Sitting proudly at the southern tip of the Indian mainland, Thiruvananthapuram, sometimes known under its colonial name of Trivandrum, is the energetic capital of the state of Kerala. Nestled between the Western Ghats and the Arabian Sea, the city is spread across undulating coastal hills and crisscrossed with busy commercial alleys. Affectionately known as the ‘Evergreen City of India’ because of its intense green landscapes and many public parks, Thiruvananthapuram is also known for its captivating British Colonial architecture. A combination of Keralite architectural traditions with British and Dravidian influences creates an eclectic and enticing ambience. This historical city has in fact been a trading post for spices, sandalwood and ivory since the early centuries AD, and displays cultural influences from the Middle East, France, Portugal and the Netherlands amongst others! Good food and Ayurveda complement this environment to perfection.
Thiruvananthapuram is well connected through flights, trains, taxis and other modes of transportation
