True abode of God

you want to have real peace of mind, better visit this temple. But I dislike heavy security and demand for money to light the lamp.

My family (me, wife and 2 kids) visited Shri Padmanabhaswamy Temple in March at noon time. I would advice the following preparedness before you visit - 1. Men: need to wear Lungi (waist wrap) without any shirt. Lungi is available at shop for Rs. 60-100. No shirt allowed. 2. Women: need to wear saree - available at shop for Rs.... More

Many are surprised by the custom of men having to remove shirt and vest before entering the temple. They have to wear dhoti and trousers are strict no. Women are expected to wear sari. It... More

The major disappointment is the darshan of Sri Padmanabhaswamy, for me nothing is visible in garbhalayam...... More
