Thiruvananthapuram (Trivandrum)

Thiruvananthapuram , Kerala

Trivandrum is the capital city of Keralafor good reason. One of the cities that is characterised by the rolling hills and busy commercial alley, this is also one of the fastest developing cities in the country. Mahatma Gandhi called this place the “Evergreen City of India”. One of the top ten green cities in India it is also ranked as the best city to live in, in Kerala. The city literally means the city of the lord Anantha. Anantha is the serpent Shesh on which Lord Vishnu resides. This is the icon that is continuously maintained in the city. This temple of Vishnu reclining on Anantha remains the iconic landmark of the city. It is estimated that the value of the monumental items and assets of the temple partially revealed are close to 100,000 crore, making it the richest temple in the world. This is definitely one of the most beautiful temples that you will ever get to visit and it makes this whole place a very grand city indeed. The trade relations of Trivandrum go way back. It is said to have traded with King Solomon himself long ago. However, the ancient political and cultural history of the city was almost entirely independent from that of the rest of Kerala. This was a completely different and a very rich place for as long as it has existed. Today this is a place that is truly taking development to a next level and making sure that the future of the country is secure. There are many tourist destinations in the city including Kovalam beach, Sanghumukham Beach, , Agasthyarkoodam peak, Neyyar Wild life sanctuary and Neyyar Dam, , Ponmudi, Poovar, Varkala Cliffs and Beaches and many others. It is definitely a lovely place to visit.
