Advantages of Living in the Capital City of Kerala
Also known as ‘Gods own country’, the narrow strip of coastal land that makes up Kerala, has been in the limelight for many reasons. Its 580km-long coastline strewn with uncountable beautiful beaches makes Kerala a popular tourist destination too. Trivandrum is the capital city of this verdant state, and has a royal lineage of being the state capital since 1795 AD under the rule of the Maharajas of the Kingdom of Travancore.
Having been the seat of governance for so long, the city is very well developed. And as a state capital that plays host to highly-placed dignitaries, the infrastructure on ground in Trivandrum understandably far exceeds other cities too. Interestingly, the city is still in an expanding phase, with both vertical and horizontal growth in its pipeline – when compared with other cities in Kerala.
Trivandrum is a beautiful place to live in too, with the city being nestled over seven gently undulating green hills with many a river meandering through it. Trivandrum is sandwiched between the mysterious Western Ghats on its eastern side and the Arabian Sea on its western side. The sublime climate here also means abundant greenery and numerous nature spots like Thenmala, Shendurney Wildlife Park, Neyyar Dam, Lion Park and scenic lakes and backwaters for tourism. Numerous sun-bleached beaches dot Trivandrum, making for great weekend getaways. Many of these beaches are still untouched and pristine.
Polls conducted by the Annual Survey of India’s City Systems organization showed that Trivandrum has been winning hands down in a row, amongst 21 Indian cities – when it comes to the best city to live in. The survey was carried out based on 115 parameters such as quality of life and prevalent policies, laws and institutional processes. And with Trivandrum being a comparatively smaller city, it’s easier to manage the facilities here, making it a better place to live in.
Good infrastructure is integral to ease of living, and Trivandrum is blessed with a comparatively better infrastructural setup. The city has a very efficient road and transportation system in place, making it a boon for its inhabitants. Traffic congestions are almost never heard of and intra-city commutes are a smooth experience. Aside from a good road network, Trivandrum also has three railway stations and an international airport within the city precincts. The newly-constructed NH66 is also leading to further expansion of the city, with some of the best luxury flats in Trivandrum being located along it.
India’s largest IT park (in terms of area) is also located in Trivandrum and acts as a magnet, attracting people from all parts of the country and abroad to come build a career here. Most of these people end-up buying a home and settling down here, enthralled by the charm of the city!
Technopark opened its doors in 1990, providing 5000 direct jobs and 20,000 indirect jobs. Today, this IT hub has expanded substantially, providing over 70,000 direct jobs and 2,00,000+ indirect jobs! It has also led to so much development within the city too as the need for luxury apartments in Trivandrum has been growing exponentially. Along with it, a millennial cultural revolution is taking place, with many malls and international chains setting up shop here too!
The capital city is also excellent for bringing up your family. Its well-known for its premier educational institutions right from school to university levels. Many of the colleges here were set up by the Maharajas themselves and are still standing tall. Interestingly, Trivandrum schools are also known to be the toppers across the country as they garner the best results in CBSE board exams!
This is an obvious advantage as you wouldn’t have to waste a couple of days to travel all the way from other cities just to get some work done at the secretariat. Living within Trivandrum puts you at a greater advantage here! It also means that the safety and security system work better here, especially for women’s safety. You will find She-police, She-taxis and She-autos here, all designed to improve women safety.
The local people are also very cultured, peaceful and conversant in English, Hindi and Malayalam, thus making it easy to integrate the insurgent population.
