Allappuzha (Alleppey) is a landmark between the broad Arabian sea and a network of rivers flowing into it. In the early first decade of the 20th Century the then Viceroy of the Indian Empire, Lord Curzon made a visit in the State to Alleppey, now Alappuzha. Fascinated by the scenic beauty of the place, in joy and amazement, he said, here nature has spent up on the land her richest bounties. In his exhilaration, it is said, he exclaimed, Alleppey, the Venice of the East. Thus the sobriquet found its place in the world tourism map.

The presence of a port and a pier, crisscross roads and numerous bridges across them, a long and unbroken sea coast might have motivated him to make this comparison. District of Alappuzha figures in classified literature. History says Alappusha and trade relations with ancient Greeece and Rome in BC and in the middle ages. Alappuzha is also famous for its boat races, houseboat cruise, beaches, marine products and coir industry. Here, one can see coconut husks being beaten into fiber for making beautiful mats and coir products. A singular characteristic of this land is the region called Kuttanad, the rice bowl of Kerala. Kuttanad is perhaps the only place in the world where farming is done below sea level.

The nearest airport to Alleppey is at Kochi (Cochin - COK at 100 kilometers). Alappuzha is connected by rail with almost all the important towns in India. National Highway No. 47, which runs through Alappuzha town, connects the district with important centers in South India. Ferry boats on the scenic backwaters of Alappuzha, connect the district with Kochi, Kollam, Kottayam and Chengannur. The cruise through the winding canals and backwaters is truly an unforgettable experience.

Like all large, multi-ethnic countries, India has host of diverse foods, the cuisine of each region defined by the indigenous produce of the land and the various cultures that have influenced it. The culinary efforts of the different communities of Kerala come out in distinctly different dishes of great variety. The Syrian Christians are heirs to an astonishingly rich culinary culture.
