Sithara Homestay welcomes you to Kerala, the nature lover's wonderland, for an amazing experience. Kerala, a sliver of land located at the southernmost tip of India is 560 km long with lofty mountain ranges gracing one side and washed by the blue Arabian Sea on the other. At the widest, Kerala is only 120 km from mountain to sea. Popularly known as 'God's own country', Kerala is viewed and listed by the National Geographic Traveler as one of the 50 places of a lifetime to be visited. Enjoy and explore Kerala in the ambiance of a traditional kerala house with us at Sithara Homestay. Take back with you some of life's most cherished memories.

Situated on one of the streets of Fort Cochin, Sithara Homestay caters to the taste and needs of the discerning tourists. Present on a street studded with numerous ancient buildings conjuring up an aura of yore. An ideal place to start your discovery of the place and to plan and explore the beauty of Kerala. Fort Cochin is one of the sections of Cochin (The industrial Capital of Kerala), tucked between the Arabian Sea & the backwaters. Situated on a peninsula in the west linked by a complex system of ferries and unimaginatively made bridges, Fort Cochin shares the western location with Mattancherry as its other geographical ally of the old districts,

During a wander through their narrow lanes, you will stumble upon spice markets, Chinese fishing nets, a synagogue, a Portuguese palace, India's first European church, Dutch homes, and a village green that could have been transported from England's Home Counties. The city is also one of the few places in Kerala where, at any time of year, you can be assured of seeing Kathakali dance, either in one of several special tourist theatres, or at a more authentic performance by a temple based company.

Places to visit

Sithara Homestay is situated in the heart of Fort Cochin and is walking distance from all major sights. You can visit Chinese nets, Vasco Da Gama church, Jew Town, the synagogue and the Dutch Palace etc.

The land of green magic is a narrow, fertile strip on the southwest coast of India, sandwiched between the Arabian Sea and the Western Ghats. The landscape is dominated by rice fields, mango and cashew nut trees and, above all, coconut palms. The Western Ghats, with their dense tropical forests, misty peaks, extensive ridges and ravines, have sheltered Kerala from mainland invaders and encouraged maritime contact with the outside world. People have been sailing to Kerala in search of spices, sandalwood and ivory for at least 2000 years.

Kerala is a land of rivers and backwaters. Forty-four rivers (41 west-flowing and 3 east-flowing) criss-cross Kerala along with their countless tributaries.

Kerala, India's most advanced society: A hundred percent literate people. World-class health care systems. India's lowest infant mortality and highest life expectancy rates. The highest physical quality of life in India. Peaceful and pristine, Kerala is also India's cleanest State.

For administrative purpose, the state of Kerala is divided into fourteen districts. Most of these districts offer all the tourism products typical of the State.
