Anantha Padmanabhaswami Temple

Anantha Padmanabhaswami Temple

Sri Anantha Padmanabhaswamy Temple is located in the heart of Thiruvananthapuram city of Kerala State, South India. This famous temple is dedicated to Lord Vishnu.

THE SANCTUM Lord Ananta Padmanabhaswami is reclining on the thousand-hooded Adisesha or Ananta, absorbed in Yoganidra with Sridevi and Bhoodevi by His side. Brahma is seen in a lotus emanating from the Lord's naval and a Linga is seen near the left hand which shows Chinmudra. Garuda, Narada, Indra and all other Devas and Rishis are seen worshipping the Lord. This depicts the Brahmaanda Rahasyam when the Lord appeared at the beginning of a Yuga. To have darshan of the Lord, one has to climb a Mandapam made of a single stone slab (Otrakkal Mandapam in Malayalam) in front of the sanctum. The Lord is worshipped through three doors - the face in the south, the navel in the middle and holy feet in the north.

There are separate shrines for Ganapathi, Narasimha, Shiva, Subramanya and Rama. Dress code: Authorities in most Kerala temples are very strict about dress discipline. Gents must wear dhotis and take off shirts and banians before entering temples. Similarly, ladies in salwar kameez or pants are not allowed inside. They must change over to saris. These traditional items are available on hire at a special enclosure adjacent to the temple
