  • You can see a pond on your right as you enter the temple premises. But you have to be in proper dress code to enter temple. You can get it on rent or you can buy it over there. Temple staff is helpful, cooperative yet disciplined. Amazing temple in terms of sculptures, artifacts and architecture. Above all you can feel peace inside yourself as you enter the temple. And as you see Lord Sree Padmanabhaswamy, you want to sit in front of him for hours and stare at him. Amazing place full of positive energy.
  • Beautiful temple. And in night it looks too much beautiful. And once you reach the point(main temple inside) remember god Krishna is lying down. He is visible in 3 parts as he is lying down. Left hand side is head , center is stomach and in right side you will see legs Mobile phone are not allowed inside the temple. There are 4 gates to the temple. While going note down that from which gate you are entering, else you might get lost.
  • This temple has something very special. Even on the walls of the temple. Very fine rock art painted on the wall of the temple. Temple is really good. And yes, to visit this temple you have to wear dhoti. They won't allow you to wear anything else or keep something with you except wallet. It's like dream come true! 😊 I always wanted to visit this place and finally I got a chance to visit.
  • Great architecture. The discipline among the staff is amazing. This temple will always be going to have a sweet impressions in your mind. This is a great place to visit with family and friends. You will definitely find peace in the heart once you visit this temple. The spirituality will definitely make you fall in love with this place.
  • Good place ,good behaviour of staffs Good environment, no word to describe, we can feel everything Their is a pond and most important is that women must wear sari type dress Don't wear leggings, pants like that.
