About Kanyakumari

Kanyakumari District consists of those parts known locally as Nanjil Nadu and Idai Nadu. The names of the towns of the district such as Azhagiapaandipuram, Bhoothapandy, Kalkulam and Thovalai are also mentioned in old Sangam literature. The present day town owes its historical importance to a series of events that happened between two local kingdoms: Venad (also called Travancore) and Kolathunadu (also called Cochin). In 1741 Marthanda Varma King from Venad captured Raja Rama Varma ruler Kolathunadu at Battle of Colachel; after this he took over all lands up to Anjarakkandi on his way back to Trivandrum from Colachel through Padmanabhapuram . He then made Kanyakumari his capital for almost one year before shifting it back again to Thiruvananthapuram in 1742.
