Kingdom of Gods trail
Trivandrum. The Endless City; Home to the royalty of Travancore; The Fabled City of Gold.
Powerful queens and pious saints, haunted forts and blessed ponds, ghosts and ghastly nobles, great victory and despicable betrayal – it’s all a part of the glorious history of Trivandrum.
A city that dates back to many centuries before Christ, Trivandrum has many stories to tell. Take a walk with Storytrails and learn of the hidden histories, wonderous fables and strange truths that make up this hallowed city. Once dubbed the ‘the City of the Divine Ones’. the Gods may still walk amongst us in Trivandrum. All you need is a little bit of imagination and a good story to help you look beyond every day and reach into the past.
How did the Padhmanabhaswamy temple come to be? Why were the Travancore kings’ consorts never called queens? What treachery caused the western gates of the fort to be haunted? How did a local king defeat the famed Dutch armada?
