The corridors around the temple are so good and just sets us wondering whether such work can ever be made today with so much technology and the facilities we have. The architect was supposed...

This is a very good historical temple, amazing history and culture. please go on a weekday and in the morning around 8.30 AM, you will have less people so you can enjoy the place more. If you go on busy times than it is very busy.

It turns out you can't go inside if you're not Hindu. There doesn't seem to be any vantage point to see it from the outside either.

Shri Padmanabhaswamy Temple is a must visit place for all visitors to Trivandrum. This temple has recently been in the news due to the huge treasure found inside it.

Its a really nice n beautiful temple. Except for the darkness and the crowding in the main temple, its a highly spiritual place. Huge palace like structure. Lots of locked rooms, giving it a twist of mystery!

Very unique and very worth spending half hour in Trivandrum to have a look around the temple. You cannot go inside but it's still very impressive. Supposedly has ALOT of gold underneath it..
