Located at the south-western tip, Thiruvananthapuram (Trivandrum), the capital city of Kerala, The God's Own Country, offers an appealing blend of strongly rooted heritage and a nostalgic colonial legacy, spanning an area of about 2192 sq.km, easily accessible by the means of road, rail and airways. The city has been named after Lord Anantha Padmanabhan, Lord Maha Vishnu. The Padmanabhaswamy temple at Thiruvananthapuram, is a must-visit temple of India with the 18-feet high idol of Lord Vishnu, which stands out for its striking mix of Kerala and Dravidian style architecture, showcasing a sublime artistic temperament. Bordered by Arabian Sea in the west, the city holds long sandy shorelines, lush green landscapes and a rich social and cultural legacy. Built upon seven hills, this city has long since left the days when it was only used by seafaring explorers behind; today, Thiruvananthapuram is a swanky metropolis with a quaint urban charm and an immaculate mix of eye soothing visual frames and fascinating cultural and architectural legacy with innumerous temples, serving as an ideal tourist destination.
