Rather unusual for Kerala the temple was built in the Dravidian style with huge walk ways and magnificent pillars. Here in this temple unless like other temple Lord vishnu is in lying position and you are allowed to have Dharshan through 3 windows, starting with head,... More

I am not much of a temple person. I went their because my family wanted to visit the place. I like the concept of having dress code and it was followed strictly. Even the Kerala Police were wearing a Dhoti (Just dhoti, other than a Gun and an I card) inside the temple

Starting with the eye-catching Gopura, the majestic pillars, the magnificent building, Cute elephants, the otthakkal mandapam & our Glorious Padmanabhaswamy, The Richest God in the world, there are too many things actually to describe this centuries old temple!

The 260 years old Temple covers an area of 2400sq m. Its main entrance (gate way Tower) rises to over 30 m.In the innersanctum, the deity Padmanabha reclines on the sacred serpent. But you have to wear a cloth to enter the temple.

This is a very nice temple and a must visit if you travel to Trivandrum. This temple was apparently built on the 1st day of Kaliyuga, about 5000 years ago.
