Thiruvananthapuram (Malayalamതിരുവനന്തപുരം, tiruvaṉantapuraṁ ?, IPA: [t̪iruʋənɨn̪t̪əpurəm]( listen)), formerly known as Trivandrum, is the capital of the Indian state of Kerala and the headquarters of the Thiruvananthapuram District. It is located on the west coast of India near the extreme south of the mainland. Referred to by Mahatma Gandhi as the "Evergreen city of India",[3] the city is characterized by its undulating terrain of low coastal hills and busy commercial alleys.[4]With almost 745,000 inhabitants per the 2001 census, it is the largest and most populous city in Kerala; the wider urban agglomeration has a population of more than one million. [5][6] Apart from being the IT hub of the state with over 80% of the state's software exports,[7][8] Thiruvananthapuram ranks first in the number of international tourists in Kerala also.[9][10]
