For those who have been to the 'original' Anantha Padmanabha Swamy temple in Trivandrum, this will be quite a let down. To compare the two would be like comparing chalk and cheese.

this temple is located at Adyar Gandhi Nagar. The temple is very clean and well maintained. the Main Deity is Lord Padhmanabha Swami. We have the pleasure of worshipping Ganesha, Goddess Durga, Anjeneyar and Navagraham also here. this is just like Trivandrum Padmanabha Swami temple.

The Ganesha, the Anjaneya, Durga Godess, the Navagrahams, the Arasa Maram Shiva Lingam are sheer delight to offer prayers too. Most days have a Music program or religious... More
