On the periphery of Thiruvananthapuram is the Aruvikkara Dam, which serves as an important source of clean drinking water to the residents of the city.

Located on the banks of River Karamana, it is a scenic picnic spot where visitors can enjoy a boat ride in a stream full of fish. You can also take a stroll through the lovely park that has been laid out near Aruvikkara, and spend some time by the artificial waterfall that has been built inside it. The park is shaded by tall trees, allowing a respite from the hot Kerala sun.

Another visit-worthy attraction nearby is the Bhagvathi Temple, dedicated to Goddess Durga that is built on a rock on the banks of River Karamana. In the evenings, you can witness a serene sunset, something that photographers will find especially beguiling.
