All men need to wear dhotis - buy one in any nearby shop. The Vishnu idol is beautiful. The temple architecture is awesome. You can park your vehicle in one of the bylanes and walk to the temple.

Probably the biggest temple in Kerala. its architecture is marvelous, Besides devotees, tourists are also visiting the temple complex. Security is very strict these days after the discovery of the treasures unearthed from the underground rooms of the temple.

Thereafter the security as well as surveillance was added to the entries of the temple. When the sun sets in the evening, it can be viewed descending through gaps... More
