About Joys Hotel & Resort
Poovar is almost at the southern tip of Trivandrum. It marks the end of Kerala. Its very close to Vizhinjan, natural harbor. The origin of the name “Poovar” has a story related to Marthanda Varma. Before that it was called Pokkumoosapuram. During internal riots in Travancore and while escaping from the Ettuveetil Pillamar (Lords of the Eight Houses), the king reached Poovar. It was a spring season and the trees on either sides of the Neyyar were full of flowers. These flowers fell into the river making it more attractive. On seeing this pleasant scenery, Marthanda Varma commented that this was poo-var, a conjunction of the Malayalam words for “flower” and “river”.
