East Fort, the meeting place of Trivandrum

East Fort is a Bus stand where almost all the buses meets and starts the journey. From here you can go to almost anywhere in Trivandrum. All the local sightseeing destinations are linked to this place. The nearest destination to this place is Padmanabha Swamy Temple, which is at a walkable distance.

Just a simple wall gate with market nearby

Not required to specifically visit this place, you will anyhow automatically see Eastfort if you even come to Padmanabha Temple or go shopping. What I will recommend is that just take a stroll all around and outside the Padmanabha temple. You can see all the four gates of the ie Eastfort, Westfort, North Fort and Southfort.

A destination for shopping

East fort is the final destination for shopping. There is a big market for purchasing everything with best brands. It is the easiest place to reach from the hotel. It takes so much time to visit.
