Day 2

We woke up and had breakfast at hotel it was complimentary .I loved the food in hotel and outside too and it was cheaper compared to Bangalore :P , then we started for Shree Padmanaswamy Temple (it is famous for lord Vishnu's unique idol and it is famous for having tonnes of gold inside it ) .We went to temple around 11 am and there is dress code which we have to follow strictly.Women are allowed to wear sarees, long skirt or a dhoti while entering the temple and men are allowed in dhoti.Dress codes are there but nothing to worry u can easily get rent / buy dress to visit the place from temple entrance.Mobile phones/camera are not allowed to carry inside the temple they have paid cloak rooms outside the temple ,where you can submit the phones and collect it back after darshan. The temple is well maintained and you get a old world charm.Special darshan is available with 200 rupees ticket.We had normal darshan which took around 40 minutes after that we started from the temple around 2 PM towards Kovalam Beach.
