Chettuva Backwater, Thrissur

Our next plan was to visit Chettuva Backwater, which is about 8-9 kms away from Chavakkad Beach.

There were buses, taxis and autorikshaws available to take you to Chettuva. As we were waiting for a taxi, an autorikshaw came and we hopped into it.






A good part of Chettuva River meanders through Chettuva village. It is Azhimugham, where the Chettuva River meets the Arabian Sea.

Chettuva Backwater is a great tourist destination of Kerala. It is located in Chettuva village, in Thrissur Dist. Like many other tourists, we too loved to experience a Houseboat cruise in the backwater in Chettuva, enjoying the dense mangrove thickets on the banks, which enhance their beauty.

We were told that those who can have an overnight stay in one of the House Boats will give an unforgettable experience.

The boatman was very helpful and patiently he took us to whole area and explained everything.




When he saw a fisherman catching the lobsters, he reduced the speed of the boat further so that we could see it properly.

There were many people who had come there just to enjoy the backwater cruise and some foreigners who were also keen to stay in the nearby Raja Islands for an ayurvedic massage.

The other major attractions on the river are Chettuva Bungalow, Raja Islands and Chettuva Harbour.

Kerala is famous for backwaters, but first time i am hearing about "Chettuva Backwater". I know kumarakom and alappuzha are famous for Backwaters. Any way thank you so much for your information.

Thanks for visiting my blog and for the comment. Chettuva Backwater is not as big and as famous as Kumarakom and Alappuzha. It is a small place, but very inviting.

My Trip to Palani

Palani Murugan Temple is located on top of the Palani Hills in Tamil Nadu, South India.  The idol of Palani Andavar is said to have been made of  Navapashanam ( a combination of Veeram, Pooram, Rasam, Jathilingam, Kandagam, Gauri Pasanam, Vellai Pasanam, Mridharsingh, Silasat) ,  by a siddhar called Bhogar. H e is considered as one of the 18 siddhars born in the world. We left home at 7 a.m planning a long journey, and our first destination was Palani. We had booked an accommodation in a budget hotel, Soundarya, after reading many  reviews by Tripadvisor travellers. It was just okay for a day.  AC was a great relief and it was closer to the Palani Murugan temple. Food was also available. We reached there and had our lunch.  After taking some rest we proceeded towards the temple. We had reached the gate where tickets for winch are booked We wanted to travel in the rope car, but that was in another gate which is quite far, said the autorikshaw driver who took us there.

My trip to Nagamangalam, Tamil Nadu

Recently I had an opportunity to visit Lourdes Matha church (Our Lady of Lourdes) at Nagamangalam in Tamil Nadu. Nagamangalam is a Village in Kelamangalam Taluk in Krishnagiri District of Tamil Nadu State. One of my friends wanted to visit there and asked me whether I can accompany her. I took it as a God given opportunity and agreed to accompany her. I immediately googled to collect more details about the place, but initially I didn't find much information. I hope this blog may be of help to those who wish to travel there. The Church is located in the beautiful J.G. Farm at St.Mary's Nagar. From the gate of the Farm it takes 1.5 kms to reach there. Canteen We reached there at about 8.30 a.m. on a Saturday, without knowing the working time. After spending some time there we were about to return and by then people started coming in. So please check the timing of the Church before your visit at http://www.lourdesmatha.com/. The history of the

Visit to Swananda Loka - Bala Ganapathi Temple in Hoyasala style

I had an opportunity to visit Swananda Loka, an upcoming Ganapathi Temple in Hoyasala style of architecture, housed in the Swananda Ashrama complex located in the Agara village in Tataguni, 3 km off Kanakapura Road. Swananda Loka is believed to be the heavenly abode of Lord Ganesha. The 9-acre temple complex area with lush green gardens is a feast to the eyes and mind. The piolet project was completed successfully and the model called Ganapathi Panchayathana is  open to visitors.  Around the main shrine, the temple would have 4 shrines for the 4 Yuga Ganapathis and idols of 32 manifestations of Lord Ganapathi. In this Swanandashrama  complex, there is also a  temple for Lord Subramanya and another one for  Devi. In this Devi temple, Goddess is sitting on the snake. A goshala is also there where cows are taken care of. The Ashram also promotes education of rural children and organizes socio cultural events. I was blessed to attend a Mangalarthi puja
