If you are going to Sri Padmanabha Swami Temple or East Fort bus station from trivandrum railway station, you'll surely attracted by this Pazhavangadi Ganapathy Temple like we did.

Very nice temple but when we visited the main door was closed. So before going check the timings. If i remember it right, perfect time to visit is from 7am to 10:30 am and after 4:30 pm to 6 pm is best rime to visit.

Situated in the heart of Thiruvananthapuram city at Pazhavangadi, nearly 1.5 kms from railway station as well as from bus stand Sree Maha Ganapathy Temple Pazhavangadi is a well known Ganapathi temple in Kerala. The idol was originally worshipped by a soldier of Travancore Army garrisoned at Padmanabhapuram and later when the capital of Travancore shifted from Padmanabhapuram to Trivandrum in 1795 A.D. the garrison was also shifted and the idol was installed at its present place Pazhavangadi.

Famous vazhipatu is the breaking of coconuts for fulfilment of any desire or obstacle besides other offerings like appam, modakam etc. and also Ganapathi-homa. No regulations in clothing. Footwear not permitted inside the premises.

Trust in Ganesh can take you to greater heights.. I visited many temples across the globe and never had the feeling what I experienced at Pazhavangadi Ganapathi Temple. It is a small temple in size but the way it changes our life is really great. Just pray and break 108 coconuts and leave the place and see the positive change in your life. I highly recommend every one visiting Trivandrum should visit the temple without any religious barrier.

A visit to Trivandrum is generally incomeplete without stepping into this holy shrine. Makes one feel lighter and stronger with every visit.

This temple is situated at East fort in Trivandrum city. Alll the city service buses starts from east fort. I used to go to this temple every week. This is a very good temple. coconuts are available in the near by shops for breaking in the temple. People from all the states are come to this temple. The statue of ganesh was in gold. This temple very near to famous Sri Padmanabhaswamy temple. Some of the major festivals celebrated at the temple are Vinayaka Chathurthi, Ganesh Jayanthi, Vishu, Maha Shivaratri. For entering in side the temple Men need to be wearing dhoti and no upper body clothing. And women has to wear saree of churidar but trousers are not allowed. Lather bags are not allowed inside temple. Photography is also not allowed. The temple is maintained by Indian Army.
