Thrissur Tourism & Travel Guide

Thrissur, the land of temples, is one of the most visited cities in Kerala. The waterfalls and the scenic temples here offer one a mix of nature, history and culture. Among the most significant temples, the Vadakummnathan temple is a must visit. The temple is slightly orthodox and allows only Hindus to enter. The temple is known for its antique murals and paintings and even if you aren't spiritual, do visit the temple for its beauty and brilliant architecture. Another stunning spot in Thrissur is the Athirappilly Waterfalls. The space around the waterfalls is the perfect picnic spot allowing you an unobstructed view of the gushing waters. Though, like all waterfalls, this one is in all its glory during monsoons, but you can still spend a day here irrespective of the season. Among other important temples, Vadakkunnathan Temple, Thiruvambadi Krishna Shrine and Triprayar Sri Rama Temple are a must visit. A day in Thrissur is more than enough to explore the city and if you have plans to head to the popular backwaters, let Thrissur be a short stop.

About 100kms west of Mysore, the hilly hamlet of Kodagu (formerly known as Coorg) is located in the evergreen highlands of the Western Ghats. This charming district beckons tourists with its spice gardens, cardamom forests and a sea of coffee plantations. Travel to Coorg for the wide array of adventure activities. Raft through the white rapids of the Barapole river, trek across the grasslands of the Kopatty-Kalugundi trail or quad biking through the Chevalara falls. For those seeking a more relaxed experience, fishing at the Valnoor and Bheemeshwari fishing camps or simply wandering through coffee plantations are some of the most sought after things to do in Coorg. The 17th century Madikeri Fort where the revered Tipu Sultan once held court, and the Omkareshwar temple are among the most famous attractions of the district’s headquarters in Madikeri. While you are here, also visit Namdroling Monastery in Bylakuppe, the largest Tibetan settlement of south India. Go here for a pleasant evening intermittent with monastic hymns, prayer bells and a motley of Tibetan handicrafts.
