Tours to Thrissur
If Thiruvanathapuram is the political capital of Kerala, you can call Trichur or Trissur -- the Cultural capital of Kerala. This place developed under the reign of Raja Rama Varma in 1790, exudes an aura of religious heritage, artistic splendor and cultural richness. Perhaps that is why tours to Thrissur , a popular tourist site in Kerala , are always marked by a difference. Especially the annual eight day festival called Thrissur Pooram, has redefined the concept of tourism in Kerala .
Thrissur in Kerala, derives its name from a combination of Malayalam words- Tiru-Siva-Peroor , which mean the city bearing the holy name of Lord Shiva. Many rulers and dynasties beginning with the Zamorins of Kozhikode, Tipu Sultan of Mysore and Europeans including the Dutch and the British have impressed themselves into the history of this town.
