“Spiritual”
Reviewed 26 March 2012

Janardhana Kovil as it is said in Malayalam is a calm and very beautiful temple in Varkala. It has got a rich keralite tradition, which is actually very attractive... The temple should be visited in the early mornings (6.30am-7.30 am), as its the best time to visit.

“Uplifting and spiritual”
Reviewed 29 December 2011

Wow what a place. Take the camera for wonderful photo opportunities. This is a real happening busy place in the evening where locals congregate. Water tanks outside are facinating, as you are able to watch people coming to cleanse. You may also get the chance to see the Temple elephant, around the village. Western women need to remember to respect the temple by taking some sort of cover for the arms. Great big banyan tree in the court yard, with small figured dolls hanging from the branches. This is the only place where we gave a donation and the women argued that it wasnt enough, so beware and remain firm when dealing with money. A good experience and well worth the visit

“a beautiful place”
Reviewed 15 December 2011

A huge inspiring temple with shrines to everyone! You are allowed to walk around, do puja and sit under the enormous Banyan tree. The snake singers will sing a song for you with their beautiful one string instrument.
