First photo taken along the lively Kovalam beach. Trivandram (officially and locally known as
Thiruvananthapuram) is the capital of Kerala and the zoological gardens are located in the grounds of the picturesque Napier Museum. Species from the zoo below are the lion-tailed macaque (local to South India), a gharial (crocodile family, another native Indian species), hippos and a majestic peacock!
