This coastal town in the south of the state is a great place to visit. It is also where you can find the 2000-year-old Janardana Swami Temple. Although you will not be allowed into the inner sanctum unless you are a Hindu, you can explore the outer buildings and soak up the historic atmosphere.
The surrounding area is home to many endangered species, making it an excellent destination for wildlife enthusiasts. A great effort is being made to conserve the wild elephant population in this part of India.
The oldest quarter of the city of Cochin, where you will find churches, art galleries, some beautiful examples of colonial architecture from the Dutch and Portuguese periods and pungent local spice markets. The vast Chinese fishing nets on the shore, which are stretched across teak and bamboo poles, are very popular with visitors worldwide.
Periyar Wildlife Sanctuary
Situated in the picturesque Cardamom Hills, which are part of the mountain range known as the Western Ghats, conditions here are somewhat colder than in Cochin and other coastal destinations. To maximise your chances of seeing the more cautious species, the best time to visit is in the dry season, from December to April, when they come to the lake to drink.
