and appreciate its architectural splendor, making it an essential part of any historical exploration in Fort Kochi.

Originally a gift to the King of Cochin, it served as a royal residence and a symbol of the region's rich cultural heritage.

Village tour at Kumbalangi with Christone Holidays

In the quaint village of Kumbalangi, nestled along the serene backwaters of Kochi, life moved at a tranquil pace. The village was a picturesque tableau of lush paddy fields, swaying coconut palms, and traditional Chinese fishing nets silhouetted against the golden hues of the setting sun. Amidst this idyllic setting, Christone Holidays, was making a big impact. Run by the passionate and enthusiastic Anjali and her husband Rajesh, Christone Holidays specialized in providing authentic local experiences to tourists. Their mission was simple: to let visitors immerse themselves in the soul of Kumbalangi, far from the typical tourist trails. One bright morning, as the village awoke to the melody of chirping birds and the gentle lapping of water against the banks, Christone Holidays welcomed a group of travelers. Among them was a family from Mumbai—Naina, her husband Arjun, and their curious seven-year-old son, Aarav. Anjali greeted them with a warm smile. "Welcome to Kumbalangi," she said, handing each of them a fresh coconut to sip from. "Today, you'll experience the true essence of our village." Their first stop was a traditional Keralan homestead. As they entered, the earthy aroma of spices wafted through the air. Naina was delighted to see an elderly woman, Amma, demonstrating how to grind spices using a stone mill. Aarav, his eyes wide with curiosity, eagerly joined in. Later, Rajesh took them on a canoe ride through the narrow canals. The water was crystal clear, reflecting the vibrant green of the mangroves. "Look, Mama, a kingfisher!" Aarav exclaimed, pointing excitedly. Rajesh smiled, sharing stories of the local wildlife and the importance of preserving this fragile ecosystem. As the sun dipped lower in the sky, casting a warm glow over the village, the group arrived at a small island where a sumptuous feast awaited them. Traditional dishes like appam, fish curry, and payasam were served on banana leaves. The flavors were rich and varied, each bite telling a story of the region's rich culinary heritage. The evening concluded with a mesmerizing performance of Kathakali, the classical dance-drama of Kerala. Aarav was especially fascinated by the vibrant costumes and dramatic expressions of the performers. Anjali explained the tales being depicted, enriching the experience for everyone. As they bid farewell to Kumbalangi, Naina felt a deep sense of gratitude. "This has been more than just a holiday," she said to Anjali and Rajesh. "It feels like we've been welcomed into your home and your hearts." Anjali smiled, her eyes reflecting the warmth of the village. "That is the spirit of Kumbalangi," she said. "And it is our joy to share it with the world." With hearts full and memories etched in their minds, the family returned to Mumbai, carrying a piece of Kumbalangi with them—a piece of tranquility, beauty, and the simple joy of living in harmony with nature. And back in the village, Anjali and Rajesh prepared to welcome their next guests, ready to share the magic of Christone Holidays once more.

St. Mary's Orthodox Church, Niranam( Niranam Pally)

Niranam Church has a rich history of being the symbol of Christian faith in Kerala and a citadel of Orthodox Christianity since its inception in AD 54 by St Thomas, one of the twelve apostles of Jesus Christ. St Thomas reached Kerala in AD 52 and started preaching the gospel. He founded 8 churches, which are called ‘Ezhara Pallikal’, meaning seven and half churches. These were at Kodungallur, Kollam, Niranam, Nilackal (Chayal), Kokkamangalam, Kottakkayal (Paravoor), Palayoor (Chattukulangara) and Thiruvithamkode (the half church). St. Thomas who had great respect for the Holy Virgin, named all these churches after St. Mary. At Niranam

The many testimonies to the saintly intercession of Mar Gregorios made Parumala Church and the tomb a centre of pilgrimage.

Mannarasala Sree Nagaraja Temple

Mannarasala Sree Nagaraja Kshetram is an ancient pilgrimage centre situated in south-west Kerala. Of all the places of serpent worship in the world. there is none that is more benign, awe-inspiring and legendary than Mannarasala, as blessed and envisaged by Lord Parasurama, the creator of Kerala.The evolution of Mannarasala as the supreme place of worship of the serpent Gods is associated with Parasurama, the son of Jamadagini and a descendant of Bhrigu. When Parasurama decided to seek atonement from the sin of killing the Kshatriyas, he approached the holy Rishis. They suggested that he should make a gift of a land of his own to the Brahmins. Parasurama propitiated Varuna Deva (the Lord of the Seas) to get some land for himself. Varuna appeared before and advised him to throw his parasu, the axe which Lord Siva had given him, into the sea to reclaim land. He throws it and raises a piece of land from the sea and gives it as a gift to the Brahmins. This land is believed to be the present-day Kerala.

Payippadu Vallam Kali

Ananthapuram Palace

The 18th-century palace with four courtyards (‘pathinaru kettu’) and conforming to the vasthu architecture of Travancore is bearing a rich legacy in the evolution of Malayalam literature. Anandhapuram palace had witnessed the birth of many Malayalam and Sanskrit works of Valiya Koyithampuran. Fifth generation descendants of the Thampuran are now living in the palace. The structure is constructed in ‘surki,’ a mixture of lime and clay, and the roof in wood. Now, the roofing structure is facing termite attacks. Valiya Koyithampuran had stayed in the palace for more than five years after being placed under house arrest from 1875 to 1880 by Travancore king Ayilyam Thirunal. Among the noted works he created during the time are ‘Kshamapana Sahasram,’ ‘Yamapranama Sathakam’ and ‘Visakha Vijayam’. The thread of his celebrated poem ‘Mayura Sandesam’ was also derived during his life in the palace.Thampuran had married Rani Lakshmi Bayi of Travancore Palace in 1859 and later came to stay there. As he had no children, the building was handed over to his sisters. Their ancestors have been living there since. The library and books in various languages used by Thampuran are preserved here.

 Krishnapuram Palace

The Krishnapuram Palace is a rare specimen of the Kerala style of architecture, complete with gabled roofs, narrow corridors and dormer windows. Residence of the rulers of Kayamkulam Kingdom, the age of the palace is unknown. Renovated in the 18th century, the palace is today a protected monument under the Archaeology Department.
