About TRIVANDRUM.

Trivandrum, now called Thiruvananthapuram, is the capital of Kerala and located at the south-western tip of India. It is bound by the Arabian Sea on the west and the state of Tamil Nadu on the east. The wooded highlands in the eastern and north-eastern borders give it some enchanting picnic spots and a long and beautiful shoreline. Internationally renowned beaches, historic monuments, backwater stretches and a rich cultural heritage make this district a much sought-after tourist destination.
