alapattanam River is the largest river in the Kannur district, located in the South Indian state of Kerala. Valapattam town is located on its bank. The famous Muthappan temple is also on the bank of the river. Kannur District Tourism Council has launched a `Nadi Darshan' (river viewing) programme in association with a private resort at Kattampalli as much as an initiative to popularise the kettuvallam for tourism promotion as also an effort to make people know more about Valapattanam River.[1] Valapattanam River originates from the Brahmagiri Reserve Forest in Karnataka at an altitude of 900-1350m above mean sea level and drains into Kannur district. Major tributaries of this river are the Sreekantapuram River, Bavali River, Veni River, and the Aralam River. Text matter from--- http://en.wikipedia.org

This panorama was taken in India, Asia

This is an overview of Asia

Asia is the biggest continent on Earth, a darling little gem floating around in space.

Hm, what is Asia? Who's in on it?

China and India are safe bets for Asian nations. Korea, Japan, Thailand, you're fine.

Europe? No. Europe would sort of be on the "Asian continent" if not for those pesky Ural mountains dividing things up in the middle, and then also the whole lineage of kings and wealth and nations and the EU and all that "give me my respect" stuff.
Russia would probably be happiest as its own continent, so for now we'll leave it in "Eurasia" and just hope the natural gas supplies keep flowing.

Pakistan and Afghanistan are dang close to Asia, but politically they show up in "Middle East" news stories an awful lot. Verdict: Eurasia.

I guess we'll actually have to consider everything from Turkey on eastward to be "Eurasian", although the moniker seems overlappitory of the territory.

The Asian economy is now officially raging like a wild furnace of lava that consumes everything in its path. Japan has had the largest individual economy in Asia for decades, but it is forecast that both India and China will outstrip Japan within twenty years.

China is the largest holder of United States debt and is positioned to become the world's next superpower, provided that Godzilla doesn't return and decide to stomp everybody back into the Shang Dynasty.
