Locate 32 various forms of Lord Ganesha at Pazhavangadi Ganapathy Temple, dedicated to the widely known god that resembles an elephant. If you arrive early, join in the prayer, but remember that to do so, men must remove their shirts, while women must wear a shawl to enter the innermost chambers of the temple. If you want to make an offering or simply participate in local culture, purchase a coconut to smash on a particular rock in the temple. If you drive, keep in mind that parking is limited here.

  • Great temple managed by the army. Small but well followed temple in the middle of Thiruvananthapuram. Crowded mostly, almost no parking for vehicles. Nearest parking spot is Putherikandam Maidhanam or Gandhi park. Live drums during pooja time is a treat to the ears. Easy place to get your footwear picked, hence BEWARE!
  • One of the most famous Ganesh temple in Kerala; owned by Madras Regiment of Indian Army! :) And ya, its a herculean task to get a parking slot for cars! Prefer 2 wheelers or park your cars in Gandhi park or inside Fort!
  • It is a very old & very famous temple, God Elephant (Ganesha is considered to be most powerful god. So pepole come here to offer coconuts. People are often seen breaking coconuts in front of god Ganesha.
  • The busiest ganapathi temple in Trivandrum
