Kaviyoor

 
 
Located on the banks of the Manimala river, the Kaviyoor temple and the rock-cut temple nearby are of great archaeological importance. The stone figuress here are considered to be the earliest specimen of stone culture.
Located 18 km from Trivandrum on the way to the Ponmudi hillstation and the Kuttalam waterfalls, this ancient place that dates back to the 15th century, is famous in the history of Kerala as the official residence of Perakom Thavazhi (the maternal lineage), especially of Umayamma Rani of the Venad royal family. Here you can see a double storeyed traditional Nalukettu building with slanting gabled roofs, an inner courtyard and two museums of folklore and numismatics set up by the Department of Archaeology.
