Where to Stay in Thiruvananthapuram

Also known as Trivandrum, Thiruvananthapuram is the capital of the southern Indian state of Kerala and is distinguished by its British colonial architecture and several art galleries.

Thiruvananthapuram is a popular holiday destination thanks in part to its exotic location with palm trees, coconut trees and golden beaches along its shoreline. Veli Beach is a popular spot for watching fishermen returning with their catch, while families enjoy coming together in the wooded areas of the Ghats for picnics and relaxation.

The Sree Padmanabha Swamy Temple is the main icon of the city and is one of the oldest temples in India. Surrounded by seven low hills, the temple features intricate carved sculptures and large collections of temple mural paintings that give an insight into the city's ancient past.

Getting around the city is straightforward with the bus service being the most common and economical, while taxis, autorickshaws and motorcycles are also options. Walking is also a safe way of getting around the city center, while visitors can also rent a car in Thiruvananthapuram.

I think Trivandrum is underrated as a city, as I see a lot of travelers landing and leaving without exploring the area. There are some really lovely restaurants, parks, and markets to see. I recommend at least a day or two here.


Trivandrum is amazing .. The whole place looks green every where .. So good .. Must try with family and friends ..

So many travelers on arriving to Trivandrum, the largest city in Kerala is to move on to the more glorious beach areas like Kovala right away. But the city has a nice vibe, some very good restaurants and interesting architecture. So take a day or two (if you have the time) before hitting the beach if you can.
