Trivandrum Travel Guide

Trivandrum, the capital of beautiful Kerala lies in the southwest coast of India. The city is officially known as Thiruvananthapuram. The city gets its name from the word, Thiruvananthapuram, meaning the city of Anantha or the abode of the sacred Serpent Anantha on which Lord Vishnu, the preserver of the Hindu trinity, reclines. Trivandrum is a beautiful seaside city built on seven hills. The city of Trivandrum has a prominent history. Trade had started in the place as far back as 190 AD. It was the capital of the erstwhile Travancore state. After independence, it was made the capital of Kerala.

Being a coastal city, Trivandrum has a tropical climate. Although the place encounters sultry climate during summer, tourists start flocking in from moonsoon onwards. The temperature becomes very soothing during winters.

Apart from the national destinations, the city is also connected to international destinations like Colombo, Malé, Singapore and cities of Arabian Gulf. Thiruvananthapuram is well connected to most other places of India by train. Being the capital city, road communication to the place is excellent.

A shrine sacred to the Vaishnavites, the Padmanabhaswami temple is thronged by devotees from all over the country. The main attraction of the temple are its 400 beautifully carved pillars of granite and a 100-feet-high gopuram. One can enter the sanctum sanctorum through a three-door opening. Many palaces also adorn the landscape of the place.

The Indian section of the gallery also displays the paintings of Rabindranath Tagore, K. K. Hebar, Jamimi Roy and a few others.

The Backwater Boat Rides

A trip to Thiruvananthapuram is regarded as incomplete without a boat-ride on its sparkling backwaters.The backwater banks are dotted with picturesque palm trees and thatched huts.

Health Tourism - the Resorts and Ayurvedic Centres Another of Trivandrum's attraction is its famous health resorts and specialised centres of ayurveda. International tourists also come in great numbers to avail the famous ayurvedic treatment here.

Excursion Delights

Veli and Shankhumuggam are two places that are worth a visit for tourists while in Trivandrum.
