Not often will you find multiple tourist attractions within one area. Imagine having a historical museum building with an adjoined full-fledged zoo! How convenient it is. At Thiruvananthapuram, you will come across the Napier Museum complex which gives you this advantage. Located centrally, right in the bustling heart of the city, the Napier Museum complex is where local people come for daily recreational purposes and tourists arrive to enjoy multifarious experiences. It can rightly be described as a place of peace right in the middle of a busy city.
The Museum was built in the 19th century and displays many historical artefacts from the bygone eras such as ivory carvings, ornaments, bronze idols and so on. One of the amazing things on display is the Japanese shadow-play leather that is used to depict the epics of the Mahabharata and Ramayana. Named after the former Madras Governor General John Napier, the museum is rich in an elegant mix of Indian, Chinese, Kerala and Mughal Schools of Architecture.
The museum compound also houses the Natural History Museum, one of India’s oldest zoological gardens which is known as the Trivandrum Zoo, Art Museum, Art Gallery, Sree Chithra Enclave, KCS Panicker Gallery, Aquarium and 3D Theatre.
