Thiruvananthapuram has plenty to offer international visitors.
Thiruvananthapuram will become the fifth airport in India with the authority to offer tourist visa on arrivals for an expanded number of countries.
It joins the airports in Delhi, Mumbai, Chennai and Kolkata – the traditional visitor hubs in the Asian nation.
Tourists from the UK have long-been able to pick up the documentation, but it is symbolic of the country’s new found desire to open its gates to the world.
And that can only be a good thing because India is a country that offers a holiday experience like no other.
This is especially true in Thiruvananthapuram.
The city is the capital of the state of Kerala – known as God’s Own Country in India – and as such has a host of important religious monuments to complement its stunning scenery.
A temple devoted to Lord Anantha called The Sri Padmanabhaswamy Temple is one of the most spectacular of these, but there are countless others.
