Close to the equator – village and beach

This morning started with a visit to Padmanabhaswamy temple, an important Hindu temple.

After a delicious lunch, we drove to a small fisherman village. In this village, you can find a church a Hindu temple and a mosque. We met the priest of the impressing catholic church. In the village the Indian government is about to build a big industrial harbour for trade purpose with Dubai and Singapore. From the top of the church the village reminded us of Rio de Janeiro, due to a tall Jesus-statue. Back to the ground again, we were able to watch the trading of fish at the shore. A big sensation was a shark lying dead in the sand. Just around the corner, on the other side of the lighthouse, we found the touristic Kovalam beach. Some of us took a bath in the ocean, others went shopping or enjoyed a fresh juice in one of the many restaurants.
