Trivandrum India

Trivandrum, also known by the tongue twister name of Thiruvananthapuram, is the capital of the south Indian state of Kerala. Although not as popular among tourists as the other Kerala city of Kochi, Trivandrum has its own charm. Life here is fairly laid-back and peaceful, somewhat typical of the state itself. Most people use Trivandrum as a quick stopover on their way to the beach resorts of Kovalam or Varkala, but by itself, the city has enough to merit a day or two. It is also a major centre for Ayurveda, along with Kochi.
