Backwaters of Kerala


The Backwaters of Kerala are a glorious sight to behold, but due credit must be given to its residents who have preserved its beauty for centuries. This network of canals feed men and women whose ancestors built giant settlements on its shores. Their way of life, attitude and beliefs mirror the friendly and serene charm of the waters they so cherish. These visuals are a beautiful reminder of that ancient bond.
