Reached temple just in time when it was about to be closed for afternoon. Darshan was good, one need to know how the deity is positioned i.e. sleeping position, to realize it at the time of darshan else you will keep wondering on did you really see the deity!

We have visited this temple on morning time 6:30 Am - 7:00 Am time slot and reached there 5:15 Am and got first darshan of lord vishnu in just Rs. 180 ticket for special darshan. Temple is very big and ancient there are hundred of pillers with beautiful sculptures on it.

Right in the centre of Trivandrum, this temple is a must visit for its historical and cultural significance. Unlike the other temples, you can enjoy its beauty and clever architecture even if you are not a devotee.

We saw the positive reviews and that it was the #1 item on things to do in Trivandrum. But we were informed by our guide that non-Hindus were strictly not allowed. You will end up visiting the Padmanabhapuram Palace next door as a consolation prize, otherwise it would be an utterly wasted journey.

When in Trivandrum visit to this holy shrine is a must! Temple is very huge like Anantha Padmanabha Swamy. Deity in sanctum is to be viewed from three doors. His darshan is a great spiritual experience . Well populated by pilgrims this season.
