Trivandrum - Shanghumukham Beach

The Shanghumukham Beach is a favourite hub spot of sunset watchers. The gigantic mermaid sculpture called the Matsyakanyaka or Jalakanyaka steals the attention of the visitors of Shanghumukham Beach. This beautiful sculpture of leisurely reposing mermaid is 35 meters long and is completely carved out of stone. The locally renowned artist Kanai Kunjiraman is the creator of this amazing sculpture. The Shanghumukham Beach is placed in a quaint location, miles away from the teeming crowds. The serene atmosphere and the long stretch of white sands make it ideal for a stroll and beachside relaxation. It is situated very close to the Veli Tourist Village where you can enjoy boating.
