Description
Back of the Book

Inside- Cities, Backwaters, Midlands, The Hills, River Nila, Coastal Circuit, Resources & Maps…

From the Jacket

When people speak of Kerala as the destination of a lifetime, it is hardly an exaggeration for it is one of those places which, like an intricately worked tapestry, you gradually grow to appreciate. There are so many things to discover here that you wonder how such a small geographical area could hold such varied attractions — a fascinating history, rich culture, interesting customs, unique architecture, a well- entrenched alternative system of health, superlative food, powerful art forms, and a literate and highly opinionated people, who inhabit a society where tradition and modernity co—exist effortlessly.

Maps & More — Kerala
You will find this book indispensable for a journey into this delightful land. Apart from a wealth of information within its pages, you’ll find innovative maps covering every region in the State from cities and districts to destinations and circuits.

Thank you very much for the Shri Yantra with Navaratna which has arrived here safely. I noticed that you seem to have had some difficulty in posting it so thank you...Posting anything these days is difficult because the ordinary postal services are either closed or functioning weakly.   I wish the best to Exotic India which is an excellent company...
Mary, Australia
Love your website and the emails
John, USA
I love antique brass pieces and your site is the best. Not only can I browse through it but can purchase very easily.
Indira, USA
Je vis à La Martinique dans les Caraïbes. J'ai bien reçu votre envoi 'The ten great cosmic Powers' et Je vous remercie pour la qualité de votre service. Ce livre est une clé pour l’accès à la Connaissance de certains aspects de la Mère. A bientôt
GABRIEL-FREDERIC Daniel
Namaskar. I am writing to thank Exotic India Arts for shipping the books I had ordered in the past few months. As I had mentioned earlier, I was eagerly awaiting the 'Braj Sahityik Kosh' (3 volumes). I am happy to say that all the three volumes of it eventually arrived a couple of days ago in good condition. The delay is understandable in view of the COVID19 conditions and I want to thank you for procuring the books despite challenges. My best wishes for wellness for everyone in India,
Prof Madhulika, USA
