Sree Padmanabhaswamy Temple

Sree Padmanabhaswamy Temple is a Hindu temple dedicated to Lord Vishnu and situated on the edge of the Padma Theertha Pond. The temple has two main attractions; the Gopuram which is a seven-tier, 100-meter (30-feet) tall structure; and the Garbagriha, where the idol of Lord Vishnu is placed. The temple and its premises gained prominence during the reign of the Travancore dynasty and a fort was built around it with the temple at its center. The Padmanabhaswamy Temple is one of the most popular landmarks of the city, where you will see people gather to offer their prayers. A definite must visit to witness the religious and cultural scene of the city.

Lighthouse Beach

The Lighthouse Beach beach is rightly named after the Kovalam Lighthouse which overlooks its ivory white sands and turquoise waters of the Lakshadweep Sea. Lined with palm trees and always breezy, the Lighthouse Beach comes recommended during summers and monsoons alike. If you are here when the sun is shining brightly, head out into the deep blue and frolic in the waves. Rains are best enjoyed at the coast at one of the many shacks serving piping hot seafood. A number of water sports are carried out at the beach, of which paragliding comes most recommended if you wish to soak in an amazing view of the beach town. Those here with someone special, they can skip the day time and head out to the Lighthouse Beach to see the sun go down.

Napier Museum

Named after the former Madras governor Lord Napier, the museum is an architecturally well-planned structure under the supervision of the architect, Chisholm. Built during the reign of the Travancore dynasty, Napier Museum displays fine art works and rare archaeological artifacts that include ancient ivory carvings. Other exhibits include stone carvings, antique jewelry and ornaments. The 19th-Century marvel with an Indo- Saracenic style is particularly impressive to history buffs. Also, within the same museum compound, is an art gallery and a zoo, which is also worth a visit.
