  • Amazing view and fresh air. Have a renovated play area for kids. Bamboo huts and the walk through the bamboo bridge connecting to the hilltop is a wonderful experience. Best to visit in evenings.

  • Madavoorpara Siva temple is a rock cut temple located in the outskirts of Trivandrum city. This temple is an ancient one dating back to 850 A.D. The temple and the surroundings are now under the protection of the State Archaeological Department. The temple has a carved idol of Lord Siva and a carving of Ganapathi on the wall in the right side. There is also a carving of the local chieftain on the left side of the temple. Madavoorpara was a relatively unknown destination even for locals until recently, but now after some articles in the local newspapers and media, the place is witnessing an increasing influx of visitors, especially during the weekends. There is a small park at the top of the rock. A bamboo bridge 101 meters long has been constructed by the State Archaeological Department to take people to the hut on top of the hill. Needless to say, the view from atop the rock is simply awesome. You can see the city blending with the outskirts from the top and also a view of the sea. The whole area gets a golden hue at the time of twilight which is simply awesome to witness. The board at the bottom of the steps leading to the temple stating that this is a protected monument and under the State Archaeological Department. Location & Route:- Now there are actually three routes from Trivandrum to Madavoorpara. 1) Trivandrum - Sreekaryam - Chempazhanthy - Kattayikonam - Madavoorpara 2) Take the Powdikonam - Pothencode route from Sreekaryam. After 8 km through this road comes Santhipuram. Take a left turn from this junction. After 2 km along this road, you will reach Madavoorpara. One advantage of this route is that you don't have to climb up the rock. 3) Take the bye-pass road to Kazhakuttom. From Kazhakuttom take the new road to Venjaramood. Take a right turn from Kattayikonam. Travel along this road for about 1 km and Madavoorpara comes up along the left side. There is a such a road on the left side which leads to the place.
  • The cave temple at 'Madavoorpara' is believed to have been built around the 8th century A.D. Today, more important than the cave temple, 'Madavoorpara' is being developed to become a perfect recreational spot for those who would want to take a breather from the daily chores of life and spend some time sitting far above all the noise and pollution and observe life from a distant perspective. Ambiance and silence is what you will get its more than something you have ever visited, the temple is where you have to visit which is the only rockcut temple of lord shiva in kerala
