Experience Cochin Attractions With An Ayurvedic Massage

Cochin, the “Queen of the Arabian Sea” has been on my list for a long time as the city offers diverse options to ponder upon. As an amalgamation of several islands like Bolgatty island, Vyepeen island to the most popular island of Mattancherry, Cochin blew our mind as we wandered around the Mattancherry palace or tried to understand the beauty of vivid history of India’s first synagogue to one of the oldest churches of India- St Francis Church. 
After a long yet fruitful day, my mother grew tired and hence we decided to let her experience the world famous ayurvedic massage. Dating back to thousands of years, Kerala massage is considered the best in the world. She had a refreshing session where her body was treated with an amazing collection of herbal oils that made her body feel rejuvenated and her mind at-peace. It was a lifetime experience for her as her mind was relieved of stress and anxiety. As per her own words, the masseuse created a therapeutic connection between her mind and body, and she felt closer to spirituality. 

We highly recommend experiencing this amazing attraction of Kerala once in your lifetime that will treat your mind, body and senses together.

Explore the Exotic Plants and Trees in Beautiful Botanical Gardens of Ooty

You must have caught the sight of the beautiful botanical gardens of Ooty in different movies from Bollywood and the Botanical gardens have featured in different scenes.
As such, the botanical garden was one of the prime locations that we kept in the list for our Ooty trip.
My mother had particular interest in this garden as it is home to different medicinal shrubs and ferns. Entering the garden, we started with the Lower garden which is the main attraction for the tourists. Strolling around, we looked at the exotic plants and trees like Deodar, Jacaranda, Magnolia, Eucalyptus, etc.
Next to the Lower garden, we proceeded through the Fern House and saw a mega flower show going on near the stream or the water pool. Close to the water pool, we went through the New Garden where our mind was once again refreshed by green grass as if someone had placed a natural carpet along with exotic plants like Eucalyptus, Pinus Wallichii etc.

This garden merges with the amazing glass house where we saw plants like Phlox Diantus, Petunia etc. What made us happy was that the garden is so well maintained.
So, if you have a love for the plants, why not go explore these exotic ones in Ooty?
