This is a very old temple. Recently it was in news for huge amount of treasure found. However, this is a beautiful temple with wonderful architecture. Also, the place is nicely managed and very clean. You would be awed by the enormity of the temple and its architecture.

It is supposed to be one of the richest temple, so definitely worth a visit. The statue of lord vishnu is very good, however it is not fully visible. Clothes: they are very rigid about it. For Ladies: Traditional kerela 2 pc dress, wrap around or long skirt will also do, otherwise they make you purchase a lungi or dhoti... More

This ancient temple have a lot of stories to tell you.Being a Trivandrum resident we are blessed with Sree padmanabha. From this mysterious temple recently found a lot of Nidhi which is kept here by raja's centuries back. Must wear Kerala traditional dress, if you are planning to visit here.

If you are coming from a crowded place like Delhi Mumbai or any other metro and landing at Trivendram then u must visit the temple. First reason is the dress. Men have to wear dhoti and nothing on top. Second is the cool and calm ambience of temple which will definitely sound peaceful. Architecture of temple is good all stone... More

A must visit temple if one is in Trivandrum. This place has a rich history and tradition which is still followed by the people here. The erstwhile Kings of Travancore were called Padbhanabadasa and considered the presiding deity and the ruler while they ruled on his behalf. The various important temple ceremonies are commenced in presence of the royal family.
