Alleppey Tourism & Travel Guide - Know Before you Go!

Alleppey Overview

If you had to choose a single picture postcard to describe Kerala, chances are that you’d pick the one with a houseboat bobbing gently on the palm-fringed backwaters of Alleppey. A place that portrays the very essence of Kerala, Alleppey or Alaphuza or Alappuzha is popular with tourists from all over India and the world. So, if you’ e on a trip to enjoy God’s Own Country, then this ‘Venice of the East’ has to figure on your itinerary. While the place may seem laid-back and sleepy, it’s the maze of canals and waterways that infuse Alleppey with an energy that makes it what it is. Established in 1762 by Raja Keshawadasan, the then Divan of Travancore, this town was once a busy trade centre with one of the most vibrant ports along the entire stretch of the Malabar Coast. Now, after all these years, it’s better known for its prawn farming and Coir carpet industries, and the Nehru Trophy Boat Race that attracts visitors in large numbers. Dotted with churches, temples and palaces, each with a story of its own, Alleppey promises to dish out a bit of everything to the earnest traveller – history and adventure, fun, food and fiesta. So, people, get ready for the trip of a lifetime!
