Ananthaa Padmanabha Swaamy Temple

Location: 

This is a contemporary temple built in 1962 on land donated by His Highness Chitra Thirunal. Anantha Padmanabha, name derived from the words Padma (lotus) and nabha (navel), is depicted to be offering worship to Lord Shiva in the form of Linga. This temple is built on the same model as that of Sri Anantha Padmanabha Swamy Temple at Trivandrum. The inner chamber houses the statue of Lord Vishnu in the form of Anantha Padmanabha as placed in Trivandrum. There are three doors through which one can see the divine head, mighty body and lotus feet of the Lord who is lying on the divine snake Adisesha with its hood caring the Lords head. The right hand is resting and worshipping the Siva Lingam and the feet on a lotus. Springing from the navel is a lotus stem with flower on which Brahma is seated. This is worth religious place to visit, to those looks for solitude and enchanting peace.
