Post by : favouritehomes
There is a reason why Kerala is known as ‘God’s Own Country’. Its the abundance of lush greenery and bounty of lakes and rivers that gleam like jewels in the sun in this land. Combine this with uninterrupted miles of beautiful beaches and you have a breathtaking view that beckons you to come settle down and grow roots here.
Steeped in culture and history, Trivandrum is the capital city of Kerala, a place like no other. Unlike other cities, Trivandrum is still growing horizontally, bringing more areas into its folds from the outer fringes. One of the best neighbourhoods to settle down here is in Kowdiar. Home to the royal family for many centuries past, Kowdiar is one of the cleanest and greenest parts of the city. The royal family of the erstwhile Kingdom of Travancore is still in residence here in the elegant Kowdiar palace.
Neighbourhood – Kowdiar is connected to its neighbouring localities including Vellayambalam and Peroorkada by the wide, tree-lined SH 45 avenues. The cost of real estate here is on the steeper side with the only way of owning a prestigious address here being by investing in one of the classy apartment projects available. It goes without saying that the apartment projects here are on the posh side, in keeping with this upscale residential area.
Infrastructure – What makes Kowdiar the perfect place to set up home is the easy accessibility of a number of a government offices, premier schools and some of the best hospitals. Other nearby places of attraction include the sprawling zoo, the huge museum complex with its art galleries, children’s park and an oval inner road that is popular for evening strolls. There are numerous cinema halls, malls and other shopping complexes within a short radius too.
