I always believe that if you have faith then only you should visit such places. The temple is quite remarkable in a huge area and there are specific time and dress code for entrance. Queues could be arduous however once in front of the deity , you really cherish being there

Though the police men are there wearing dhotis and gun we had good darshan. Strict scanning. But women are not allowed in salwars also. only saris. It is awkward to see many ladies wearing a small piece of dhoti around their waist over their salwar . or a skirt/pavada below the kurti.!!

Temple is historic and gives real feeling of visiting a holy place. Excellent architecture and vast area of temple speaks about richness of old India. One has to wear traditional cloths to enter in the temple which are available at affordable rate out side of temple. Nice management compare to other big temples of India.

The architecture of the temple is undeniably beautiful. To enter the temple, you need to take off your clothes and dress in traditional attire which is available for purchase at the temple itself. You are not allowed to carry your mobile phones and other items inside the purse. Basically, nothing except your wallet. There is a place to stow your... More

There was nothing to see in Trivandrum except chaos. The day we spent a tidy sum getting a taxi to it, there was a long queue waiting in the hot sun. When finally getting to the entry, was told foreigners are not allowed in but can see the palace. Forget it. No point at all as you have to wait... More
