Thiruvananthapuram District is the southernmost district of the Indian state of Kerala. It came into existence in the year 1957. The headquarters is the city of Thiruvananthapuram (Trivandrum) which is also the capital city of Kerala.[1]

The district has an area of 2192 km▓, and a population of 3,234,356 (as per the 2001 census), the second most populous district in Kerala after Malappuram district. It is divided into four taluks, Thiruvananthapuram, Chirayinkeezhu, Neyyattinkara, Nedumangadu. The urban bodies in the district are the Thiruvananthapuram Corporation, Varkala, Neyyattinkara, Attingal and Nedumangad municipalities.[2]

Thiruvananthapuram district is situated between north latitudes 8║ 17' and 8║ 54' and east longitudes 76║ 41' and 77║ 17'. The southern most extremity, Parassala, is 56 km away from Kanyakumari, the "land's end of India".[3] Thiruvananthapuram city, built on seven hills, has today grown a sprawling metropolis. But the city still retains her past glory and charm, and in spite of the frenetic pace of modern life, perhaps it is the most sedate of the big cities of the State.

The district is 33.75% urbanised.[4]
