Trivandrum or Thiruvananthapuram assumes its name from the several thousand years old deity of Sree Anantha Padmanabhaswamy Temple. Once a vibrant trading post for spices, sandalwood and ivory, the city is an erstwhile British colony distinguished by stellar examples of architecture and art galleries. Modern Trivandrum is the cradle of India’s space program, from where India’s first space rocket was launched in 1963. From bustling local markets that have kept the legacy of spice trading alive, and beautiful wildlife sanctuaries that line the city’s outskirts, Trivandrum has much to offer. One of the best known assets in the area is certainly the serene Kovalam beach with its towering lighthouse, which has shown the way to trading ships for centuries, and still welcomes visitors to its several wellness and Ayurveda retreats.
