  • Must visit place in varkala. Calm place. U have good chances of getting prasaran of u visit the temple at around 11 AM

  • Om Sree Janardhanaya Parabrahmane Namah!! I'm fortunate to be born from this place.. Its one of the ancient temples of Kerala and India, more than 2000 years old. Janardhana Swami is the Idol , its a form of Lord Maha Vishnu. The ambiance is great, your mind will be in a tranquil state if you sit and mediate for few minutes. The vibes are so powerful to heal any illness of the mind. There is a large Banyan Tree in the temple premises which is older than the temple itself. Let HIM show you the way.. Namaste, Toms Rema Vasudevan
