A few Glimpses of South India

My family isn’t one to go on vacations often, but the very few we do take are memorable indeed. I found a few old pictures in my computer, so I wanted to share them with you guys! ^^

Keep in mind, I was about eight years younger when I took these pictures, and I’m not the world’s greatest photographer :3

1- Kanyakumari, Tamil Nadu

Kanyakumai is the southernmost tip of Peninsular India. It’s name was derived from the Devi Kanya Kumari temple in the same region.It is a popular tourist destination, well renowned for it’s expansive beaches and elaborately decorated temples. It is especially well known for it’s sunrises and sunsets.

There are a lot of small shops nearby where you can buy amusing trinkets at very cheap rates.

2- Kumarakom, Kerala

Kumarakom is situated near the city of Kottayam in Kerala, and it is most famous for backwater tourism. In fact, it is set next to the Vembanad Lake, the largest backwater in Kerala.

The food was wonderful! The climate was pleasantly tropical, the kind where you never get tired no matter how long you walk.

3- Alappuzha beach, Kerala

Though a very popular tourist spot, not many people were there when I had visited it. The sand was clear and the people were well behaved! It was a beautiful place to just sit down and marinate in your own thoughts.

It was especially beautiful during the sunset!

South India, despite its many problems, is a uniquely beautiful place. 🙂
