A must on every tourist itinerary, the Padmanabhaswami temple with its gopuram (tower) soaring majestically upwards, is believed to be one of the 108 shrines sacred to the Vaishnavites in India. Within its hallowed precincts, the main pavilion impresses with its 400 beautifully carved pillars of granite. The 100-feet-high gopuram comprises seven stories with each center. The stone basement of the tower is covered with elaborate sculptures and the masonry above is replete with ornamental works of figures from the Puranas and other ancient scriptures. Tapering towards the top, it bears the statue of Garuda, the vehicle of Lord Vishnu. Inside the temple, the main shrine is well guarded with a number of massive doors, and darshan (audience) can be had through the three-door openings into the sanctum sanctorum. Besides this magnificent temple, Thiruvananthapuram offers a great deal more. There is the Observatory to start with, established over a hundred years ago. Several kings have also built their palaces in and around the city, each more impressive than the other. Despite a few attempts at modernity, the city retains its discreet, old-world charm. One can visit the Museum with its profusion of gables and turrets. A repository of fine works of art, the chief attraction here is the 250-year-old temple car made for Lord Vishnu, artistically designed and ornamented. Besides this, objects carved out of wood, models of temple, antique jewelry, etc ., make the museum worth a visit Lying within the museum compound, Sri Chitra Art Gallery proves to be an ideal place for art lovers. The piece the resistance is the large section devoted to the paintings of Raja Ravi Varma, an Indian painter of distinction in the history of the country's modern art. Besides him, the Indian section also contains works of Rabindranath Tagore, Jamimi Roy, K. Hebar, miniatures from the Rajput and Maugham schools of painting and the famous Tanjore paintings encrusted with semi-precious stones. The gallery's collection also includes paintings from Indonesia, China, and Japan. Then, of course, a trip to Thiruvananthapuram is incomplete without a boat-ride on its enchanting backwaters. These waterways teem with life. It is not surprising, since there are more miles of waterways in the state - approximately 1, 900 km to the 1, 000 km of rail. The landscape is dotted with picturesque palms and thatched huts. One can be seduced by the panorama of beautiful landscapes, beaches and waterways, coconut palms and, beautiful, friendly people Two nearby places worth visiting while in Trivandrum are Veli and Shankhumugham; the former has been converted into a superb tourist village while the latter boasts of lovely temples and a huge statue of a mermaid presently being worked upon by a famous sculptor An absolute must is Kovalam that lies barely 18 km away. The beach is considered one of the finest in the world and provides ingredients for an ideal holiday. Besides swimming, there are opportunities for surfing and water skiing - even an exhilarating catamaran ride into the sea.

Green and Beaches

You have TVM for a reason. May it be the beaches in Kovalam or Shangumukham, the museam and zoo in the city or for an evening walk, Alchemy Cafe for 24/7 hunger solutions . Its the perfect blend of green and blue for anyoe who loves travelling. Do take cabs if you are new to the place and don't know the language.

Thiruvanathapuram

Promises a great location and deserves a longer stay. Lots to see. Places on the sea coast very serene. Airport uncomplicated and quick moving through. It is truly part. Of Gods own country. Not anything like one hears of political tensions. People are focused on the work they do . . I would love to go and explore. Lots of options for vegetarian and non-vegetarian food. Even sea food is plentiful. A peaceful place by and large. A city which will see a lot of development in the future . Be sure to know which terminal to go to at the Airport. Always check out the taxi fares. And fares of other means of transport like 3 wheelers - bargaining can be time consuming. Uber and Ola available but had no time to look for them. Best location to head for Kanyakumari! Choose the food and place you wish to eat . Generally a clean city.

Relaxation for the day at this Mall

Visited Mall of Travancore, the first of its kind in the capital city. A special experience in shopping. A new place for food and entertainment. Highly relaxed moments.

Excellent

Overall I found myself in pool of pride that we were having so much of wealth to develop such a monument but same time feeling shame for our existing conditions that we are unable to maintain good infrastructure for the people of such a wealthy country. Excellent structure of old time.

The Dam, The Lion Safari, The Cliff Beach Experience.

Trivandrum is house to the Neyyar Dam. It was a mediocre experience. Lot of locals visiting this place and nothing much for travellers. But if you have to get to the Neyyar Lion Safari Park, you have to go through this Dam.
There is a restaurant but you will have to take about 50+ steps to get there. OK food for a quick trip to the Lion Safari.
The Lion Safari was not at all a pleasant experience as what was expected. You will feel miserable looking at the condition of the Lions and the way they are kept. Also you will be taken in small 11 seater buses that are made like cages but not all comfortable and very bad experience. One can avoid this.
Best part about Trivandrum is the Varkala Beach which is besides a beautiful cliff. Excellent views from the cliff and the beach is so beautiful. Nice tibetan restaurants and many shops on the cliffs. Excellent walk experience on the cliff. Beach is pristine and filled with expats and well maintained. A Must Visit when in Trivandrum.
Also please take out time to visit Padmanabhaswamy Temple which we could not cover but I am sure that will be the Best Experience.

Experience galore

Out of entire visit to different places in Kerala, Trivandrum is one of the best places.

The place is not only good for shopping but also for different types of experiences like Scuba diving and seeing fishermen doing fishing in the morning. We went to the beach adjoining our Samudra resort.. We reached there at 7 am and for two hours we were enjoying seeing 50 fishermen pulling fishing net. We even helped them in pulling rope attached to nets. The experience of watching this is amazing.
