Loved the peace and tranquility of the temple. The temple complex is well structured and a moment in prayer makes you feel at one with the almighty. Although, language is a massive barrier and a non-Malayalam has to basically observe other people and follow suit. Even the notice board for donations and purchase items are in Malayalam.

The temple is located close to the beach - about 500 meters. It is a very old temple, calm and peaceful. Opens very early in the morning, and closed from noon to 5PM. There is facility to keep baggage and footwear at the entrance to the temple. AC buses to Trivandrum stop at the junction near the temple.

Krishnatheeram ayurvedic beach resort is very near to the Sri Krishna Swami Temple, Varkala. For transportation, you have to request to the resort or wait for the riksha/taxi.

This temple is one of the oldest in the area and close to the beautiful Varkala beach. The temple is situated on the top of the cliff and a flight of stairs leads to the temple. The temple is not crowded during normal days.
