  • Hai we took a pooja plate,so we make dharsana quickly two members are allowed for one pooja plate , Afternoon no VIP tickets(rs 150 for per person) issued , surely i did not know check it. 
  • awsome temple...better to go early in the morning or after 3 pm....nearby attractions are kuthira malika(entry fee..rs 30 for adult and 15 for children...dont go for chitralaya museum....not worthy.. 
  • There are certain restrictions to visit this famous temple so you should be mentally prepared for that, wearing dhoti and all.....good experience.

  • i have been to many temples on earth... but the spirituality which i experienced at this place is worth a visit... the place is very peaceful and calm.... the architecture of the temple and the Lord are wonderful and will always stay captured in my heart....
  • You have to wear lungi to get into the temple and no other thing but wallet is allowed strange. Very good place to be calm and to connect with god. very very ancient place. As per my knowledge every one there has just assumption of the history. No one have a true evidence or story that they know.
  • Sree Padmanabha Swamy temple is Very beautiful temple and must visit place in Trivandrum. Temple is one of the most popular and old Vishnu temple in south India. The word 'Thiruvananthapuram' literally means 'the land of Sree Anantha Padmanabhaswamy'. You have to keep luggage and phones in cloakroom as it is not allowed inside the temple. Another important thing is ladies should enter the Temple with saree or Dhoti and Gents should enter the Temple without shirt. Nearest railway station: Thiruvananthapuram Central, 1 km away Nearest airport: Trivandrum International Airport, 6 km away
  • The deity of this temple, Lord Padmanabha is in Ananthasayanam posture. And thus the city got its name Thiruvananthapuram.
  • This temple in Trivandrum is very special. You have to enter only with Dhoti or Mundu. The lord Anantha Sayana is 18 feet and lying down and you see him in three segments via three doors. Temple is huge and architecture is superb. Also richest temple . They found plenty of gold in the inner chambers very recently. Visit and receive His blessings!we were there in 1979
