HolidayIQ Reviewer Anindya Basu says, “A place to remember! Dressed in traditional Keralite attire, a mundu (a dhoti) and a shawl, I had one of the best days of my trip this year. Sri Padmanabha Swamy is an enormous temple with many gates. I was guided in through the north gate. On the way to the main temple, there is a temple of the Narasimha avatar of Lord Vishnu. On its right is a narrow entrance that leads to the inner spectacle. Like in all temples of Kerela, the only source of light in the evening was lamps hanging from the top.” Read Full Review
