Kayaking

Indriya resorts

Kayaking is the use of a Kayak for moving across water. Kayaking and canoeing are also known as paddling. Kayaking is distinguished from canoeing by the sitting position of the paddler and the number of blades on the paddle. A kayak is defined by the International Canoe Federation (the world sanctioning body) as a boat where the paddler faces forward, legs in front, using a double-bladed paddle. From a pier at the edge of the lagoon guests may opt to row out in a kayak and explore the fascinating water channels that branch out into the landscape.

Beach Volleyball

Indriya resorts

Beach volleyball is played by two teams of two players on a sand court divided by a net. As in indoor volleyball, the object of the game is to send the ball over the net in order to ground it on the opponent's court, and to prevent the same effort by the opponent. A team is allowed up to three touches to return the ball. The ball is put in play with a service-a hit by the server from behind the rear court boundary over the net to the opponents. The rally continues until the ball is grounded on the playing court, goes "out", or lands on the net. The team winning a rally scores a point and serves to start the following rally. The four players serve in the same sequence throughout the match, changing server each time a rally is won by the receiving team.

Country Boating

Indriya resorts

Country boats in Kerala are canoes of varying sizes that serve as transportation for a vendor to trade his wares, for children going to school, for families to visit. The hull of the canoe is designed with a series of wooden planks, cut in lengths, carved and tied together using coir with coconut fiber stuffed in between. They are held fast by coir knots (not a single nail is used). This framework is then coated with a caustic black resin extracted from boiled cashew kernels.

Guests may opt to cruise in a country boat and explore the fascinating water channels that branch out into the landscape. The exploration of the backwaters is a fascinating experience viewing endemic and migratory species of birds at close quarters, study native fishing practices and observe first hand the way of life of the people in the area.

Fishing

Kite Flying

Indriya resorts

Designs often emulate flying insects, birds, and other beasts, both real and mythical. Tails are used for some single-line kite designs to keep the kite's nose pointing into the wind. Spinners and spinsocks can be attached to the flying line for visual effect. There are rotating wind socks which spin like a turbine. On large display kites these tails, spinners and spinsocks can be 50 feet long or more.

Kite festivals are a popular form of entertainment throughout the world. Kites and kite fighting festivals are very popular in India. Highly maneuverable single-string paper and bamboo kites are flown from the rooftops while using line friction in an attempt to cut each other's kite lines, either by letting the cutting line loose at high speed or by pulling the line in a fast and repeated manner.

Boating

Tug of War

Indriya resorts
Indriya resorts

Tug of war, also known as tug o' war, tug war, rope war, rope pulling, or tugging war, is a sport that directly pits two teams against each other in a test of strength. The origins of tug of war are uncertain, but it is beyond dispute that this once royal sport was practiced in ancient Egypt and China.

Two teams of eight, whose total mass must not exceed a maximum weight as determined for the class, align themselves at the end of a rope. The rope is marked with a "centre line" and two marks on either side of the centre line. The teams start with the rope's centre line directly above a line marked on the ground, and once the contest (the "pull") has commenced, attempt to pull the other team such that the marking on the rope closest to their opponent crosses the centre line, or the opponents commit a foul (such as a team member sitting or falling down).

  • Kottappuram Fort

    Kottappuram Fort

    Kottappuram Fort, built by the Portuguese in 1523 was referred to popularly as Cranganore Fort, today, known as Kodungallur Fort. It was captured and destroyed by the Dutch in 1663. The fort had a strategic importance, situated at the mouth of the river Periyar and controlling access to the ships and boats that passed to and from the interior of Malabar. A town developed around this fort. A church and many traditional houses in the nearby area, built by the Europeans still remain today. Kottappuram Fort played a significant role in many wars between the Zamorin and the rulers of Kochi. In 1662 a Dutch fleet made an attempt to capture it from the Portuguese, but that invasion was successful only in 1663. A fierce battle ensued and the fort was severely damaged. After taking over the fort the Dutch used it as an outhouse to guard their trade ships.

    When the interest of the rulers of Mysore turned towards Malabar, the Mysore king Haider Ali negotiated with the Dutch for the purchase of the Kottappuram Fort and the one at Pallippuram. During Tipu Sultan’s possession of the Malabar Coast, the Travancore rulers felt it was imperative for them to possess these forts, to safeguard their kingdom against invasion by the Mysore rulers. The then Travancore King, Ramavarma Dharmaraja (1758-1798), purchased these two forts on 31 July 1789. The agreement was executed in 1909, by Raja Kesava Dasa, the Dewan of Travancore and John Gerard Van Angelbeck, the Dutch Governor.

