Pazhavangadi Ganapathy Temple, Thiruvananthapuram (Trivandrum)

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.
