Coupled with the lush vegetation throughout the state makes it very humid especially during the summer months. In fact, Kerala doesn’t experience winter at all! Kerala’s architecture, therefore has been designed in a such a way to protect against the abundance of rain, sun and humidity! Early maritime associations with countries such as China, Europe and the Arab nations have also shown its influence in the evolution of Kerala’s architectural style.
