“A great experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 15, 2013

A fascinating temple and we were lucky to have a Hindu guide to explain the different aspects of the temple. Regulations for entry are strict but understandable (and not intrusive)

“Religious place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 7, 2013

Admission is very strict and checking is like in Air-port! Temple is kept clean and dharsan is hassle-free normally.

“place of worship”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 6, 2013

one needs to wear a munda, or the white cloth that most keralite men wear during traditional events,
the temple is huge and gives a very calming presence, its a good place to go for some calm and mediation..

“Beautiful temple”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 6, 2013

We visited in January 2009 (not 2013!!). The lake beside the temple is very smelly. Non Hindus are not allowed in the temple however the Padmanabhapuram Palace is right beside the temple and well worth a visit. Trivandrum Zoo and botanical gardens are excellent and also well worth a visit
