  • Mannarasala Sree Nagaraja Temple(Malayalam: മണണാറശ്ശാല ശ്രീ നാഗരാജാക്ഷേത്രം) is a very ancient and internationally known centre of pilgrimage for the devotees of serpent gods (Nagaraja). The famous Nagaraja temple "Mannarasala" is nestled in a forest glade, like most snake temples. The Mannarasala Temple has over 30,000 images of snakes along the paths and among the trees, and is the largest such temple in Kerala. Women seeking fertility come to worship here, and upon the birth of their child come to hold thanksgiving ceremonies here, often bringing new snake images as offerings.A special turmeric paste which is available at the temple is credited with curative powers.
  • Very calm and peaceful atmosphere... The temple is an ancient one and internationally famous... despite of the rush the queue management is too good and hence mo hassles... A very huge parking area is the in the compound... Many people call you for pay and parking on the way to the temple... But don't opt for any as there is enough parking space at the temole parking ground...
  • Very nice place. Beautiful atmosphere surrounded by small forest.