  • Paliam Palace, Paliath Achans

    Paliam Palace, Paliath Achans

    The Paliam Palace was the residence of the Paliath Achans, who were traditionally the prime ministers to the former Maharajas of the State of Kochi. During the 16th century, when the security of the king was under threat by the Portuguese, the then Paliath Achan ensured the safety of the Raja by escorting him to Chendamangalam where he lived incognito. The Dutch in appreciation of the Paliath Achan's services renovated this building in Chendamangalam and presented it to him.

  • Pallippuram Fort

    Pallippuram Fort

    Pallippuram Fort known as 'Ayakkotta' or 'Alikkotta' ('kotta' in Malayalam means fort) was constructed by the Portuguese in 1507. In many books, this fort is referred to as an octagonal structure, although it is a hexagon. The relics of this fort are now a bastion of three stories in height where, inside the fort, the floor is raised to 5 feet from the ground. Beneath the floor a small cellar opens on to a passage, which runs obliquely from north to south. The Portuguese used the Pallippuram Fort as a base to check the ships that sailed the Periyar and the cellar was used for storing gunpowder. A church, a hospital and living quarters have been found near this fort.

    This fort was besieged by the Dutch in 1662 and though the Portuguese defended it, they were ultimately defeated, after which the Dutch occupied the fort. The strategic location of the Pallipuram Fort caught the attention of the Mysore rulers, who tried to purchase it from the Dutch. But the English East India Company intervened and terminated that proposal. In 1789, the ruler of Travancore in a strategic move purchased the Pallippuram and Kottappuram forts. After the decline of the Mysore rulers, the English East India Company took possession of the whole Malabar area. Gradually the fort lost its importance and was abandoned by the military. In 1964, it was declared a protected monument, under the Department of Archaeology.

  • Paravur Jewish Synagogue

    The building is located in the former Jewish Street of the Paravur region serving as the place of worship for the Jewish community that settled very close to the Paravur Market. The complex comprises of two buildings – a section in the double storied entrance and the main synagogue separated by an open space. The section at the entrance called the ‘Padipura’ features two rooms on either side which were used for storage on the ground floor and Hebrew classes were conducted in the floor above. Beyond this is a small courtyard which leads to the main entry to the synagogue.

    The synagogue is attractive; with a pillared entry passage that leads from the two rooms at the main entrance to the prayer hall consisting of two rooms; a rectangular room generally used for meetings and the larger prayer room with the Bimah and the Ark. There is a balcony above the eastern entry, on the first floor, which was used by the reader on certain special occasions. The ceiling and the brackets supporting the balcony are decorated with gilded carved wooden rosettes, typical of most synagogues. Behind this balcony is the women's gallery, which can be approached by a staircase situated near the entry to the synagogue. The original Bimah and Ark were taken to Israel in 1992 and replicas of the original have been installed in their place.

  • Pattanam Excavation Site

    Pattanam Excavation Site

    The Pattanam excavations were the first ever multi-disciplinary excavations undertaken in Kerala. The first part of the project was a surface survey for archaeological and historical evidence in the region. This was followed by extensive excavations at the early historic urban site of Pattanam. The main objective of the excavation was to search for archaeological evidence that would help to locate/identify an early historic urban settlement and the ancient Indo-Roman port of Muziris or Musiri on the Malabar Coast.

    The site at Pattanam covers approximately 1.5 sq. km and the core area measures about 600 x 400 m. Many important findings were obtained like human bones, storage jars, a gold ornament, glass beads, stone beads, utilitarian objects made of stone, copper and iron, typical pottery, early Chera coins, brick walls, a brick platform, a ring well, a wharf with bollards, and a six meter long wooden canoe. The structures indicate a vast ‘urban’ settlement. The excavations also suggest that the site was first occupied by indigenous "Megalithic" (Iron Age) people, followed by the Roman contact in the Early Historic Period. It appears that the site was continuously occupied at least from the 2nd century BC to the 10th century AD. The maritime contacts of this region during the Early Historic Period seem to have been extensive as evidenced by the large number of Roman amphora shreds, a few Terra Sigillata shreds, Sassanian, Yemenite and other West Asian potteries. Proliferation of roulette ware probably made in the Bengal-Gangetic region signifies the site's importance in the pan Indian context as well.
