  • Calm and peaceful temple, there is one temple Pool outside it's beautiful lots of big fishes are inside the pool , if you come with children it would be great experience. There is one more thing to see outside the temple, one museum is there, i think timing starts from 9.30 am to 4.30 pm, you can see diffrent type of KATHAKALI roles and UDUKKU etc..
  • Such a good vibe.. This is one of the famous temples in kollam, kottarakkara with great historical importance. There are many legends about Kottarakara Ganapathy. Actually the main ‘Prathistha'(Idol) is Lord Siva, but well known for Lord Ganesha.. The exact name of the temple was Kizhakkekara Siva Kshethram. Very peaceful and positive atmosphere. May LORD GANESHA REMOVE ALL OBSTACLES from your life and bless you abundantly...
