Kerala is synonymous with many blissful things. Whether you talk of rejuvenation, food for soul (and body!) or the heavenly ayurvedic massage, Kerala tops the list. So how can it be far behind when it comes to fun and excitement! The boat races in Kerala are an ideal way to experience the vibrant life in Kerala.

The boat race festival of Kerala is held annually, the dates being decided by the traditional Malayalam calendar.

the great woman. It is a part of Cochin Carnival festival that takes
place every year in December in Kerala. The more famous and popular boat
