The European village of India

Nature and its beauty are unparalleled. Every human being who has seen and experienced nature at its best remains besotted by it for years to come. Often we find travelers and seekers setting off on long, arduous journeys to be a part of nature’s mystic beauty. Considering this desire of mankind, recently a park turned village was developed in Kerala, where a large number of people turned up to revel in its beauty.

The park is situated right between houses so as to not be considered isolated. The vehicles aren’t allowed and one can enjoy its beauty by walking around. The use of modern-day technology and skills gives it a look at an ancient, mystical European village. Given the beauty of the park, it is no surprise that it has turned into a social media sensation. The park is known by the name Vagbhatananda situated in the Vadakara district of Kozhikode.
