  • We had great darshan of Lord. We took 50 rupees ticket. But, due to some pooja around noon time, it took more than 1 hour to wait and then see God. After darshan, we had food at the temple itself...

  • One of the famous and beautiful Vishnu Temple in Kerala. It is considered as the richest place of worship in the world. The architecture is so beautiful. You have to wear proper traditional dress for entering to the temple. You can buy these dress from outside of the temple. The temple and its surroundings are clean and well maintained. The temple is 24×7 under police surveillance.
  • A temple steeped in ancient architecture... Walking through the corridors, one is transported to another era... The piety of the sanctum Santorum is another world... People visiting for the first time need to be cognizant of the dress code here (single piece dhoti for men and sari for women)... While you can buy it from there, the changing rooms are makeshift metal boxes and there's no support for a first timer struggling to get into the attire.
