According to Hindu mythology, Kerala was created by Lord Parasurama, an incarnation of Lord Vishnu by throwing his axe across the sea to create new land for his devotees to live peacefully. So, Kereala is God’s own creation, hence it is called God’s own country!
#2 Every nook and corner in Kerala you will see Hindu temples, Muslim mosques and Christian Churches; and unlike many other parts of India, people live happily without communal riots and great religiuos tolerance. Hence it is God’s own country full of worship places!
#3 Nestled between the pristine waters of the Arabian sea on the west and the lush Western Ghat mountains on the east, its intense network of rivers and lagoons, thick forests, exotic wildlife, tranquil stretches of emerald backwaters and a long shoreline of serene beaches make it a traveler’s paradise. God’s own country! Paradire Kerala is called ‘god’s own country’ not because of some feature or nature as such. It is called so because it is the tagline devised by the Department of Tourism, Government of Kerala to promote the tourism in the state and it is working well. It is from tourism point of view but then every state in India and for that matter in world have their problem when it comes to society and culture. Remember the Woodstock movement and hippie culture in US in 1960s.
It’s because when lord Parasuram(one of the hindu incarnations) threw away his weapon parasu in the ocean after destroying all the Kshatriyas(a warrior caste in India) of earth 21 times,the water of that region was threw away and the land which came out became Kerala,beauty and other things may also be accompanying but the original truth is that.Lord Parasuram is considered as one of the 24 incanations of the god in hindu mythology. Kerala, the land of rivers and backwaters is a green strip of land, in the South West corner of Indian peninsula. Kerala is a state with full literacy, Higher Health care and lower mortality ratio. In Kerala you experience freshness and touch of mother earth everywhere. No wonder keralites call their State “God’s Own Country”.
The backwaters of Kerala are unique attraction to tourists. The biggest among these backwaters is the Vembanad Lake, with an area of 200 sq km, which opens out into the Arabian Sea at Cochin port. Backwaters, historical structures, culture, wildlife, and natural beauty, the state has all these and more.
The major tourist destinations in the State include Thiruvananthapuram, Kochi, Kovalam, Thrissur, Kozhikode, Munnar, Palakkad, Alappuzha, Kollam, Kannur, Periyar Wildlife Sanctuary, and Sabrimalai.
