MODERN HISTORY

Travancore
state. The modern town of Nagercoil
Nagercoil

Padmanabhapuram
, about 20 km to the north of Nagercoil. The capital was later shifted to Trivandrum, now Thiruvananthapuram

state. In the erstwhile Travancore
Travancore
state, Nagercoil
Nagercoil
was the second most important town in the state, after the capital Trivandrum.His successors continued the reforms he instituted. Although Travancore
Travancore
was considered by many to be a " Hindu
Hindu
" administration, the rulers generally showed religious tolerance, and were not hostile to European educators, missionaries and traders. Until the 19th century, the coffers of Travancore
Travancore
were greatly helped by revenues from the trade of pepper and other spices, with the European powers. Irrigation systems (an excellent system is still found around Nagercoil), dams, roads, schools etc. developed under the able administration of the Travancore
Travancore
regents and their Dewan
Dewan
. The British in India
India
considered Travancore
Travancore
a "model native state". At the time, Travancore
Travancore
was the most socially developed, and one of the most economically developed states under the British Raj
British Raj
. During the British Raj, Travancore
Travancore
was essentially a vassal-state to the British , but the British never interfered in the general administration of the state.

At the time of India's independence from Britain , the then Dewan
Dewan
of Travancore, Sir C. P. Ramaswami Iyer , preferred Travancore
Travancore
to be a sovereign country, but eventually gave up after a tough stand by Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel , India's federal minister in charge of home affairs, as also the Indian National Congress
Indian National Congress
. The late Sir C. P. Ramaswami Iyer is still held in high esteem in Nagercoil, for the many developmental projects he undertook in the then South Travancore, of which the town was a part. After a political fight in the 1950s led by Marshal Nesamony , the Government of Travancore- Cochin

gave part of Tamil Nadu

It is difficult to ascertain the exact age of the Nagaraja temple. There is no authentic epigraph to aid the historian with its chronology. The mountain Mahendragiri in the Kanyakumari district is referred to as the abode of Nagas in the Ramayana of Valmiki. From this, it can be presumed that the origin of Naga influence in the area goes back to legendary times.From the five-headed-serpent deity of the temple, the name of this place (city) Nagercoil
Nagercoil
is derived; gradually its old name, Kottar, has mostly faded. There is a part of town called Kottar, so the old name remains. Within a five kilometer radius of the temple, there has been no recorded human death from snake bite.

Nagercoil
Nagercoil
is home to the Nanjilnadu cuisine , which is one of the famous cuisine in the state. This cuisine is known for its unique appetizing, savory and delicious Spiced Local Touch. These food traditions are believed to have been passed on through the Chera, Chola and Pandya kings, which was found in literary works like Bhojana Kudhoogalam (Ecstasy of Food), Baga Saastram (Art of Cooking), Tamizhar Uravu (Tamil Kinship), and Marattiar Seppedugal (Maratta Copper Plate Inscriptions). The Nanjinadu seafood cuisine also has its unique flavour followed widely in the states of Tamil nadu
Tamil nadu
and Kerala . Food prepared here is also a mix of Kerala/ Tamil Nadu
Tamil Nadu
traditions. Puttu, Appam, Idiappam are popular food items and so are rice murukku, and achu-murukku. Curries here are made with coconut and coconut oil which is now considered Nanjil or Nagercoil
Nagercoil
style cooking. The modernisation and sophistication that has crept into the present lifestyle has not erased out most of the traditional food culture of the city. But a unique feature is that some traditional rare dishes are becoming endangered or are going extinct, due to the negligence of learning by the future generation. It enjoys a blend of Tamil and Keralite cuisine. Rice is the staple food. Fish is popular and forms a part of everyday meal for many. People generally prefer marine fish to freshwater fish.

The food is generally spicy with coconut an important ingredient in almost all side dishes and curry, very much like that of neighbouring Kerala. Seafood, chicken, mutton and beef are widely available and popular among the people, though there are also some vegetarians in and around the town. Banana ">
