Trivandrum is the coastal capital city of Kerala with a history that can be traced back to 1036 BCE when the famed King Solomon’s ships used to land in Poovar for trading purposes. In those days, the city was a trading post for spices, ivory, and sandalwood.
The modern history of Trivandrum starts in the late 17nth century when Maharaja Marthanda Varma created the princely state of Thiruvithamkoor with its capital being Trivandrum. The Maharaja also dedicated the kingdom to the deity Sri Padmanabha and ruled as the servant of this deity. The golden era of the city was in the mid-19nth century and saw the establishment of the very first English school, the Observatory, the General Hospital, and the first mental hospital. Other establishments that were also started around the same time and are still in existence today include the University College, the Law College, Sanskrit College, Ayurveda College, and a women’s college.
This groundwork has led to the city being considered as an educational hub, aside from a political center. Being the capital city also means that the infrastructure available here is the best and that the system works. In posh areas of the central city like Vazhuthacaud, you will find excellent roads, great neighborhoods with regular electricity and water supply. You won’t find pollution here, just excellent infrastructure and the homes of the ‘who’s who’ of society.

It is strategically located just 2km away from the Statue Junction, the political nerve center of the city.
