This temple is the centre of the city and gives Trivandrum its name. Non-Hindus are not allowed inside but still it is worth a visit and see the setting and lanes with traditional houses and palaces.

The temple is managed greatly by Temple authorities and till the old traditions are followed inside the temple premises. If queue is longer, there is Rs.180 special ticket by which 2 persons can go for quick visit inside. And also you get special prasad box free for that ticket.
