Houseboat in Alleppey BackwaterRelishing the sobriquet of the 'Venice of the East', the backwater town of Alappuzha (previously Alleppey) in Kerala is a destination of placidity and beauty. It first gives you peace of mind and then a joy forever. In the olden days, it was a flourishing port on the Malabar coast. Today, it is known for its coir industry and prawn farming. For a tourist, it offers fascinating houseboat cruises, traditional boat races and sights that haunt the memory for a long time to come.

Climate & Best Time
The town has a tropical and humid climate. Summers are hot with temperature averaging between 22.5 degrees and 35 degrees centigrade. Winters are not very cold. Temperature during this period drops down to a minimum of 20 degrees centigrade. July, August and September are the main monsoon months. The town receives a good amount of rainfall during this period.

Places to Visit
Its wonderful location on the banks of the Vembanad Lake provides it with numerous charms. From historical remnants and places of worship to an eyeful view of the natural wonders, the town has a good deal to offer to its tourists.

» Alappuzha Beach
A major draw for tourists, the Alappuzha Beach of Kerala is a nice place to spend some quiet moments with one's family and friends. The 140-year-old pier and an ancient lighthouse attract much attention.

» Ambalapuzha
Just 14 km from Alappuzha, it is an important centre of pilgrimage both for locals and tourists. Dedicated to Lord Krishna, the temple also epitomises the typical Keralan temple architecture.

» Chettikulangara Bhagwathy Temple
The temple is a regular haunt of locals, for they believe that the deity of the temple holds some exceptional powers. A trip to the temple during February–March (festival time) can be much rewarding for the tourist.

» Kuttanad
