Thiruvananthapuram literally means Ananthapur, “the city of Anantha”. Aanantha is the puranic serpent Sesha on whom the Padnabha or Vishnu reclines. Sri Padmanabha swamy is the main deity of the temple and it is located at the centre of the city. Modern history begins with Marthandavarma, who is generally regarded as the father of modern Travancore and made Thiruvananthapuram as his capital. After Marthandavarma, it remained the capital of Travancore and after independence, became capital of Travancore Kochi. The accession of Maharaja Swathy Thirunal ushered in an epoch of cultural progress and economic prosperity also known as 'Golden Era'

I been at this temple several times and each time I enter into the temple ,automatically I get goose bumps once I see the lord Padmanbhaswamy. Well maintained temple with good ethics where any men entering inside the temple should wear a dhothi without shirt less and ladies should wear either sarry and fully covered costumes. Try to visit this place in evening time.

The Padmanabaswamy temple is a must visit. Though it takes half a day to get to from the resort and back it is worth it. Outstanding temple.

Its an old structure, very well maintained. First thing to carry when visiting this temple is to have one angavastarm/lungi.. Without white colored lungi, they will not allow you inside temple.. Once you get in, you see many people wearing same costume. Uniformity in the temple makes you feel all are equal at gods place.. There are some top covered lanes, you have to walk in those lanes only, and remaining portion is filled with sand.. Once you enter main gate, you will see large deepa samey's.. Typical kerala style multi level deepa samey's.. Very clean, neatly maintained temple..
