  • A tranquil setting with a little bit of well-kept forest around. A temple that is dedicated to snakes is a very beautiful gesture that teaches people to respect the natural world. This temple also teaches people about snakes. A pleasure for the eyes are the tortoises and fishes in the pond that are on the smaller side. In addition to that, there is always the opportunity to do some light shopping for things like toys. People travelling long distances will consider this location a halfway station because it has a restroom and a handful of smaller restaurants. Ample space available for parking. Annadanam available.
  • The temple is situated in the forest amidst trees in a cool and quiet place, which is typical of the snake temples in the country. Filled with images of thousands of serpents, this temple is known for being the largest of its kind in the southern state of Kerala. The temple is revered by the devotees, who believe that by offering certain things to the Nagaraja, all their wishes would be fulfilled.
