Also known by its Anglicized name Alleppey, Alappuzha is situated on the south-western coast of India. Gifted with immense natural beauty, the backwaters of Alappuzha have been the mainstay of tourism in Kerala. The port of Alappuzha used to be one of the busiest trade centres, trading with the regions of the Persian Gulf and even Europe.
Alappuzha is the gateway to the backwaters of Kerala, also compared to Venice due to its abundance of canals. For an up-close view of the palm-lined waterways, rent a houseboat. The snake-boat race in August is a remarkable festival, with each typical boat having a crew of more than 100 local sailors.
In the second half of the 18th century, Alappuzha, the foundation of which was laid by Dewan Raja Kesava Das of Travancore, had trade ties with ancient Greece and Rome. In their works, even travellers like Pliny and Ptolemy have mentioned places in Alappuzha. Alappuzha became a premier port town because of the efforts and foresight of Raja Kesava Das, who developed roads and canals to enhance transportation.
