Backwaters refer to the large inland lakes of Kerala, consisting of an exquisite network of lakes, canals, estuaries and curious water formations. The backwaters of Kerala stretch over 1900kms, providing, drinking water and irrigating paddy fields.

Rice boats and even small ships used to ply in these waters, carrying coconut, rice and spices to various trading centers of Kerala. Even today, these waterways link remote villages and islands with the main land. It is an incredibly different experience to cruise in the backwaters in country boats, absorbing the beauty of the villages.

While floating down the waterways your boatman can take you into one of the thatched country toddy shops for a glass of the fermented water which is served along with a delicious array of fresh fish and tapioca - a delicacy not to be missed. Exploring the backwaters is a thrilling experience of drifting under little hump-backed bridges, serenaded by long avenues of palms past temples and churches.

When you decide on a backwater trip chose to ride in a houseboat. They are known as 'Kettuvallam' and are floating houses made of coir. They are very sturdy and safe. A day or two in a houseboat floating down the backwaters pampered by a small crew consisting of a captain, personal chef, and second mate is just what the doctor ordered for a perfect Indian holiday experience.

Many non-Muslims conduct initiation ceremonies to the world of letters of their children here.

Since ancient times, trade relations between Arabia and India were active. Even before Islam had been established in Arabia, Arab traders visited the Malabar region, which was a major link between the ports of India and Southeast Asia. With the advent of Islam, the Arab merchants became carriers of the new religion and they propagated it wherever they went One of the myths around the mosque is that Cheraman Perumal, the Chera king, went to Arabia, embraced Islam and changed his name to Tajuddin.

A church and many traditional houses in the nearby area, built by the Europeans still remain today.

When the interest of the rulers of Mysore turned towards Malabar, Haider Ali negotiated with the Dutch for the purchase of the Kottappuram Fort and the one at Pallippuram. During Tipu Sultan's possession of the Malabar Coast, the Travancore rulers felt it was imperative for them to possess these forts, to safeguard their kingdom against invasion by the Mysore rulers. So, the then Travancore King, Ramavarma Dharmaraja (1758-1798), purchased these two forts on 31 July 1789. The agreement was executed in 1909, by Raja Kesava Dasa, the Dewan of Travancore and John Gerard Van Angelbeck, the Dutch Governor. Later, finding it in a ruined state, the Department of Archaeology of Travancore erected a memorial pillar inside the Fort and decided to preserve it as a public property.
