Kerala (Malayalam: േകരളം; Kēraḷaṁ) is a state on the Malabar Coast of southwestern India.


To its east and northeast, Kerala borders Tamil Nadu and Karnataka; to its west and south lie the Indian Ocean islands of Lakshadweep and the Maldives, respectively. Kerala envelops Mahé, a coastal exclave of Pondicherry.


The States Reorganisation Act of 1 November 1956 elevated Kerala to statehood. Today, Kerala is one of four states in South India.
