If it is to say that Aleeppey is worshiped in every form, then it will not be wrong. There are rivers, canals, backwaters and 82 km long coastline, which is 13% of Kerala's state total coastline. This place is also known for the confluence of the three major rivers of the state of Kerala, Manimala, Pamba and Anchkovil.
Aleeppey is also called ‘Alappuzha’, which means the place that lies between the ocean and its rivers. A palace on the boat in peaceful city, having sea one side and back water otherside. The main attraction here is the luxury houseboat floating on Back Waters for which tourist from India and abroad spent their holidays to enjoy this. This houseboat is like a big bungalow floating on the water in its own right. There are two or three bedrooms with an attached bathroom. There is a long corridor in it also. You can enjoy your cooking in houseboats also in a kitchen inside it. Every houseboat has its own generator set, which supplies electricity. These houseboats are also air-conditioned. They are so big and perfectly built that while living in them you do not even know that they are floating on water.
