  • Absolute gem of a temple. Been visiting this since I was a kid. Huge spacious temple which lets you soak in the feeling of a classical kerala wedding. Pretty busy most of the days due to its popularity. Depending on which entrance you chose to come in from, there is ample car parking space.

  • You go there, forget everything, and then, you never want to return back. The aura there, is irresistible. If you know the trick, you will definitely feel the define presence. Just one thing, keep your thoughts clean

  • In my own spiritual journey, I became a swami on the Hindu path of Bhakti. In the Hindu tradition, a swami is a monk who forgoes regular family life for the purpose of making the whole world his family and channels his full energy into spiritual practice, devotion to God and service to humanity. Positive vibes here ... And feel good ....
