THE TEMPLE OF SRI PADMANABHA

tradition devotees of the Lord Padmanabha. Umayamma Rani, grandmother of Marthanda Varma during her reign (1677-84) saw to it that the daily rites and festivals of temple were properly conducted. While she stayed the capital she would go every day to the shrine to ma her obeisance and never took her food before the noonday worship. And it is on record that once she had to forgo altogether, as, for some reasons, the noonday worship could not be performed. The tradition continues even today.

Standing on an elevated part of the town and with its lofty eastern gopuram rising seven stories high with curious pagoda effect at its peak, the Padmanabhaswami temple is the main landmarkof Trivandrum. Trivandrum itself derives its name from Tiru -Ananta -puram, which means the place of the sacred serpent, Ananta or Adisesha on which the Lord Padmanabha reclines.
