Thiruvananthapuram being a name difficult to pronounce and impossible to remember, the English quickly renamed this city in Trivandrum. Capital of Kerala, it is remarkable for its sculpted temples and its wooden palace


We were in Trivandrum (decidedly, Thiruvananthapuram is very difficult to remember for a Westerner) the day when young girls had to appear for an artistic examination at the palace.

On the program, dance and vina.

Unfortunately we could not attend the show which must have been magnificent if we are to believe the sounds that escaped into the street.



about the place, Trivandrum:

Thiruvananthapuram is the capital of the state of Kerala in South India. With its population of nearly one million, the city is the most populous in Kerala. is also the one whose name is the most difficult to remember ...

The city's economy is based in part on the computer industry. It is one of the major software development centers in India.
