It is not, as yet, crowded with shops and restaurants and is relatively free of swarms of tourists. But there is a considerable amount of the backpacking tourists; they were the people who first discovered the charms of this quiet beach, which was formerly known for being a pilgrimage centre. About 50 kilometres north of Thiruvananthapuram, Varkala in Kerala has a laid back, relaxed atmosphere and a rather compact beach that does not take too long to explore. Besides the prices for accommodation and the food are very reasonable, the main reason why there are so many budget tourists here. Accommodation options are plenty, most of them spread on the two cliffs north and south of the spacious cove that forms the famed Papanasma Beach. Varkala in Kerala with its cheap lodgings and diehard fans, who swear by its magnificent beach, stands on its own as an international tourist destination.

Sights and Attractions Varkala

Sivagiri Mutt

Located three kilometres away on the eastern edge of town is the ashram that was the final resting place of Kerala’s famed saint and social reformer Sree Narayana Guru who preached ‘one caste, one religion and one god for man’ . He also founded the SNDP or Sree Narayana Dharma Paripalana Yogam, which worked for the upliftment of the socially backward. The ashram he built here in 1904 remained his abode till he breathed his last in 1928.

The mutt, with its distinctive multi-tiered white turret, sitting on an elevated plateau on 200 acres of land, is held scared. Lower down is Sree Narayana guru’s old residence, which now displays some of his personal belongings. On a guided tour to Varkala visit the nearby Sharda Temple dedicated to Saraswati, whose idol was installed by the guru himself.

Kathakali performances

A must visit destination when on a tour to Varkala is Varkala Kathakali Centre near the north cliff that organizes Kathakail performances for tourists. Held during the evenings, the show starts with the make up sessions, where you can watch the elaborate and time consuming makeup process of the artistes followed by the performances with English commentary. Mohiniattam is also performed here.

Ponnumthuruthu Island

About 20 kms away, ‘Thuruthi Kshetram’ as it is popularly known and surrounded by the Anjengo backwaters, this island is definitely a must see when on a Kerala tour. Approachable by boat from the makeshift jetty at the nearby Nedunganda village, the island is uninhabited save for Siva- Parvati temple standing amid thick coconut groves, which almost completely covers its entire stretch. The original temples dates back to 100 years. Exposed to all the vagaries of nature, it was in state of disrepair till most of it was rebuilt about 10 yrs back. The entire island is temple property. Legend has it that the queens of the Travancore royal family used to visit the temple and discretely hide their cache of gold and jewellery on the island to keep it safe. Hence the name Ponnumthuruthu or golden island.

Lighthouse

There is a 130 feet tall lighthouse here. The ruins of one of the earliest factories set up by the British East India Company, built in 1684, can also be found in Anjengo. The 15 kms route from Varkala goes past charming coastal villages and the beautiful Chilakoor Beach, which offers glorious

Views of the past.
Kappil Beach and backwaters

This is an idyllic spot. A confluence of the sea and the Kappil River, the tongues of backwaters, the extensive estuary, all add up to a magical interplay of land and water. The small palm-covered islets within the estuary enhance its charms even more and is a must see when on Kerala honeymoon tour. The coastal road passing through this area practically holds the sea and the estuary apart for a long stretch, offering delightful views of the waters on either side. There are no tourists, no vendors or shops and absolutely no traffic elsewhere.

The District Tourism Promotion Council runs the Priyadarshini boat club close to the bridge over the river, which gives you a chance to go boating on Kerala honeymoon tour.

Anjengo Fort

Built in 1695 by the Portuguese, the queen of Attingal is said to have given permission for its construction on a strip of land called Anjengo, sandwiched between the sea and the backwaters. The fort was originally used as a depth to store merchandise; however, after it came into the hands of the British, a captain keeling converted into a fort. It therefore does not have the formidable look of other forts in Kerala, being more an enclosed bastion with a bulwark of high laterite walls and look out points. There are many tombstones at Anjengo, the earliest one dating to 1704, with inscriptions offerings a glimpse into the history and is a must see when on Varkala tour to Kerala.
