Why Is Trivandrum The Best Place To Live In?

Also known as ‘God’s own Country’, Kerala lies along the southern coast of India, with Trivandrum as its capital city. 

Home to abundant greenery, beaches and rich cultural heritage, it’s been ranked as the top city to live in among the 5 major cities in Kerala – according to a study conducted by the Times Group. 

It has also been ranked as the best city to live in multiple times, by the ASICS (Annual Survey of India’s City Systems) body. This comparative study on quality of life was carried out in 21 Indian states and based on 115 parameters – including law, city administration, the political contribution of citizens, policies and institutional processes.

 In this blog, we will delve into the reasons why Trivandrum is ranked the best place to live in.

Cultural Heritage

Trivandrum is an evergreen city that has been the capital right from the days of the Kingdom of Travancore, when Maharaja Marthanda Varma moved the capital from Padmanapuram in present-day Tamil Nadu, to the current city in 1795. 

Having been a capital for so long has meant that the city is well-developed and has an excellent infrastructure in place that actually works. There are numerous functional iconic buildings in the city left over from the era of the kings too.

Educational Hub

Aside from the numerous places of cultural interests that the yesteryears maharajas constructed, Trivandrum is also famous as an educational hub with a number of premier high schools and colleges based here. 

There is no exaggeration that this city’s schools have also been producing the country’s CBSE toppers for a number of years now.

Social infrastructure in the form of parks, movie theatres, various malls, Nishagandhi auditorium and Vylopilly Samskriti Bhavan are some of the entertainment avenues here.
