Trivandrum is not a big destination and not that much of attractive too, but I choose this precious land for sweet Kerala trip. Because the destination has a set of things which fascinate me a lot and there have some magnetizing power to attract backpackers into there. My long journey one of the memorable experience in my life, I start it from the central railway station of Trivandrum then I went to check in. I don’t like to disclose the name of the resort which I stayed, because I think I convey all those good memories which I got from Trivandrum, and I never make this blog as a publicity of the hotel and others. The trip was so stunning and enthusiastic too. Before I start my journey I kept lot of attractions in my mind which include Napier museum, zoo, Kovalam, veli, ISRO, Attukal temple, Padmanabhaswamy temple, Agasthyarkoodam, Ponmudi and the entire Trivandrum city too. Thank you god to create such an awesome land and allow us to be a part of it.
During my journey or my fantastic Kerala tour packages I suffer a lot, because I can’t understand the communication slang between the Trivandrum peoples. Because I lived so long in Banglore and I possess little more difficult to understand the slang. The entire city was so stunning and I happy to watch various attractions like secretariat and other notable things. I feel so much happy and fun to travel like this. Then I went to the popular Napier museum and zoo, the exotic attractions situated in the heart of the city, was really awful and stunning too. Napier museum was established in 1855, and the name remembers the madras governor Lord Napier during the British era. The construction was thoroughly based on indo-Saracen style and it boasts a natural air condition system. And the museum contains rare collections of archeological and historic artifact, temple chariots, traditional ornaments and bronze idols. Sri Chitra art gallery is another attraction in which I visited, which contains precious collections of Raja Ravi Varma and Nicholas Roerich. Along with museum the zoo is so much impressive, which contains various wild animals, rare species of birds and other organisms too. I like each and every small funs, which I got from my happy journey.
Then I move to ISRO (Indian Space Research Organization), the centre had its beginnings as the Thumba Equatorial Rocket Launching Station (TERLS) in 1962. It was renamed in respect of Dr. Vikram Sarabhai, often consider as the father of the Indian space program. The center which located in a large space and there is something which we want to watch and understanding. Then the same day I made my visit to Priyadarshini, the stunning planetarium. Oh my goodness I really wonder, because this was my first experience to watch out a planetarium. The awesome view of space from the studio inside the planetarium really stunning and make me fabulous. I really feel glad to select this was my destination and feel proud too. Then I add little more sacredness to my trip through Attukal temple and Padmanabhaswamy temple and etc. Attukal Devi temple is so much precious for its Pongala festival, and it figured on the Guinness book of world record for being single festival gathering women largely. During the Pongala day, Women’s were coming to this temple from all over Kerala. The temple is also celebrate other festivals include Mandala vratham, Pooja vaypu, sivarathri, Aishwarya pooja, Ayilya pooja and vinayaka chathurthi. Sri Padmanabhaswamy temple is a popular temple complex; the temple has well and elaborated history and cultural background. The temple has great history from the 8th century and its construction is a blending of Kerala and Dravidian architectural styles. The temple offers two major festivals over a year include Alpashy festival and Panguni festival. The Alpashy festival is occurred during the month of October or November and the Panguni is a 10 days festival occurred in March or April. The temples together with its surrounding buildings are visual treat for visitors, its raw materials uses stone and bronze also the walls are decorated with paintings and murals. St. Joseph’s Cathedral is also known as Palayam Palli, a well known archdiocese in Trivandrum. The cathedral is a structural beauty of white building decorated with three different bells and is brought from Belgium during the early stages. The bell has named after well known priests Joseph, Xavier and Aloysius. It’s a popular pilgrim center of Christian community.
Then I move to the highly popular beach in Kerala, which is none other than Kovalam and make it as really fun. Beautiful white sands are flourished in the shore of Kovalam, and the beach is also popular for delicious sea foods. Prawns, shrimps crabs and squids are the easily available sea foods in this region. Kovalam is a celebrated beach, its bluish water and white sands makes a stunning color combination. The light house beach is another dramatic location, its green palm trees and golden sands are stunning attraction. The visitors can climb up to the tower through the spiral staircase and feel the extravagant view of the ambiance. Kovalam is just more than its beauty, it’s up to date amenities support the tourism very well. Ayurvedic health resorts, convention facilities, shopping zones, yoga and Ayurvedic massage centers, swimming pools and different budget cottages are all make Kovalam one of the fastest growing tourist destinations in India. Kovalam beaches are also popular because of their capacity and style of the beach activities include sunbathing, kayaking, wind surfing, water skiing, swimming, catamaran cruising, boat sailing and Para- sailing and stunning location.
Finally I visit Ponmudi the eye catching hill station and exotic too. Ponmudi often called ‘the golden peak’ and the climate is pleasant over the year so anyone can visit this place at any season. Ponmudi Mountain is too much beautiful during its morning view is awesome. The location is perfect for trekking and hiking also. and I miss my courageous friends at that time, because they are always ready to be with me for my crazy habits like trekking and all. This was one of my favorite spot in my Kerala Travel Packages. The precipice ranges support this amusement very well. Kallar and Meenmutty are the two major waterfalls located here and its milky and fresh water scenery is perfect for photography. Peppara wild life sanctuary is located on the outskirts of Ponmudi and it is home for various wild lives like Asian elephants, sambar, leopards, lion-tailed macaques and Malabar grey hornbills. Finally I return from my trip, to think that need to get another stunning trip mostly be a trekking, to the attractive Bonacaud, it is the base station of the incredible peak Agasthyarkoodam. And the location is filled with fresh air and frozen winds. On the way to Bonacaud, both sides of the roads are crammed with various species of plants and trees. The place is just a wonderland which consist long greenish tea plantations. The well known Bonacaud waterfall and Vazhuvanchola waterfalls are also here. The Bonacaud is one of the tremendous travel destinations and I wish hardly to get this.
