The evenings are good here. You can listen to AIR having a good breeze with all around lighting. But there can be more entertainment avenues so that there are more place like this to relax in Trivandrum

There were different Museums, Art galleries, a Zoo and an Aquarium in this complex. All these attractions were well maintained, neat and clean. The Natural History Museum is a must visit.

If you are visiting the famed Shree Padmanabhaswamy Temple, do not give this museum a miss. You might get decieved by the entrance to this almost historic museum since it does not bear any of the grandeur that is inside. Once you step inside, allow yourself to be guided by the soft spoken, extremely knowledgeable lady guides to take you... More

I don't know how many times i have been to this place. Perfect place in Trivandrum for an evening walk and get together. It has been like that and will still be like that. Even when the city kept changing this place still keeps its serenity and decorum.

Very nice place to walk thru and 3 main areas to visit which is the zoo, art gallery and the gardens. We visited during holiday season so many school excursions were ongoing so it was very crowded. We gave the zoo a miss as it was quite hot so headed down to the 2 art galleries. Not to be missed

Botanical garden is... More

The museum complex comprises of a huge area which has two museums, an art gallery, a zoo and botanical garden. In addition there are play areas for kids all housed within acres of vibrant coloured flowering plants. A place where you can chill, relax and have a quiet time with nature right at the centre of the city.
