Also known as Thiruvananthapuram, the capital of Kerala, Trivandrum has been dubbed the Evergreen City of India for its lush tropical landscapes. Urban travellers will also appreciate that the city is well-connected by its roads and rail network. A prominent pilgrimage destination, it houses several ancient temples, including Padmanabhaswamy Temple, the richest temple in the world, and Attukal Bhagavathy Temple, the site of the famous Attukal Pongala festival which sees millions of female devotees participating every year.
Coimbatore is one of India’s largest centres for textiles and manufacturing. A flourishing industrial city in Tamil Nadu, Coimbatore also has a reputation as a hub for entrepreneurs and start-ups. The city is surrounded by the Western Ghats, a majestic mountain range and a UNESCO World Heritage Site containing the beautiful Siruvani Waterfalls, a must-see for tourists to the region.
Visakhapatnam, or Vizag, is Andhra Pradesh’s largest city and one of the fastest growing cities in the world. It is also a major tourist hub, famed for its geo-heritage sites, including Erra Matti Dibbalu, the rare Red Sand Hills, and the massive ancient Borra Caves. Vizag’s beautiful beaches are one of its top attractions for both locals and tourists, and make for perfect settings for picnics, early morning jogs and a fun-filled family day out.
