Overview

Thiruvananthapuram or Trivandrum is the capital of Kerala and also the third largest city. Located in the south-western tip of peninsular India, Thiruvananthapuram is bordered by Arabian Sea in the west and Western Ghats in the east. 

Thiruvananthapuram city, situated at an average elevation of 6 meters above sea level, is the administrative headquarters of Thiruvananthapuram District. Located on the banks of Karamana and Killi Rivers, it is categorised under Seismic Zone III by the Geological Survey of India.

Thiruvananthapuram got its name from the deity Lord Anantha or Shesha of Sri Padmanabhaswamy Temple of 7th AD, on which Lord Padmanabhaswamy (Vishnu) is seen to be in a reclining pose. 

 As per historical records, Thiruvananthapuram was a famous port city during 1050 BC and it maintained trade relations with the Middle East and Mediterranean countries.

Thiruvananthapuram was submitted to Lord Padmanabhaswamy, the presiding deity of Sri Padmanabhaswamy Temple, and the Rajas of Travancore thence ruled the region on behalf of Lord Padmanabhaswamy as ‘Padmanabhadasas'.

Attukal Pongala is an annual festival which, is held at the Attukal Temple in Thiruvananthapuram every year. The festival is held for 10 days with the ninth day being the most important. It marks the largest gathering of women in the world, for which it holds a Guinness World Record, where boiled rice is offered to the goddess in earthen pots. The presiding deity of the Attukal Temple is Attukal Bhagavathy who is an incarnation of Shakti and the temple is often considered to be the Sabarimala of women.

Another major tourist attraction in Thiruvananthapuram is the Kadammanitta Padayani Festival.

The best time to visit the destination is from November to March.
