Culture of thiruvananthapuram

Thiruvananthapuram as a city has a wealth of cultural heritage. This developed because of the rulers of Travancore who encouraged and adopted the use of arts and literature at their courts and had made Thiruvananthapuram their capital. As a result of which, many painters, sculptors, and musicians come from this town. Maharaja Swathi Thirunal and Raja Ravi Varma were accomplished artists themselves. \nThe Swathi Tirunal College of Music and Fine Arts is considered one of the best Institutions in the country for further studies in Carnatic music. The influence of art is also evident throughout the city like sculptor Kanayi Kunhiraman's Mermaid on the Shankumugham beach, which is a marvel in itself. Thiruvananthapuram also has many shows and conferences related to forms of art, both eastern and western, throughout the year. The largest local festival celebrated here is Onam, during the months of August or September. There are vivid cultural activities including food exhibitions that take place during this time. Some of the cuisines of Thiruvananthapuram are Malabar-style food, Kuttanad, Keralite cuisine as well as other types of world cuisines.
