It's an epitome of Indian intricate drawing, elaborate drawings. Temple has very strict timings and it has long queue. Entry is strictly in mundu or sari for women. There are shops outside if you are not in proper attire

A must visit. A beautiful murty of lord Vishnu. There is a dresss code to visit the temple. Please follow it, though there is locker, it is time consuming and hence better come prepared. You can buy special puja ticket to save time and avoid long line.

We had been there on feb 12, 2017! There are dress codes to enter this temple as it is their tradition. Men are allowed only with Dothi, and women have many dresscode restrictions too! We were happy enter the temple with dothi. The temple is kept clean all the time, very well mainted, very calm, tranquil and divine!

A visit to Trivandrum is complete only after a visit to this ancient temple. The moment you enter the temple, a strange divinity touches you. Strictly adhere to the dress code. No mobiles allowed. No photography allowed. A small wallet is allowed inside. There are cloak rooms available outside the temple where you can change your clothes and deposit your... More
