seas…silvery sand beaches…intricately decorated temples…limitless stretches
of greenery… mist shrouded mountains…art galleries and museums…feasts and parades…Your
voyage of Kerala begins in Thiruvananthapuram, the capital of Kerala, where
history has a character and royalty has a charm. A city where the beautiful
shadows of the past coexist with the present. A city that is calm and yet teeming
with vigour. A city where tradition and modernity coexist beautifully.
Thiruvananthapuram is named after the sacred serpent Anantha or Adisesha on which Lord Padmanabha reclines. The Anantha Padmanaswamy temple is the most famous landmark of the city.
