  • 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.
  • Divinity for sure inside temple. Ignore some commercial minded people, all places have them these days. Lord is really beautiful and one will find time running short to admire his presence. It's magnificent. That's the truth. Parking issue persist but the security folks are very helpful to give advise to accommodate your vehicle. Para Brahmam!!
