The capital city of Kerala is Trivandrum, or also known by its new name Thiruvananthapuram. It is a relatively clean and laid back city and is very close to the south edge of the southern border with the state of Tamil Nadu. As in a capital city there are many magnificent public buildings, hospitals, and green leafy streets. The city holds less attraction for tourists but if you happen to spend some time there here are some sites that you can visit: The zoological gardens, the Sri Padmanabhaswamy Temple, the Puthe Maliga Palace Museum and Connemara Market. Trivandrum is an ideal place to study traditional south Indian arts including yoga (Sivananda Ashram is just out of town), Kathakali (traditional performance arts) and Kalaripayattu (Keralan martial arts)

Busy bustling South Indian city with an unpronounceable name. Most people just call it Trivy! Nearby, the Sivananda Neyaar Dam yoga ashram is popular with foreigners and offers yoga vacations (3-14 days) and yoga teacher training.
