Thiruvananthapuram's most interesting temple is dedicated to Lord Vishnu. The temple is a blend of the Kerala and Dravidian style of architecture. It is a best example of south Indian architecture, with an impressive seven -story gopuram (tower). It is known for its murals and carvings. In the main courtyard, the Kulashekara mandapam, there is some intricate granite sculpture; more can be appreciated on nearly 400 pillars supporting temple corridors. Only Hindus are allowed inside the temple and they have rules of clothing even for male Hindus, who must enter wearing only a white dhoti.Read more
