Kovalam to Aruvikkara



Kovalam to Aruvikkara is one of the preferred weekend getaways from Kovalam. Situated at just 16 km from Kovalam, Aruvikkara is at the same time a pilgrimage and a picnic spot. The Karamana river flows by Aruvikkara and makes a scenic locale amidst which the deity of Goddess Bhagwathy or Durga resides in a rock cut temple. The shrine, embodying the rule of the female power, attracts devotees from far off villages.

Aruvikkara is also a site of a dam that serves the required water to Trivandrum. The Aruvikkara Dam allows a pleasant walk on it where one can spend hours with the balmy breeze caressing you. The fishes come near the bank of the river near the Bhagwathy temple to be fed by the tourists and devotees.

Near to this site , there is a beautiful waterfall making the spot famous for the day trippers. The nearby Koyikkal Palace in Nedumangad with its Nalukettu dating back to the 15 th century are points of tourist interest.

Tourists from Kovalam to Aruvikkara can also opt for nearby interests like the Numismatics museum and Folklore Museum in Aruvikkara to have an idea of the unique collection.
