The capital of Kerala in India, Thiruvananthapuram (aka Trivandrum), is set on seven low hills close to the Arabian Sea. Widely known as Trivandrum, it has wide roads, offices and white office blocks but also has enclaves of traditional red-tiled gabled houses and vast parklands north of its center. One of the city’s best museums, the Puttan Malika Palace, is in the Fort area to the south, as is the Chalai Bazaar, which is a typically Keralan market. On the northern side are the Sri Chitra Art Gallery and Napier Museums, which house paintings, crafts and sculptures in a cool, green park.
