Cultural Capital of Kerala
Kerala, a state in southern India, has the city of Thrissur. It is renowned for its holy places and vibrant festivities. Vadakkumnathan Temple, which is located in the middle and honours Lord Shiva, is decorated with murals. Nearby lies the elaborate, Indo-Gothic Our Lady of Dolours Basilica. Elephants can be found at Thiruvambady Temple, which lies to the north. Bronze statues and antique coins can be found in the archaeology museum at Sakthan Thampuran Palace.
Kerala’s economic links with other regions of the world were greatly aided by the Thrissur region. The city was once known as Trichur, and Lord Parasurama, Lord Vishnu’s sixth avatar, is credited with founding it.
Popular Things To Do
Although we spent the majority of our time in Cherai just relaxing and taking in the atmosphere of the sea and the backwaters, we did not miss up the chance to discover the hidden jewels nearby. We had a magical boat tour through the backwaters, strolled through Fort Kochi’s quaint and charming alleyways, and enjoyed a breathtaking sunset on the beach. When you are in that area, a day excursion from Kochi to Athirapally Waterfalls, commonly known as Athirapally Falls, and Ezhattumugam is unavoidable.
