    The Golden Sand Beach.... the estuary.... the floating restaurant... the back waters... The experience has been really good. The tranquility of the whole area seeps into our senses,. It's a very calming few hours that one spends in the lap of mother nature.

    Very nice place for kids and family. Everyone equally enjoyed the amazing place. All the people here are very courteous , explains really well.
    We were so happy to see the diifertially abled children to play various songs, Dances and magic. We felt that our loud claps and actions made them very happy.
    This place is package of different magic shows and drama mixed with magic. Whole place is neatly managed and well organized.
    This place needs lot of support from us so that this initiative helps lot of special kids and make them empowered.
    Thank you Muthukadu sir for this initiative and never give up attitude and make this place run smoothly.
    Seeing the joy of those kids were the best day of my life.

    This attraction was visited during our spare time, before catching our flight. We were happy to find lot of improvements over the year. A huge statue of mermaid also greets visitors. Activities of fishermen, close to the beach is a must see, in case you visit this place.

    Azhimala in Vizhinjam (The new seaport) Thiruvananthapuram is a picturesque, idyllic hamlet dotted with fishing boats and an ambiance reverberating with palpable divinity. The main attraction here is the 58 feet tall Lord Shiva statue at the Rangadeeswara temple. The statue was unveiled for the public a few months ago, and its pictures and videos have gone viral. It is the tallest Shiva statue in Kerala. The man behind the statue is Mr. Devaduttan, who has toiled for more than six years to complete it. The statue has since then been attracting a steady stream of visitors. I went there to have a closer look, and though the sun is scorching, the cool breeze in the shade of the statue was refreshing. The crowds were thin because of the pandemic, and I have managed to interview the sculptor himself. He tells me that he loves Lord Shiva with all humility and the statue is his way of expressing it. Go and see the statue and come back with a sense of peace within your soul. Vizhinjam now is not just a port but a center of attraction for Lord Shiva. Get blessed!

    PS: No restriction in dress code, unlike Padmanabha Swamy temple! Enough car parking is available

    The 3 D presentation in the theater is great with good commentary. The location is great behind the old PMG and the displays outside the theater is quite communicative without the help of guides. It is an excellent place to visit for both adults and children. The staff right from the security onwards are very helpful. The large parking area available within the property too is a big plus. The only negative point is the configuration of seats in the 3D theater. Even a person with a height of 165 cm will find the seat cramped and may even get injured is the person in the front pushes back his/her seat suddenly. The reconfiguration of the seats is an urgent need in the theater.

    A great place to experience traditional kerala architecture and to immerse yourself in the history of travancore since the chithralaya art gallery is nearby. The collection of ancient chola bronze statues, ancient porcelain, weapons etc are interesting. Intricate wood carvings are really wonderful to explore.

    Plenty of pay and park spaces avilable nearby. Located very close to the esteemed padmanabhaswamy temple

    It was nice experience. Kerala GOVT initiated trekking program for 3 days. Its open only one in year during Jan to Feb. It is like winning lottery to get online tickets. This time all tickets are sold out in, 5 minutes.
    Day 1 we are, group of 15 members, starting from banacadu picket station at 10.00 am. Its almost 17km to reach the base camp. First 8000 steps its easy to walk, then the real trekking on mood.
    Day 2 starting at 7.00 am to the peak of agasthar hills, almost 7 km, but its like 100 km walking. Deep elevation from starting itself. Slow trekker can reach the top around 11.00am. View from top is marvellous and climate and heavy wind.
    Day 3 walking back to bonaucad and can reach by 12.00 pm.

    Stay and food at base camp is a memorable experience. All rich and poor have the same service and facilities.

    Should experience this once in life time❤❤❤
