The state Kerala, which represents just 1% of the land mass, is considered to be one of India's most beautiful states. It is a very rural state with most of the population living in villages but is culturally and scenically diverse. Kerala has two national parks, ten wildlife sanctuaries and two bird sanctuaries.
