Thiruvananthapuram still known by its colonial name Trivandrum is the largest city and the capital of Kerala. A vacation in this evergreen city invites travellers looking for a relaxed vacation to experience its pristine Kovalam beach, long walks under the shade of thousands of coconut and palm trees, rejuvenating ayurvedic massages and unlimited places to visit.
The Shri Padmanabhaswamy Temple is the city's icon with many mythological stories to tell. This architectural wonder is also the richest temple in the world with hidden treasures worth one trillion kept under strong police protection inside its cellars.
The Shanghumukham Beach, Veli Tourist Village, Padmanabhapuram Palace, Kowdiar Palace, Peppara Wildlife Sanctuary, Neyyar Dam, The Kerala Government Secretariat building and The Napier Museum are among the many other attractions in this historic city.
Trivandrum is also home to some of the prestigious educational and technical institutions like the Kerala University, Vikram Sarabhai Space Centre (VSSC), Centre for Development of Advanced Computing (C-DAC), Technopark, the Indian Institute of Space Science and Technology (IIST), College of Engineering Trivandrum (CET) and the Indian Institute of Science, Education and Research (IISER)
This city built on the hills by the seashore between the Western Ghats and the Arabian Sea becomes lively with the sunset. The temples are all brilliantly illuminated and when you walk down the beach, the sight of fishermen getting back to the shore and mending their nets look like scenes from a beautiful painting.
The best time to be here is between the months of September and January. The heat from this tropical place gets washed away by then and it becomes easy to chill. Don't worry if you can't speak Malayalam or Tamil, the warm and friendly people of Trivandrum speak English and Hindi too.
Trivandrum has its own International Airport, Central Rail Junction and KSRTC bus services that connects travellers from major cities and nearby states.
