Excellent temple with all old architechture and huge temple . If you want faster darshan buy special ticket for Rs. 150/- and go. You have to look at the deity in parts as it is huge padmanabha swami in sleeping posture . Place worth visiting .

The temple is beautiful, built in acres. We wanted to just go for darshan, and come back. But the temple staff (i would not say pujaris), are kind of rude, and dont respect people.

A great temple which was in the news recently for its hidden treasures. Visited it early morning on the only day we had in Trivandrum. Courtesy my colleague's briefing my wife and I were attired in the right dress - dhoti and sari. Do ensure you don't take your mobile phones or bags into the temple. Believe me, the temple... More

Neatly maintained Kerala temple. Temple is kept very clean, with sands filled up in open spaces whick make you to feel in tune with nature. No cumbersome queues , which is normal in other perumal temples. Men are allowed to go inside with only dhoti. Earlier Dhoti was available for rent. Now the dhotis are to be bought in temple...

They have very strict dress-code in place. However, the more you discuss the costumes the more you get confused. People will say many things but just follow these simple rules : - (a) Saree ( of any type) for ladies (b) In case someone is draped in Salwar-suit, at least she has to wrap herself up in a saree (c)...

An extremely neat and clean temple and the temple authorities adhere to strict code of conduct, a rare event where one gets to see the "lying posture", of Lord Padmanabha. The mural paintings on the inner walls depicting culture of that time is also worth admiring. Rules to be adhered when entering the temple: a) Male devotees are to uncover... More

Recent revelations and legal proceedings divulged long kept secrets regarding this ancient temple's hidden treasures. Vast expansive temple campus right in the middle of Thiruvananthapuram City has an old world charm that attracts tourists and pilgrims alike. Must visit place for people interested in history in Kerala.
