Padmanabhaswamy templeThis temple is home to Lord Vishnu in a reclining position, the temple is an architectural wonder filled with murals, sculptures, inscriptions and carvings. The temple is lit by oil/ghee filled lanterns and no artificial electricity is used withing. Men have to wear lungi (indian traditional dress) and remain bare chested. It is the richest temple in the world with tonnes of gold hidden inside its premises.
1) Sree Padmanabhaswamy temple:
Sri Padmanabhaswamy temple is not a just another temple in the area but its life and soul of the capital. T he deity is known as Anantha ( lord vishnu). the land of Anantha came to be known as the present Thiruvananthapuram. It is an important temple of lord VIshnu as per the puranas and beliefs of hinduism . The temple architecture is purely of kerala and dravidian style which is made up of granite and stone. Its not just the beliefs and the historical importance that makes this temple worth visiting but its marvelous architecture too.
As you obviously know, I''m not much into temples, but this one is beautiful. Not only because of the architecture,and the history, but the fact that the people there have immense respect for there culture makes you wish to respect their culture as well.
