Padmanabhaswamy Temple

 
 
It is the imposing seven-storied tower built by Raja Marthanda Varma in 1733 A.D, that makes it by far the most impressive landmark around the city. The Hindus have held the temple, dedicated to Lord Vishnu, sacred from antiquity. There are innumerable pillars, intricate carvings and mural paintings. Only Hindus are allowed inside and dress regulations are strictly followed. A large market, lines the street in front and the pool beside it is for ritual bathing.
