Thiruvananthapuram literally means 'the abode of Anantha', the snake God. Hindu God Vishnu is said to rest on this huge serpent. The main attraction of the city, not surprisingly then, is the Sri Padmanabhaswamy Temple. Dedicated to Vishnu (also known as Padmanabha) reclining on the snake Anantha, the imposing gopuram (gateway tower) and intricate sculptures of the temple make it a very popular tourist attraction.
